The Kyle Bass Interviews: The Billionaire Chinese Dissident

Featuring Miles Kwok

Kyle Bass sits down with infamous Chinese businessman Guo Wengui, also known as known as “Miles Kwok,” to hear a series of shocking accusations and predictions revolving around the Chinese government. Kwok provides his perception of the backstory behind several recent high-profile news items, and touches on the Chinese government’s management of the economy. He also unfurls an alarming forecast about Alibaba co-founder Jack Ma. Filmed on October 5, 2018 at an undisclosed location.

    Great interview and very bold of RV to host this interview. The death of the HNA chairman was highly suspicious - I remember thinking this before listening to any 'conspiracy theories'. The series of events that China was imposing on the company to delever in the lead up to his death was very telling. His death is not a coincidence. Very fishy.

    Was flying to New York when I viewed this video. Couldn't help myself but take a walk past the Bank of China building to go and see if "all the windows is blocked". Looked all normal to me, no shutters or closed blinds(and this was a clear morning strong early day sun right onto the building). Either all you say is true or everything else is called into question.

    Putting this interview out lets us make up our own minds
    Kwok may be over exaggerating some information but it gets our attention
    Now we are responsible to find out for ourselves
    The parallels between China's Social Credit system and what Social media is implementing are interesting to say the least
    Forcing churches to replace the cross with a photo of emperor Li, says a lot about who these leaders are

    Great interview and it's good to see RV have the balls to show this. Nothing about the CCP really surprises me. When you look at the 20th century and the crime against humanity that these extreme left wing ideologies (communism) have done to innocent people then nothing that the CCP does surprises me. The entire history of the CCP is all about suppressing and controlling people. After traveling to a lot of these ex communist countries, like Russia, Eastern Europe, China, Cambodia and Vietnam, I've seen first hand the effects of what these evil left wing dictators have done to the people, under the name of socialism. Even today the people are still scared to talk about their government. It's very rare to see someone speak against these dictator governments as it normally ends in one way. Whether you believe Miles or not he has very big balls to say this kind of stuff. This is really only the tip of the iceberg with what really goes on in China.
    One question to ask yourself. Why do the rich, educated, elite Chinese go to all sorts of length to get their money out of China? If China is such a great investment then why don't they leave their money in China? Why are these western companies all trying to invest their money into China and calling foul play once they've been ripped off. Do you think the elite Chinese who grew up in China know something that the western's don't?
    As Miles said, westerners are naive and too trusting and if they are shocked by what has been said in this interview then maybe take your next holiday to some of these ex communist countries and talk to the people and read up on the history, Cambodia is a good place to start and spend some time walking around the killing fields.
    These Kyle Bass interview are great and please keep them coming.

    Reminds me of the Bill Browder interview which turned out to be misleading and personal/political cold war rhetoric. Doubt creeps in for me anytime someone is demonizing another and Miles Kwok was demonizing China. I really like Kyle. But..... we know that Kyle acts as an advisor to the White House in regard to China and we know that Kyle has a thesis in regard to the RMB. We know that the Whitehouse has long been engaged in strategy and behind closed door war games against China and a long time strategy to continue USD hegemony that affects many countries and curriencies negatively. I think what is closer to the truth is that countries such as China and Russia are not looking to ruin the US and the USD but rather would like to be part of a multi-polar world and a global economy that includes them. On the other hand the US is engaged in demonizing countries such as Russia and China to continue it's USD hegemony.

    That should have read China has occupied "12000 square miles of Indian territory illegally and it slowly creeping into India". Which country does territorial expansion in this day and age? Well China is!! That is the truth!

    Few people in the West know that China has occupied 12000 square miles of Indian territory and they are creeping in further into India. They do not respect treaties made between their neighboring countries and make up their own maps to claim territories. So this is not surprising to me at all. Many countries including Vietnam are saying that China considers "south china sea" and East china sea as its own territory because it has the name China next to the sea.
    The question is how do you implement treaties and international laws when it comes to China? Nobody has ever challenged them and they have become emboldened as years went by.

