8:18 am
a stop to that. while for more, i'm joined by fraser, how we, he's an expert on china. and the also of the book read capitalism. he joins us from singapore. good to have you with us. now, the full title of your book says the fragile financial foundation of china's extra ordinary rise. interesting, there is the world fragile. what role do you think will china's economy play 10 years from now? follow. i think if you're simply looking at the numbers, then the chinese economy is going to be bigger. it's certainly probably going to continue to grow the headline growth rate, so will be lower. it will clearly be a very dominant player on the global economy, but to create it will be how much it will be able to reach our company to be able to reach beyond that shit. sure. so far from that, i would also say, well, they're on the street,
8:19 am
it's very important to remember in china. i think you simply can't separate economics from politics. the party certainly does not do that. she didn't thing see the politics, instrumental it konami. and i think it's very important to remember that because we're coming into much more volatile time, i believe are china and keeping those 2 things together. it's very important. you say that the shooting, paying as he is, the party public is or politics. also instrumental for the economy. i mean, the economy has done pretty well. where does a communist lit country like china fair, better than the democratic economies like germany or the united states? well, frankly, it does not german per capita. are you at the per capita g d p is low old, but it isn't china trying to rise over the years is brought it to basically average rates of global per capita g d p. we must remember as well for the 1st 30 years, a communist party will they largely run their economy into the guy. and there was
8:20 am
a reasonably to pay the economy in the late seventy's. and that was because a communist, all of it being a communist party getting out of the way and letting chinese themselves take control of their life, which is driven. they think phenomenal growth, but ultimately trying to still remain relatively up your country. so there are problems the head, can you name a few? sure, there's a lot of problems ahead. there's a number of them that obviously there's domestic issues of dam or graphic, but there's an aging population. there are relatively low skill attainment rates that help metrics are relatively for, but i think the biggest problem they have is, i think she, she didn't pick geo political overreach, that the geopolitical situation for trying to become a lot worse since he's come to power is basically picked to fight with the us that much of the rest of the developed world. and yet china is highly dependent on the good. well, the rest of the world is for 10 doctors, for oil, for many other commodities to continue the growth. so i don't think the past 40
8:21 am
years, that's all a good idea, but a good stop and model. so think about the next coming years in china. i try to how we, there china expert and the author of the book read capitalism. thank you so much for sharing your insights with us. the united nations, there's the corona, of ours pandemic may come at a cost of over $4.00 trillion dollars to the global tourism sector. report was that slow vaccination rates and developing countries, a leading to mounting economic losses with many of those nations dependent on international visitors. among them is thailand, boat owner, some sac, but lau hasn't earned anything today. in fact, he's had just one customer over the past month, making just $40.00. before the pandemic, he usually made $100.00 a day. his hopes and those many others now rest on a government pilot project. from july, 1st fax,
