312 | Christopher Marquis: How China's Communist Roots Shape Its Economy, State Party, and Xi Jinping's Ambitions

Christopher Marquis, Sinyi Professor of Chinese Management at Cambridge Judge Business School and author of Mao and Markets: The Communist Roots of Chinese Enterprise, joins The Realignment to discuss the degree to which China's economic success is rooted in communism, the throughline between the leadership of Mao Zedong and Xi Jinping, and what the West's traditional understanding of Deng Xiaoping's economic and political opening in the 1970s gets wrong.
