Cold War II: Niall Ferguson on The Emerging Conflict With China
Niall Ferguson is the Milbank Family Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution and the author of numerous books, including Doom: The Politics of Catastrophe and Kissinger, 1923–1968: The Idealist. In this conversation, we cover the conflict over Taiwan: why it’s a cold war, when it started, how to avoid allowing it to become a hot war, and how to de-escalate and even win it. Along the way, Ferguson discusses the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the role of the United States and Western Europe in both conflicts, and how we can avoid once again living under the threat of nuclear war as we did in Cold War I.

Not word from the “Big Guy” Biden if he thinks we are in Cold War 2.0.
Great interview as usual Peter. Always enjoy hearing from Professor Ferguson. Can we out innovate China and others if we’re dragged down by political correctness – that’s my current concern.
