Taking Strategic Initiative to Prevent and Defuse Major Risks


Melanie Hart, Jordan Link, and Ngor Luong of the Center for American Progress translate and discuss Chinese Central Political and Legal Affairs Commission Secretary-General Chen Yixin’s effort to explain President Xi Jinping’s “ten fundamental insights” on “preventing and resolving major risks”. Yixin considers black swan events and risk interactions, noting that “All categories of risk are becoming increasingly mobile, and the interconnectedness [among them] is strengthening.”