    This is how i thought western democraties were operating so no surprise :). more seriously this is all plausible although the scale of the corruption described seems too large to have been sustained for so long. it is good that our governments are waking up to these hard facts but they have been complicite for so long by creating a labour/capital arbitrage through corporate globalization that China alone cannot be blamed. Deglobalization is underway and it will be inflationary.

    Sociopaths the world over should eat a hand full of mushrooms so they can at least have a chance to be connected to the world that they live on. Change your perspective and forget your old contexts so that you can embrace peace and love and leave your addictions to amphetamines and power behind. RealVision is so cool because it is telling us a story about the current fixations of the human species. If we destroy our planet, ecology and one another will we feel remorse? Money is perhaps the most important communication tool in existence today and large players ability to distort the information that money conveys is preventing us from washing away the unproductive allocations of resources. Perhaps new money will repair this issue. The imposition of honesty is the value of gold, crypto and markets! Ooga chaca!

    Fascinating. It confirms suspicions probably most of us had all along. I couldnt help but picture the corollary to that conversation. Somewhere in China, in an airplane hangar, a Chinese Kyle Bass, interviewing some US insider and getting the inside spiel on the US "Mafia families" and financial dirty tricks. Now obviously we are more transparent and such...but...there certainly is some overlap. Human nature is the same worldwide.

    I respect Bass and enjoyed Kwok. The message to me is that Americans have been and are truly naive as to China's intentions vis a vis the U.S. My view has been and is, is that China is ruthless and has a desire to return to being the principal global power. The U.S. has evidenced an inability to plan and execute. I do not view Kwok as sensationalist, though I can see how some view him to be just that. My sense is that he has been prescient about Ma and others, that he is friendly with some senior Private/Public Senior individuals who were targeted and will be targeted, and that he is acting selflessly in attempting to educate us on the threats we face from China. I value the Real Vision forum and hope that the forum continues to provide perspectives that cut across investments, and geopolitics. Global macro investing relies in part, on an understanding of that which is political and cultural. Good job and good perspective RV.

    As an Asian American, I have been painfully ignorant of the inner workings of China and the CCP.
    Mr. Kwok is clearly an educated man but I do wish his English was better as that would make his message more meaningful.

    It is a terrible signal for China and the rest of the world if what he is saying about Jack Ma and Alibaba is true. I am sure I was not the only one who was a bit surprised at Jack Ma's announcement

    The only question is how the world/ US let the communism continue in China for so long. Why we have started trading full blown with these despicable commies who have no respect for the human life let along the international rule based order. Why we have let them invited into the WTO and now they have SDRs as well. No body challenged this until Trump comes along.

    He is right about the simple mindedness of America. These countries are run by the Mafia. They call them selves the Communist party, or the Revolutionary party, or what ever, but they are essentially the modern mafia. Can you imagine living in country run by a mafia? The best hope is that the mafia members start infighting over the declining pie. time will tell. Thank you RV. This is worth the price of admission.

    Let me elaborate Mr. Kwok’s “Blue Gold Yellow Plan” , a tool to leverage against you. Blue, hacking your personal information, gold: money to coerce you, Yellow, sex. Let me explain from my China experiences. Many of the hotels in China had 1 or 2 hotel rooms accessible by Police or local government. These rooms have full surveillance equipments. If you are over 50 with 3 tiny hair on top, big belly, a 20 yrs old girl showing interest and would like to follow back to your hotel room. Don’t think you are attractive , you are just targeted. Many Universtiy professors fell for that.

    I have always wondered what was the motivation for Nixon going to open China in the first place? Of course you will hear the argument of globalization leading to a softening of the communist regime thorough economic inter-dependence. I don't buy that. I am very curious because It seems that the the economic dog, when it really matters, gets wagged by the geo-political/military/security tail. But I have nothing to back that up.

