China has been warning for years that it will take control of Taiwan, an independent, democratically-ruled island off of China's eastern coast. China has been using a number of grayzone warfare tactics to try to get it to surrender voluntarily, but so far it hasn't worked. A recent incident in Taiwan's waters has made the possibility of a war very real, and China has been stepping up its encroachment into Taiwan's territory ever since. In this just us episode of China Unscripted, we discuss China's latest provocative moves, McDonald's plans to expand in China, and how Chinese-made shipping cra ..read more

China's rocket-fueled economic rise has not only slowed significantly in the past few years, but if you strip away all the government propaganda that makes the economy look better than it is, China's economy could even be shrinking. This has investors short-selling or bailing faster than the passengers on the Titanic. In this episode of China Unscripted, we discuss the effect that the Hong Kong national security law had on Hong Kong, how that's affecting the economy, and what the Hong Kong security law 2.0 might look like.

China trying to meddle in US elections may not be front page news anymore because it's been going on for so many years. But that doesn't mean it's no longer a threat. In fact, China's attempts to interfere in US democracy are more alarming than ever, and China's doing it in more ways than you might think. In this episode of China Unscripted, we talk about how China is trying to meddle in American democracy, what the US should do about China's militarized islands in the South China Sea, and why the US response to conflicts in the Middle East and Europe have an effect on China's plan to invade T ..read more

China is one of Israel's biggest trading partners, and a big investor in Israel's tech industry. However, after Oct. 7, it turned out that that relationship was only skin deep.

In this episode of China Unscripted, we discuss the China-Hamas relationship, Israel's relationship with China, and how China is perceived in the Middle East. Joining us in this episode is Jonathan Cristol, a professor of international affairs at Yeshiva University in New York City and author o ..read more
