What It Takes to Understand China Right Now

(Bloomberg) --

Every week, hosts Joe Weisenthal and Tracy Alloway take you on a not-so-random walk through hot topics in markets, finance and economics.

China’s stock market seems to have born the brunt of concerns over a burgeoning trade war with the U.S. Meanwhile, its economy is slowing after years of debt-fueled growth. On this week’s Odd Lots, we talk about the short-term pressures facing China and its longer-term ambitions. We speak with George Magnus, a long-term China watcher and author of “Red Flags: Why Xi’s China is in Jeopardy.”