    A controversial interview.
    My interpretation of the agendas of each:
    I suspect Mr Kwok does have some insight into how things work in China and he is not particularly happy for whatever reason and sought refuge in the US and wishes to maintain his status in the US to avoid his enemies in China.
    Mr Bass is attempting to look behind the Chinese curtain to support his ‘short the RMB’ trade.

    The unsubstantiated claims by Mr Kwok are just that. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle but it doesn’t really matter because it is their system. The US also has some serious issues.

    At one point in the interview Mr Bass stated ‘I think you are right because you agree with me…’ I don’t know if Mr Bass was saying this in jest but I question the value of Mr Kwok’s input regarding the short RMB trade. I don’t disagree with Mr Bass’s thesis but question usefulness of this piece because of the emotional content. However, the YEN short trade seemed like a slam dunk but I guess its about timing.

    My observation is that the US primacy (unipolar world) is dwindling. It is losing ground on Brzezinki’s Grand Chessboard. You have ‘Art of the Deal’ vs ‘Tzun Tzu’. You have short term objectives (quarterly reports, US election cycles) vs long term planning. Both have debt issues… the Chinese invented paper money.
    I re-watched the Malmgren interview which I find to be much more useful.
    As mentioned, I don’t disagree with Mr Bass’s thesis but my play for now is long $US.
    Thanks RV

    Mr. Guo has a worthwhile message and his comments about the economy and the banking system have a lot of merits, but he lost me long before this interview was aired. If you think this is outlandish, you should tune in to his youtube monologues (in Chinese though). He is undermining his own messages with his exaggeration and too-out-there predictions and comments. His predictions about millions of people on the street of Beijing did not turn into reality. Sometimes I feel the naïve ones also include him. What he missed about China is the lack of internal desire for revolutionary change. I don’t know if the economy will worsen enough to tip the scale, but it certainly was not there before. Regarding his comments about China’ grand strategy, is that even a secret? Of course China wants to see a weakened US, wants to challenge dollar’s status, just as US wants a weakened China, a potential challenger to her supremacy, and wants to defend dollar’s rule. What I’m most curious is about his prediction of the party’s downfall in two years. Well, that is serious, every single person here will feel the impact one way or another.

    Not much of what Mr. Kwok said surprised me frankly and Most if not all know of those who have lived under oppressive regimes, whether communist or dictators know this. Indeed those regimes work as described by Mr. Kwok. Having said that, I wonder why now are powerful members of the CCP undoing their profitable partnerships with their protégés such as Ma, Mr. Kwok and the Chairman of the insurance company assassinated in Provence? Have the business moguls overstepped their boundaries? Have they cheated their “partners” on their share of the loot? What has changed? That’s the million dollar question in my mind. Thank you Kyle, Mr. Kwok and RVTV!

    Good interview and interesting, although difficult to follow at times. It would be helpful if RealVision could use this material for another piece that goes into greater depth with additional information about the people and events named. In the same piece, RV could clarify and or expand on the points that Guo Wengui made during the interview. Sounds like China and Russia have more similarities than I realised with regards to who controls the wealth and how they acquire it. Funny that China gets away with state sanctioned murders but Saudi Arabia doesn't.

    This was an absolutely fantastic interview. It’s hard to prove whether the implicit allegations made by Mr Wengui are in fact true, but from my experience, they all seem very plausible. Reading the polarizing comments below – and I urge all viewers to do so, for a broader opinionated view, I felt compelled to offer my own. Growing up in a communist country, one my family and I had to flee from, such allegations are not surprising. I urge all the Americans (and other nationalities), who were fortunate enough to be born in a democracy, and never personally experienced living under such communist regimes, to open their minds and educate themselves. Communist states: Under such conditions human principles do not change, and it’s really no different this time with China.

    I want to register a very strange occurrence twice. I watched this video twice on my iPhone and each time I received a call from Washington DC. Each time a voice mail was left which was in Chinese. I have no idea what the message was. The phone number is 202-609-2917. This is an eerie coincidence because I have never received this sort of spam before.

