Going into 2022, a topic that will stick around is how China will use economic aggression to bully western nations. I sat down with Dr. Antonio Graceffo for a preview of what to expect in China affairs for the new year. From the ongoing U.S.–China trade war and political war, more nations are being sucked into the turmoil. One shining example in all the chaos seems to be Lithuania, which is standing up to China. This comes as China uses economic pressure on Lithuania, but the Baltic state is fighting back. We also talked about how China’s economic model and system will be evaluated against the rest of the world. In this special interview, we discuss the threat of communist China to the global economy and how to view the future of U.S.–China politics.
