Palladium Podcast 63: Chinese High Modernity

Yiran Ding/Shanghai

Wolf Tivy and Ash Milton discuss China’s embrace of high modernity. Since the early 20th century, America has been the core of industrial civilization. Now, China is its most powerful rising periphery. But while China is currently ascending, it is already reaching important inflection points, like demographic stagnation and uncertain political succession. Does its rebirth contain the beginnings of a new stagnation? Additionally, the team discusses why China seems to act as a proxy for questions about the nature of our own society.