    RV- I want to just point out there is a big difference between this and great expose pieces like that done the Guardian about Cambrige Analytica that had PROOF. These are wild claims that further fuel a growing dysfunctional US-China relationship.

    Media is a powerful thing and there needs to be some sort of proof. Everything he says may be true but what if they arent true? What is the cost???

    I will be brief: this interview boils down to one of two treatments: 1) if this is false, it was an entertaining and interesting perspective with an agenda; 2) if this is true, it is the most important video RV has ever done, bar none, by virtue of the economic, geo-strategic and market impact and outcomes that likely follow if conclusions transpire.

    I will make something very simple for anyone who was wondering whether this is a credible videos, it doesn't matter if the video is 100% true or 0% true. The only thing to determine is the weighing the bet of either.

    1. Price seems to agree, sitting right near the high of 7.
    2. China NEEDS a weaker currency.
    3. Fed tightening policy.

    Getting in front of this cocktail is only possible with small bets, tight stops, and options. The trade, long USD has a huge upside skew because of the possibility of deval, a long term break of 7 in general is a very long term breakout, and finally the underlying CB forces. Bet it either way you like, but fading long term breakouts with this much risk of vol is absolutely the antithesis of anything I would do.

    As an investor, my biggest takeaway is that he is talking to Bannon, which means it is going to Trump. And while the claims in the interview can not be substaniated and many appear to be exaggerated, Trump drives his foreign policy off this type of information. Thus, his economic war with China may be greater than any of us imagined leading to higher tariffs on January 1st and creating unwanted disruption in the global supply chain. This will impact markets negatively going forward.

    Hey RV does this clown have the same despicable handlers as Bill Browder? Skeptical of who this guy really works for. You like to claim how RV is on the cutting edge of this and that. Then do what you want to claim to be in its entirety. Terribly disappointed in RV that you didn’t give the total backstory to who Bill Browder really is. Shame on you RV and that’s why I’m very skeptical on this clown’s true motives and wondering who he really works for. Did you truly do your due diligence on this guy and Browder? Like who really financed these turds would be a good place to start.

Is there personal interest in his interviews? About Wang Qisan? One can cross check his judgement with that of Ray Dalio who talked about Ray's meetings with Wang in his book The Principles.

    It’s a pity this interview was not held in Chinese with English translation . I think that 90% of info was lost because of poor english. We could have made so much more. Still this 10% was amazing, especially about the strange death in Provence and the disappearance of the France based Interpol chief. Comments about RMB printing and non convertibility strengthened my belief that the Chinese created a monetary anchor in RMB by manipulating gold price. By maintaining an artificially low price of gold, and encouraging the ownership of gold by their population, the Chinese can hide the loss of purchasing power of the RMB due to money printing . I think the US is passive on this so far, because the Chinese got themselves into a trap. Whenever the US decides to push the price of gold higher they can create an hyperinflation in China and defeat their opponent..

    Could he ever have become rich, connected and with insider information of how power operates in China, without part taking in the system. So of course he is tainted, but does that mean one should not believe the information he is providing. Of course be cynical, but there are ways to come to conclusion that amongst some amount of hyperbole there is also fair bit of truth.
    I can believe the actress taking a cut of the loans she could facilitate, because I have first hand knowledge of that happening with State run banks in India 20-25 years ago (the cut used to be between 5-10% dependent on size of loan), the reason they are saddled with NPL's now.
    Arbitrary arrests on trumped up charges, is easily believable in a country that has no independent judiciary. And happens pretty regularly in countries referred to as emerging markets. Extra judicial killings happen even in a working democracy like India for non-powerful or non-connected , so absolutely believable that this happens in China where CCP has absolute control.
    It is only through absolute control that China can continue the smoke and mirrors effect that is the Chinese economic miracle and financial world, without imploding into hyper-inflation. Else every developing country could run the printing presses and produce the same economic miracle!

But it seems to add fuel to the points made in the discussion between Grant and Kyle, so maybe that is why this was aired. But still - to what purpose?

