Society & Culture:Philosophy
Rob Tracinski talks with Bob Garmong, former lecturer at Dongbei University of Finance and Economics, about his experiences in China and the prospects for the country's future. The conversation includes: why China turned against liberalism, whether it is really as powerful as Western observers hope or fear, how Communism in China was different from Stalinism, how to pronounce "Xi Jinping" without sounding like you're ordering the chicken, and the one quality he thinks is mostly likely to save the country from disaster.
