In this week’s Think Tech broadcast, Grassroot President Keli’i Akina and Policy Director Malia Hill join host Jay Fidell for the second week of Dr. Akina’s China trip. With China looking to replicate the success of Hong Kong on the mainland, the conversation naturally turns to the efficacy of top-down capitalism and what the Chinese economic experiment can teach us about liberty, labor, and the free market. Teaching and learning are a consistent theme in this episode, as Dr. Akina explains what we hope to gain from the China trip, what the people he has met have had to say about competition and capitalism, and what we in Hawaii can take away from this trip.