    My conclusion was they both must have made enemies with the CPC? They must have fallen to disgrace with someone very powerful.
    I Never owned a Chinese stock behause i don‘t Trust the System at all!

    Last thought, since Miles is in the US, is he working with the CIA? Will he be the next to „disappear? If he does we all know there was something about his Stories.

    It’s about time for the world to wake up and see the CCP for what it really is. We all enjoy our cheap stuff from China and it has blinded us. The CCP is no better than Putin’s regime or the Soviet regimes before him. They use the same playbook and they have had the time of their lives growing their economy and power unchecked.
    I see the CCP as the evil power that won. They’ve been in control for almost 70 years now, so we take it for granted. But this is a dangerous organization with values directly opposed to the west. If we wish to keep our values and way of life in the west, we need to fight parties like the CCP. Not trade with them and look the other way as they rob us blind and run their country like George Orwell’s 1984 dystopia. No wonder the book is banned in China.
    Watch Niall Ferguson’s series on modern Chinese history (Triumph and Turmoil) if you don’t already know who these people are and what they come from (the CCP leadership). It’s also instructive to watch the Icarus documentary about Russian olympic cheating to gain insight on the thought process and methods of this type of regime.
    They have benefited tremendously from Western naivety. It has to stop.

    Wow - let's make it simple -- what Kwok says makes sense when you look at world from right vantge point. How did China Rise from the ashes in early 1970's??? Hmm? Kissinger (Globalist David Rockefeller protege) - totally obvious bad US trade deals that NO doubt hurt US worker and corporations??? What country makes such bad deals- unless you make them because they are an offer you cant refuse. Where is the gold? Look at gold flow west to east -- this was all a globalist set up for the big reset we all know is coming and US has refused to do audit of gold reserves in Fort Knox since 1950's. Next, China is printing money at such an extent it is unfathomable and China has a totally FAKE internal banking system (which Kyle knows is a fact) and what are they doing with this fake system - Oh yeah, LOL One belt One road =Bullshit. Look at Sri Lanka ports, it is the IMF all over again, Debt from nothing and I own you. Bigger picture Rockefeller Bankers Globalist Agenda is the question, these jokers have been in China and supported Mao pre- revolution and post revolution -- Kissinger is a criminal and Trump is actually supporting USA and national sovereignty - like Kyle says. I hope the world wakes up before this all turns on them. I agree with Kwok, China is more evil than most can even imagine. Remember CCP is Mao's party and they murdered 45 million of their own country men. Dont even get me started on David Rockefeller quotes - and there are many about globalist agenda (Rockefeller can't shut his own mouth, has complete contempt for ordinary people and their rights). Raoul you started what was suppose to be a financial channel and what has happened is you have gone down the rabbit hole by asking questions -- thank you for taking us all with you. I tell my students this all the time -- Question Everything and Trust NOBODY. I play golf with an ex - NY FED Banker and she tells me that I have the most cynical mind of anyone she has ever met. But like she also says Nobody she knows asks any questions like I do. And then we both laugh and hit the ball. (Mind you she has given me stock tips on surveillance and AI corporations and I have told her about bitcoin -which of course she sold at the top at 20K - its like you can't make this shit up.

    I enjoyed the interview so thanks RV. At first I was shocked like most people but then after doing some very brief reading about Mr Kwok (or whetever his name is) I tend to think this is full of half and partial truths.

    Some of it maybe true but doesn't seem much worse than MBS and the Saudis who we in the West are happy to rub shoulders with.

    As to the grand strategy of derailing the USD as reserve currency I think the current administration is doing a fine job without Chinese help.

    Not sure if that was an American lapel badge that KYle was wearing but if it was imho they should always come with a propaganda warning.

