February 2022 marked 30 years since Deng Xiaoping undertook his “Southern Tour” of China to promote pro-capitalist reforms while maintaining the political power of the CCP. In our latest piece, CIO Marwan Younes reviews how the global geopolitical environment leading up to the tour helped shaped these policies and how the ensuing period of dramatic capitalist growth has presented Xi Jinping with a new set of political and economic challenges.
August 2021 marks the 50th anniversary of President Nixon’s announcement to abandon the Bretton Woods system, which was put in place following World War II to help maintain a stable financial order.
