Seventy years ago, on October 1st 1949, Mao Zedong Chairman of the Chinese Communist Party stood in Tiananmen Square in Beijing and proclaimed the establishment of the People’s Republic of China. Since then, relations between the US and China have developed along an unstable timeline sometimes seeing the two nations working in unison toward shared objectives, while at other times being at odds politically and economically. Through it all, AEI scholars analyze the relationship and provide actionable policy recommendations to Congress and the White House.

The post The People’s Republic of China appeared first on American Enterprise Institute – AEI.

    I too think that Zi and the other Communist leaders will rue the day they decided to get rid of the succession method. That is always a huge flaw in Communist and other totalitarian regimes and they nominally had solved it. I’m with Ms. Pletka on not having a lot of hope for the Hong Kong and Chinese situation but here’s hoping we are wrong.

    Marc Thiessen, you must be wrong. According to plenty of the other Ricochet podcasters, Xi has played Trump like a fiddle and things are going swimmingly for him. Any pressure that Xi is supposedly experiencing due to Trump’s policies is just a MAGA fantasy.

    The mainland police comment reminds me of something I read about the Tienamen square massacre. The communists brought in troops from the country side to do the dirty work. They did not use soldiers based in Peking.
