Will gathering headwinds in China force the Asian superpower into recession — and could a Chinese downturn snowball into a global slowdown? Tony Nash, founder of the AI platform Complete Intelligence, explores the themes behind China's slowing growth and weakening demography. The former head of Global Research for The Economist Intelligence Unit unpacks his outlook for Hong Kong's diminished role in China's future — and explores the broader question of whether frictions inside China's social contract could imperil the expansive vision of an 'Asian Century' to come.
