1 min read

China Tech Investor is a weekly look at China’s tech companies through the lens of investment. Each week, hosts Elliott Zaagman and James Hull go through their watch list of publicly listed tech companies and also interview experts on issues affecting the macroeconomy and the stock prices of China’s tech companies.

Make sure you don’t miss anything. Check out our lineup of China tech podcasts.

In this episode, the guys are joined by Peking University finance professor, Carnegie-Tsinghua fellow, and Beijing indie-rock entrepreneur Michael Pettis for a hard look into the broader issues concerning the economy in China and around the world. Michael explains how outsiders should interpret China’s GDP numbers, the structural imbalances in the Chinese economy, and the underlying dynamics at the heart of the US-China trade war.

James an Elliott also discuss Pinduoduo’s Q3 earnings report, which sent the oft-volatile stock tumbling again, after its surge in recent months.
