Penn's Jacques deLisle and Wharton's Minyuan Zhao discuss the latest developments in U.S.-China relations.

China’s leadership is urging U.S. President Donald Trump to embrace the “one China” policy on Taiwan and has warned the new administration that a trade war would raise the prices of many goods that Americans depend on, like iPhones. Jacques deLisle, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania Law School and director of Penn’s Center for East Asian Studies, and Minyuan Zhao, a Wharton management professor, recently appeared on the  Knowledge@Wharton show, part of Wharton Business Radio on SiriusXM channel 111, to discuss the latest economic developments in China and Chinese officials’ reactions to what is happening in Washington.
