Will Xi’s Economic Meltdown
Precipitate a Hot War?

Indications that Trouble for the CCP at Home
Will Mean More Trouble for Us

The evidence continues to mount that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is in real difficulty financially, economically, demographically and politically. Some assert that such problems will preclude Xi Jinping from pursuing his ambitions to acquire Taiwan, by one means or another, or engage in aggression against her friends, like us.

The totality of Xi’s policies and conduct, however, suggest that – if anything – the Communist emperor is actually more likely to act aggressively under these circumstances.

This CPDC webinar examines: the nature and extent of the CCP’s internal difficulties; its preparations nonetheless of the Chinese people, society and military for the sacrifices required to mobilize for and wage war; and the further encouragement Xi Jinping may be taking from the combined effects of an American president who is, at best, unwilling to treat Communist China as an adversary and, at worst, incentivizing Xi’s aggression by making this country ever-more-vulnerable to conflict.
