What China Thinks of the Trade War with Chublicopinion’s Ma Tianjie


Ma Tianjie, founder of the long-running blog Chublicopinion is perhaps the leading English-language chronicler of Chinese public opinion. In this episode, he discusses the official and popular responses to the trade war, ranging from hard right nationalists calling for a return to Maoist autarchy to liberals thanking Trump for pushing China to open its markets.

In his day job, he works for ChinaDialogue, a site that covers Chinese environmental issues.
