The Macro Moment: China Going The Way Of The Soviet Union

▶️ Watch on 3Speak


Is the CCP going the way of the Soviet Union? They are clamping down on the technology company.

In this video I discuss how we need to watch the actions of the CCP and see if it starts to resemble the Soviet Union.

Talking strictly economically, I don’t know nearly enough about China nor the USSR to say I understand what is going on, but from the little I know it seems that things started to get messy in the USSR because Leonid Brezhnev was a stagnant government and refused to adapt and reform where it was needed. Mikhail Gorbachev on the other hand tried to change too much too fast and ended up accelerating the downfall of the union.

So as far as I can see, and understand, China is still not similar to the USSR. They seem to be doing radical reforms (like you said, I too am not judging if good or bad reforms) but not fast, at least not compared to Gorbachev. So China can still keep growing if they keep adapting at a regular pace, the pace is important because, as professional bureaucrats and technocrats, theoretically they could undo policies and changes that end up being bad for them while keeping the good ones.

PS: although my name is Russian (Igor - Игор) my family is Brazilian and I think I have no Russian relative. Just saying because some Russian friends assume I know their history or politics because of the name hahaha

Hard to keep growing if you are suffering wage increases and become the leading exporter due to low cost production. Also, their are alienating most of their customers, never a good practice.

I read a book called "Why Nations Fail", and it focuses on this aspect of China. The authors believed that the USSR failed due to their lack of freedom, and thus so will the CCP for the same reason. This is a step towards this result I believe.
