At some stage in the near future China is likely to overtake the US as the world’s largest economy. The nations are clashing diplomatically too – over what the US sees as Chinese aggression in the South China Sea and what China sees as American interference in “their” region. What would the election of Trump or Clinton mean for US relations with China – and who would Chinese leaders prefer? Monocle’s Steve Bloomfield is joined by Chas Freeman, president Nixon’s interpreter at his famous meeting with Mao in 1972; Rana Mitter, the director of the Oxford China Centre; Kerry Brown author of ‘The Rise of Xi Jinping’; and the Chinese novelist Diane Wei Liang.
