Hey China!, Released on 9/25/20 (Recorded on 9/7/20)
Consistently bullish on China, Mr. Rogers spoke with us amidst the global coronavirus pandemic about the on-going trade war and tech war between the US and China, the stimulus, and the future of global trade and finance. With Huawei at the center of the global technology competition, Mr. Rogers sheds wisdom, drawn from history, on the shifts of global technological leadership over the modern Industrial Era. He believes that the best approach is to welcome global technological competition and for countries to continue to open up, including America and China. Drawing lessons from the abysmal 1930s, he warned against the rise of isolationism and protectionism, spoke out against the relentless money printing by central banks, shared his optimism about China, discarded the idea that TikTok constitutes a security or privacy threat.
