Marx in a time of superpower trade wars

Marx was even invoked as a champion of globalisation. Xi gave an apparent dig at the Trump trade delegation across town.

“Countries are more connected and interdependent to each other than ever before. An integrated world is there. Whoever rejects the world, the world will reject them,” said Xi.

Xi said the world had undergone earth-shaking changes since the Communist Manifesto was published 170 years ago, but its general principles were “entirely correct”.

The speech reinforced that China has no intention of following western democratic reforms.

China faced “unprecedented heavy tasks of reform” and challenges and risks in governance, Xi said, but it had to use Marxism to solve its problems.
