Laurie Taylor from BBC Radio 4, talks to Yuen Yuen Ang, Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Michigan, and our very own David Tyfield. Together, they examine the prospects for an alternative global power regime, and discuss David’s new book, “Liberalism 2.0 and the Rise of China”.
‘How China will develop in the future?’
‘Will China save the world?’
“So long as we recognise that it would have to change China and the world in the process, and by thinking about what we mean by save the world we’re not expecting some royal road to some glorious utopia but itself a very turbulent and on-going process.” – David Tyfield.
“The rise of China is actually going to be instrumental in the transformation away from neo-liberalism to a new global regime which I’m calling liberalism 2.0.” -David Tyfield.
“[t]here are 200 million electric two wheelers on China’s roads which are overwhelmingly, almost entirely in fact, Chinese brands. So these are precisely an example of the improvisatory, experimental, bottom-up forms of innovations. […] These are the disruptors.” -David Tyfield
