This week we check in on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) negotiations and then explore how China’s leaders make economic policy. CSIS Scholl Chair Scott Miller joins to assess whether Congress will grant trade promotion to the executive branch and discuss certain misconceptions about TPP. Then CSIS Simon Chair Matthew Goodman describes the findings from his team’s two year study to understand how the party leadership governs China’s economic system. We also cover the region’s news and share our One to Watch. Hosted by Colm Quinn. Audio edited by Sam Ellis. Produced by Jeffrey Bean.