    Most westerners know little about Miles Kwok and believed fake news in the media.
    He was born as one of eight boys in a very poor family, dropped out of school at 13 and started working. He is completely a self-made billionaire. At age 19, his only younger brother was killed by police, which completely changed his life. His initial drive was to be rich and make a private revenge, but later on, he realized that his misfortune was shared by all other Chinese people, rich or poor, who are ruled by the CCP in a society without democracy, without freedom of media, and without rule of law. That's when he started a long-term plan to accumulate fortune, build up connections with all important people, to prepare for this day that he can use all his resources to nail the CCP to coffin!

    Miles Kwok started to reveal the secrets of high-rank Chinese officials and the CCP since Jan 2017. At first, even Chinese were totally shocked! and many thought what he said was insane! Over time, people started to realize, it wasn't him that was crazy, it was the people who got brainwashed by the CCP over the decades and too naive to have believe the CCP!
    After almost two years of brave revelation, most of what Miles had said turned out to be true, be it HNA, be it Wang Qishan, be it Fan Bingbing... Americans have also woken up, the CCP is not only building a Third Reich within the country, but also seeking a global dominance through BYG, though belt-road initiative, and though stealing technology. We've all got to rise and stop them!

    I move against the crowd here (in this instance, RV’s comments section): If you do some digging this guy has a very poor and well known, corrupt reputation in China/East Asia region. He left because of China’s increasing enforcement of anti corruption as Xi Jinping stepped into the government role.

    Respectfully, Kyle is openly falling prey to his own politically charged anti-China/CCP biases. The key thing I’ve learned from Kyle’s recent video series is that all investors/traders - despite the size of their AUM - fall prey to their hubris and human biases.

    Like Kyle’s misrepresented comment with respect to a Chinese minority of Ugyhers in the last video of “1 million Chinese in internment camps”. China does a lot more to respect harmony between religions than many countries and you will see this if you actually visit or better yet, live in China. Do some real digging from Asian sources and you may learn acts of terrorism in China has been concentrated by this Chinese minority group, in a specific region of China.

    I am neither “pro” or “anti” CCP. Nor am I pro or anti democracy. The pro/anti dichotomy is a very westernised concept itself. I just care for what works. There is a lot of politically charged conjecture in Kyle’s recent video series and this needs to be taken into context whilst watching them.

    Knowing the truth about any country run with absolute power is way above my pay grade. While listening I was thinking of all the other powerful dictators acting in a similar way, regardless of hypothetical government type. We have people killed in the UK by foreign spies, we have journalist killed in Turkey, we have citizens killed in and out of North Korea, citizens poisoned in Syria, active terrorist in Europe and the US both home-grown and imported. The list goes on and on. Even worse when these dictators fall, the country is often thrown into total chaos like Yugoslavia and many parts of Africa. The only controls on these powers are a deep-seated rule of law and transparency. These controls on absolute power are also under constant attack. Nuff said. DLS

    I think it could have been made a bit more clear that Guo Wengui is a thug and Party underworld figure who ran funded the security apparatus, under their protection, working hand in glove with them, and was almost certainly an MSS asset himself. The game he played was that he'd work with security officials to take out business opponents, clean up making billions, and use that money as a secret slush fund to pay for security work. Like the off-the-books banker for his security bosses. He is continuing to play political games here. Given his history of lying his head off, it's unclear that RV should have given him this platform. Interesting anyway. But it would have been a bit more appropriate to first inject some realism into this so we know who we're actually listening to. This is not just some businessman who has gone rogue and is now fighting for democracy. That claim couldn't be further from the truth.

    The implications are both, so grandiose and machevelain (that is to say, what I believe to be a deeply underappreciated sino-psychotic capability of megalomania which can not be fully appreciated by the unread, casual, or timid Western mind) as to set to quivering even the stoutest soul. Most will retreat into disbelief, scorn, disdain or outright neglect of the subject matter so as not to be forced to confront not only the immediate, but the long term, global ramifications. Evidence be damned.

