Is Omicron going to crush Beijing’s chance to hold the Olympic games? The new variant is highly contagious, and it challenges the effectiveness of Beijing’s “zero covid” policy. That is, the Chinese government will lock down an entire city in an attempt to eliminate COVID in the area. In this episode I lay out some of the political implications and hard choices Xi Jinping, the Chinese leader, has to make facing the ongoing surge.
Plus, I spoke with Dr. Robert Atkinson, the president and founder of ITIF. He tells us what risks are associated with tech companies that are invested in China. Recent news regarding Tesla’s new store in Xinjiang drew wide attention. Dr. Atkinson tells us how China steals intellectual property and then weaponizes it through export.
