The Coming Collapse of China: Gordon Chang Discusses His Books Ep 86

By Felicia Lin

A note from Talking Taiwan host Felicia Lin:

In 2015, I spoke with Gordon Chang, author and political commentator about his views on China and his books, The Coming Collapse of China, and Nuclear Showdown: North Korea Takes On the World. I recently invited him back on Talking Taiwan, to listen to that episode, check out episode 85.

 

Here’s a little preview of what we talked about in this podcast episode:

 

  • How Gordon went from practicing law to writing The Coming Collapse of China and becoming a political commentator who focuses on news about China
  • How Gordon’s views of China changed after he worked and lived there from 1996-2001
  • How the Chinese Communist Party is going in the wrong direction
  • What kind of reactions Gordon’s book, The Coming Collapse of China received
  • What’s going to happen if China does collapse?
  • China’s predatory trade policies
  • How China’s ban of certain websites and social media platforms delegitimizes the Chinese Communist Party
  • Gordon’s impressions of Taiwan
  • How Hong Kong’s Umbrella Movement was inspired by Taiwan’s Sunflower Movement
  • Dissent in Hong Kong, Tibet and the Uighurs in Xinjiang
  • Gordon’s book Nuclear Showdown: North Korea Takes On the World
  • How Gordon believes that the U.S. should be calling out China on North Korea
  • Gordon’s thoughts on the premise of the film The Interview and the cyber hacks on Sony
  • If Gordon has another book in the works

We recently invited Gordon back to Talking Taiwan to talk about the Hong Kong Security Law in Episode 85.
