Amy Hao joins us to greatly illuminate the hidden subtexts of the on going 20th Communist Party Congress in Beijing. She explains why senior party leaders don’t wear Covid masks, while lower ranked party members do. She also mentions that 4 high ranking party members, including Jiang Zemin were absent and that one party member did not clap when everyone else did. The conversation also turns to the clandestine power of Blackrock, the semiconductor trade war and the best way for the US to effect positive political change in China.
