In recent appearances on the Expert Series, Chad has explained the significance of the Section 301 investigations as explicitly targeting China and specifically concerning technology transfer. In this episode, Chad is joined by Soumaya Keynes of The Economist to explain the Chinese economic development strategy at the core of the Trump administration’s Section 301 dispute and latest tariff threats. They discuss Beijing’s "Made in China 2025" industrial policy, how technology gets transferred, and the tradeoffs American companies face when doing business in China.
