Scott was joined by Joseph Solis-Mullen to talk about the overblown fear of a global Chinese takeover. Solis-Mullen has been following the current wave of China fearmongering very closely and gives Scott an overview of what today’s hawks are saying. They then dig into the conflict over Taiwan and talk about the probability of an invasion, the popular talking points about microchips and how incredibly costly a war over the island would be. They finish with a quick rundown of the many domestic political, ethnic and geographic problems the regime in Beijing faces.
Discussed on the show:
- “What the China Literature Gets Wrong” (Libertarian Institute)
- Chip War by Chris Miller
