“Assuming that China can’t do something is a really bad bet to make” Rich Turrin 9:02
This interview is simply the best I have ever done if you want to learn about modern China and where it’s going. It is less focused on CBDC but covers geopolitical issues and what life in modern China is like.
I had so much fun talking with Dr. David Oualaalou PhD& Dr. Ross Stewart PhD and am very grateful for the opportunity to appear on “Geopolitics in Conflict.”
Great moment where I go off-script to talk about my community in China. David and Ross love it!
What makes this podcast so much fun is that it really was a discussion between the three of us with lots of comments and back and forth banter. I know you’ll have fun!
