China: Engage or Disengage? w/ Sir Vince Cable and Daniel Burke

A Story Club: Global Politics S1 E8
streamed live on FB from the US (San Francisco), India (Dehra Dun) and Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean, Thursdays 12pm EDT | 9am PDT | 9:30pm IST

Is China on its way to becoming the leading global superpower? Should we be fearful of that? Should other countries try to stop or counter its rise? 

Is China a hostile or non-cooperative force, responsible for the spread of not only the coronavirus, but also totalitarian lockdown measures?

Or is China undergoing a peaceful rise, helping hundreds of millions of people around the world experience real development for the first time, and advancing humanity as a whole technologically, economically and otherwise?

What should the rest of the world’s relationship to China be? Europe, Britain, the US, India, Africa, the Muslim countries, and even its allies Russia and Iran?

With the upcoming US Presidential elections and Britain transitioning out of the EU, join me, Dr. Kirk Meighoo, in discussion with Sir Vince Cable, former leader of the Liberal Democrat party and Secretary of State for Business Innovation and Skills, and Daniel Burke, LaRouche Independent Candidate for the US Senate (New Jersey)
