Law’s Juscelino Colares talks about China’s economy, compares past one to Soviet-style

International Business TimesJuscelino Colares, the Schott-van den Eynden Professor of Law, noted that China isn’t returning to a Soviet-style economy, but President Xi Jinping is engaged in a zero-sum game, similar to that of Soviet leaders. “Recent events (e.g., the opaqueness regarding the pandemic’s origins, the war in Ukraine, and China’s non-commitment to greenhouse commitments) and repeated threats to Taiwan appear to have spooked even the most dovish U.S. administration in recent memory,” Colares said.
