(52:26) Guests: Eric Hyer, professor of political science at BYU Kirk Larsen, professor of Asian History at BYU Rachel Yiu Liu, teaches Chinese at BYU China is the world’s most populous country. Its economy is second only to the United States in terms of GDP. It’s where most of what you’re wearing or touching at this very moment was probably made. And it’s an important political power on the global stage. We take a closer look at China’s place in the pantheon of world powers, how it’s faring and where the nation is headed in the coming decades. “Americans should understand national boundaries are a rather recent phenomenon. Great empires didn’t have clearly defined boundaries. China technically had boundary differences with every one of its neighbors,” says Hyer.
