What would have made The Modern Scholar better?
This work has a badly hidden message, namely the advocating for the west to go to war with China. The idea seems to be, that sooner or later a war will be both necessary and desirable. The Modern Scholar-series should, as usually is the case, be informative and objective, without a trace of any political agenda. This episode makes one question the truthfulnes of the rest of the series.
What do you think your next listen will be?

What character would you cut from The Modern Scholar?
Peter Navarro's personal opinion.
Any additional comments?
I am a big fan of The Modern Scholar-series, but 'Waking Dragon: The Emerging Chinese Economy and Its Impact on the World' was a huge disappointment.

This is unexpected in what is supposed to be a scholarly discussion or rather education. It turns out to be more of a sermon or a rant or at best propaganda that would be better suited to appear on Fox. It makes Tom Friedman appear fair and balanced. Modern scholar owes it to its listeners to do justice to this topic by making available a more well rounded analysis of China.