    Grant,

    Please consider assessing your IT security and physical security infrastructure and methodologies for you, your family, your employees, and your business, in an effort to identify potential weaknesses, as well as, to educate those around you in proper self defense, as I am quite confident that releasing information such as this (which I am very grateful and thankful for) may expose you and those around you to potential future risks. I am certainly not requesting this to facilitate fear, as often times, the smallest of measures can provide exponential benefits in terms of safety, but rather, it is because I do support you and RealVision leadership in making available conversations like this, and the corresponding exposure that this venue provides, that I position these respectful suggestions in an effort to further your well being and the continuation of the great work that you and your RealVision team is accomplishing.

    Regards,
    John

    What Miles said in this interview about how things are done in China is very similar to what I heard in an off-the-record conversation with an entrepreneur from mainland China, (who says he marched at Tienanmen and then moved to the US), who was at a crypto currency conference I went to this year. The guy told me that the large Chinese technology companies run themselves basically like drug cartels/mafias/crime syndicates in mainland China. If they see a tiny company or IP in China they like they make the Chinese entrepreneur an "offer they can't refuse." And apparently the entrepreneur has 48 hours to take a large check, give away his company and his ideas or his or her family will never find their body. The guy I spoke to said he had 2 friends who didn't take the money and sure enough both of his former friends were never seen or heard from ever again 48 hours later. No body to bury at a funeral...

    Awesome interview! But the risk factor is off the scale!
    I can only echo what some others have previous said - China does not take kindly to anything seen as negative towards them. In my country a lady who published a damning report last year got her laptops and phone stolen, and a 'visit' from the 'you must be nice to China' police. This is real and it happens all the time. Raoul, Grant, Kyle - you will need to take great care in the future, Chinese agents are very patient and everywhere!

    I really tried to focus on sorting out potential unknown facts from speculation (or unverifiable insider anecdotes) ... I gave up when he sent his people...

    This was a fascinating interview but I am perplexed as to why he would agree to this interview if the stakes were this high. you would think that he would make himself vanish in America and never be heard from again. The only rationale I can surmise is he would give up his life if it meant the end of the corrupt regime in China. Did Kyle get the movie rights?

    Highly compelling tales of the Communist Party underworld aside, isn't the most important part of this interview Kyle/Guo's repeated assertion that 45% of all loans in China are bad? That statistic seems absurd. But if even half true, the implication is surely that global depression is at our doorstep.

    He was once a member of the so called "vested interest" he hated so much. He never talked about that he earned billions the same way as the vested interest did. He probably heard something and knew something from his circle. By no means he is an expert on this subject. Of course, the enemy's enemy is friend. On China issue, Michael Pettis is a way much better candidate.

    Equal time please for the heroic American dissident Eric Snowden to diss USA. Every single comprehensive survey and poll since 2013 has shown that most people around the world regard USA as the world's biggest threat to peace and humanity (per BBC, Pew Research, Gallup, Der Spiegel, NY Post,...). Except in USA where currently most pick Iran, and in India where most pick Pakistan (clearly the EU and especially Germany strongly disagree with the Americans' view of Iran given the EU's scathing objections to US sanctions of Iran and Europe's order to all organizations operating in Europe to defy US sanctions of Iran or be legally liable in European court for consequential damages).

    My intuition tells me not to trust him. The hesitation of condemning the LEADER (Xi) of the ccp while simultaneously criticizing every other high ranking official is a huge red flag.

    If he is truly is "in fear for his life" it makes no sense to withhold evidence corroborating his story for a future press release. He suggests that he has recordings of high ranking ccp threatening/blackmailing him that is being withheld, that would substantially improve his credibility. Obviously there's more to the story but for someone in constant fear he has a suprising lack of humility. The tip toeing of ccp only criticism (not xi) seems like theres an outcome he believes in that he is not being fully authentic about, which makes it more likely that as most ppl he speaking in half truths and half lies for his own benefit.

    When you combine this expose with an analysis of the ownership structure of some of the largest listed Chinese companies, it's enough to put you off investing in China altogether. Unfortunately, China represents 30% of the MSCI EM index, so hard to avoid unless you find an active manager with insights like this.

