In this episode, we report on China’s 20th Party Congress, where Xi further consolidated his power. We also consider whether the U.S. is going down the right path with its own Industrial Policy to counter China. As usual, there is a lot on the Russia-Ukraine front, including Russia’s attack on Ukraine’s electrical grid.
We then turn to Iran to discuss the resilience of their ongoing protests. The U.K. has a new Prime Minister. Will he bring stability to the politics there, and is that enough? Finally, Brazilians went to the polls last Sunday to vote for their next President, and we cover what you need to know about this election.
CORRECTION: The author of the twitter thread on negotiating with Putin was attributed to Dan Nexon, but was actually @ProfPaulPoast.
