Who is the most powerful person in the world? Many would say US President Donald Trump. But the international news publication, The Economist, argues it is actually China's President Xi Jinping. While Trump talks protectionism, Xi is bidding for global leadership on multiple fronts. Among them - a grand infrastructure plan to link large parts of the world economy, an Asia-focused bank to counter the World Bank, China's first overseas military base and a military buildup in the South China Sea.
Analysts say Xi wants to be a transformative leader along the lines of Deng Xiaoping and Mao Zedong. He has eliminated rival power centres in an anti-corruption campaign, and has amassed more personal power than any recent predecessor.
So, what will the latest Communist party congress reveal about China's global aspirations as the US turns inward?

Presenter: James Bays
Guests:
Einar Tangen - Political and Economic Affairs Analyst
Jabin Jacob - Fellow at the Institute of Chinese Studies.
Isaac Stone Fish - Senior fellow at the Asia Society's Center on US- China Relations.

China leaders are millionaires and give breadcrumbs to the people. That’s the way communism works everywhere. Castro in Cuba, Chávez and Maduro in Venezuela, Ortegas in Nicaragua. They manage the companies as shareholders and appropriate the profits.

You are dam wrong! China has largest debt in the world. With the Yuan depreciation, China's debt raised sky high and China's treasury may empty soon. When US and other countries pulled out their industries like Samsung, China will collapse, people will loss jobs, every where in China will riots. Of course, that will be the end of Communist in China. Think about the consequence, you won't fool the people China is the strongest country in the world.

A ship drifting aimlessly with no certain destination, with a sole objective of staying afloat while feeding its few passengers, will always attract indisciplined leadership at the helm, while traveling into murky waters. But, with disciplined and dedicated leadership, even when an entire country is a ship and all its people are its passengers, will try to bring about individual economic independence as the representation of its preservation of national independence. Chaos within Anarchy is the only expected outcome of self expression without Individual Economic Independence, and the Education and National Force to be able to preserve that Achievement. China, its Government and its people, and the people that their efforts are befriending, shall be the guiding force for a few centuries to come.

I will very much prefer China to send Trump a million of its citizens to the US för a change. Trump do not no what pain is. He is high up there on his tower, don´t think less of him though, but keep your money for yourselves. It is time.

Xi's father worked for Mao. Xi, is another Mao ! Which is a big nightmare for everyone. Anyone, who do not like his/her freedom to be taken away, must stay away from China. Please do not forget He's Extradition Bill and the bookshop issues, show Xi breaks promises; create fear by kidnapping ... we all value freedom of choice ..

Trump is indisputable the most powerful man . Power is not in the ease to do things or control over others . Trump heads the most reliable and sustainable system . China system is dependent and unreliable. China can go only this far not being transparent, democratic etc

Deliberate distortion of China.
Incurable Romanticist
I don’t know or care about the Chinese president. I care about the American president, and his job is not to be the most powerful man in the world. Seeking that kind of power is completely inappropriate for the leader of a democratic country and a free people. I am thrilled to have a president who tends toward nationalism and protectionism. I want us to be somewhat isolationist, and to tell the globalists to go play someplace else. It has nothing to do with Communism or Capitalism. They are both moth eaten remnants of the last 75 years’ rush to scarcity and moral and physical pollution. I don’t think Trump is perfect. I would not even say that he was all that great. But he’s definitely the only president since Eisenhower it who can do the Math. America has let herself be ruined. The two parties didn’t do it. Poor education, poverty, unchecked immigration and all the other problems we have didn’t do it. I was there the day America was ruined. It was the day Disneyland opened. That was the day American culture became the spawn of a mating between Conspicuous Consumption and Manifest Destiny. All it had needed was a monumentally unreal place to be born. Every fantastic thing must now be given monumental and solid expression. All the technology, all the excesses of sin and virtue from the old romances must become brick and mortar, flesh and blood, science and technology. It has become very easy to go along with the gospel of unstoppable growth and to entirely miss the point of fairytales, frontier stories and the future, that there is no real triumph that is not a moral triumph, and that excess is the dark side of surplus.
