The U.S.-China relationship will figure prominently in global politics for decades to come. Getting China right, to the extent that’s possible, is critically important both to minimize the chances of conflict and maximize potential cooperation.

And what do American policymakers miss when it comes to China and its authoritarian leader?
Join Aaron David Miller as he sits down with David Rennie, the Economist’s Beijing bureau chief and Chaguan columnist, to discuss these and other issues.
