From stiffening international #investors first in the #tech sector and now in #realestate (Evergrande, anyone?) to crackdowns on gaming and the toxic rhetorics aimed at rivals, #China presents itself in a worrying state. It all smells an awful lot like #siegementality.
More importantly, pundits have been saying that #Beijing is playing the long game and that it has a strict plan all the time. With #AUKUS, time has started to run against China's #expansionism in the #FarEast. What's next?
Speaking of #demographics: The one-child policy enforced by the #CCP for a long time has led to a society that is getting out of balance increasingly: Not enough young working people to support all the pensioners. And seen #China's shrinking #population, the housing bubble is here to stay. Add #tangping aka the #lyingflat movement to the mix, and the dream of continuous high #GDP growth rates becomes an illusion.
Keep in mind that economic growth legitimizes the regime in #Beijing.