Jack Ma also disappeared suddenly. CCP are diabolical master illusionists & a MAFIA indeed. I pray for Trump to keep squeezing China on trade in order to save our IP & the people of China.

    A few days ago China's head representative to Macao, Zheng Xiaosong apparently killed himself after falling out of his residential building and its been reported that he was suffering from depression. He was probably murdered the same way the HNA chairman was.

    Miles is quite right that the CCP is going after entrepreneurs. Billionaires are being kidnapped and 'questioned' all too frequently and even from Hong Kong too.

    I seriously worry for Miles Kwok's life.

    When you listen to a person like him, better ask a few questions before you think of trust. Like ,
    What is his background?
    How did he get rich?
    How does his money transferred out China?
    Who he connects with? Is he clean?
    What is his purpose to make all these noises? Since when?
    Money laundering from China is public secret. He himself probably is one of those bad guys. Most probably is a wolf crying.
    One thing for sure, he is not for the Chinese people’s benefits.

    Many in the western world will find some things that were said hard to believe. But if you spend five years in a third world country, you will find that this is pretty much the way of life. But what is different here is that the party goes after the nation's best entrepreneurs, which makes it the outlier. Those who create value and offer direct stability to the rulers as a consequence usually rise to the top of the food chain; they don't get "disappeared" or "retired". That is a strategic error.

    A bombshell interview by Kyle. More like Vice News than RealVision (in an undisclosed location with a Gulfstream jet and bulletproof Mercedes in the backdrop!). Wildly entertaining to hear the Chinese billionaire class spilling the beans on each other. Tales of hookers ("sexy"), blackmail, murder, theft, and on and on. All with one intention...for the billionaire communist party elite steal as much money as they can and get themselves out of China before the nation is bled dry. Based on this interview, can't imagine there would be a better reality show than the Communist Party Hunger Games. As far as I can tell, the only guy winning so far is Miles Kwok (according to him, even Jack Ma will be killed or jailed within the next year). In the famous words of the Wayans brothers, "Two Thumbs Up in a Circle!".

    History may not repeat BUT "it does rhyme"... Germany's build up to WWII was financed by the Western World. We were hopeful they would rebuild from WWI, be a consumer of goods and be a fine European neighbor; obviously, the West was wrong and great price was paid. Hopefully, nothing between China and the rest of the world will ever go "Kenetic" but its power and capability was made possible by the Western World; period. We had great hope for something that would look more democratic and act according to "rule of law" but it didn't happen. Appears we will get to live the curse of "May you live in interesting times"... Best of luck to ALL of us. Thanks RV & Kyle.

    Entertaining to be sure. But worthy of a RealVision interview? I think not. There is no way of discerning whether anything the interviewee said is true. And if the reasoning is, we feel we need to put it out there for the viewer to decide for himself, then I suppose anything goes. It seems the real message is, we'll post an interview of any billionaire who supports the narrative of one of our other favorite billionaires. RealVision has to have some standard other than the balance sheet of the interviewee.

    Thank you RV. What Mr. Kwok shares is really no great surprise. The depth of deceit and subterfuge exercised by totalitarian regimes is well documented, as is the sheer volume of murder, abuse and torture. Read Alexander Solzhenitsyn's "Warning the the West" to get a sense for the Kafkaesque insanity of daily life in the former USSR, and then imagine daily life in China with its mandatory social media scoring system. Care to ruin your day? Poke around a bit on what "they" did/do to political prisoners - in N. Korea, in China (especially under Mao), in the USSR... Talk to somebody who managed to flee Vietnam, or who lived under communism in eastern Europe. Find somebody that grew up in Hong Kong and get his perspective. Then compare that to what somebody with family in mainland China will generally say about the CCP. You'll likely find that the HK expat is far more forthcoming than the mainlander, because the mainlander "knows" his family is not safe should he speak out of turn - even to a white US citizen on US soil. Communism is always totalitarianism and it is never benign. It is ALWAYS evil. It always (unless on a small Pennsylvania farm) leads to misery. And God willing, it will continue to fail.
