China’s Place in the War in Ukraine | Quick Take | GZERO Media

China’s place in the war in Ukraine

Ian Bremmer's Quick Take: Hi, everybody. Ian Bremmer here, from New Orleans of all things. I have a little bit of work down here and I thought I would bring you an opening to the week, our Quick Take.

So much going on with the war. I haven't talked much yet about China and its relations to what's going on in Ukraine, but it is coming a bigger and a bigger deal because at the end of the day, no matter what happens on the ground in Ukraine, the relationship economically between Russia and the West is broken. It is not coming back as long as Putin is there. The Europeans are going to spend more on defense. Structurally, they will end their energy dependence and much of their trade with Russia. That is, I mean even if you were to have a peace settlement and the Russians all leave Ukraine, which is not about to happen, you would still break that relationship.

Should Investors Bet on China Over US? | GZERO World

Should investors bet on China over the US?

Hard to say these days, even for a billionaire hedge-fund manager like Ray Dalio.

On the one hand, America has a better system, better tech, and better universities. On the other hand, China "has us outnumbered" in population and pace of per capita income growth.

China, he explains, has not only become a powerful competitor. The US has changed, too.

"[The] America that I remember is a different, uh, and grew up with is a different America than it exists today in terms of like equal opportunity and the American dream."

Ian Explains: America Down, China Up | GZERO World

Is the US in decline while China’s power grows?

Who said last year that the biggest source of chaos in the present-day world is the US?

Not the leader of Russia. Not of North Korea. Not even of Iran.

It was Xi Jinping, who believes America poses a major risk for China.

Does China’s Rise Have To Mean America’s Decline? | GZERO World with Ian Bremmer

Does China's rise have to mean America's decline?

The US and China are as wary of each other as they've ever been. But the Chinese think they are on the rise, while America is declining.

On this episode of GZERO World, Ian Bremmer talks to billionaire Ray Dalio, head of the world's largest hedge fund, who thinks rising US debt, a widening wealth gap among Americans, and the meteoric rise of China all play into Beijing's plans to overtake the US as a global superpower.

Why a US-China War Is Unlikely in 2022 | GZERO World

Why a US-China war is unlikely in 2022

The US may not have its political house in order right now, but neither does China. And that reality, explains Ian Bremmer, is what will prevent any cold or hot war between the world's two most powerful nations in 2022.

China faces several problems. Its economic engine is running out of gas, its population is aging, and its debt is out of control.

China's repression & global influence; US stimulus & Trump v Murdoch | Quick Take | GZERO Media

China's repression and growing global influence; US stimulus, and Trump vs. Murdoch

Watch: Ian Bremmer with your last Quick Take of 2020. 2021, just around the corner. We know it's going to be better. I mean, not immediately. It's going to take some time. We're still in the teeth of this crisis. But 2021 feels like many of us are going to emerge from crisis. And that is a positive thing. The idea of going to work every day, sending your kids to school, just being normal, being a little bit more normal, something that I wish for all of us as soon as humanly possible.

Back to the news of the day: I was so disturbed to see this citizen journalist get four years in prison in China for reporting on what the Chinese government was doing in Wuhan in terms of the scale of the pandemic, the crackdown and the rest. She's been on hunger strike for some time. The sentencing came down just a few hours ago. All of three hours in the courts, such as they are. We know no rule of law, no independent judiciary in China. And don't you dare go after the official narrative. That is frowned upon to say the least.

How The US-China Relationship Would Change Under a “President Biden” | GZERO Media

How the US-China relationship would change under a “President Biden”

"Instead of simply embracing China, we have to draw clear lines about where China can legitimately pursue its interests and where we are going to push back." According to Anne-Marie Slaughter, who was a top State Department official under President Obama, a President Biden would do well to avoid blaming Beijing for the pandemic. There will be plenty else, aside from pointing fingers, for the two countries to worry about. She talks to Ian Bremmer on GZERO World.

Ian Bremmer: Executive Orders, Stimulus & US-China | Quick Take | GZERO Media

Quick Take: Executive orders, stimulus & US-China

Ian Bremmer's QuickTake:

It's Monday, coronavirus still going on. Plenty to talk about.

I mean, I guess the biggest news in the United States is the fact that we still don't have any stimulus going forward. I mean, now, keep in mind, this is on the back of an exceptionally strong initial US economic response, over 10% of GDP, ensuring relief for small businesses, for big corporations, and most importantly, for everyday American citizens, many of whom, large double digit numbers, lost their jobs, a lot of whom lost them permanently but didn't have to worry, at least in the near term, because they were getting cash from the government. Is that going to continue?
