Gueorguiev discusses digital control, currency in China in Noema Mag

Dimitar Gueorguiev"China’s Surveillance State Will Test the West," written by Dimitar Gueorguiev, was published in Noema Magazine. "Now China is attempting to centralize digital control over financial transactions.," says Gueorguiev, associate professor of political science and author of "Retrofitting Leninism: Participation Without Democracy in China." "The impending introduction of electronic currency will give China’s government unprecedented ability to track individual and institutional transactions. In the not-so-distant future, China’s government will not only have insight into how the people spend scarce resources—it will also have the vision to decide who deserves more and who will settle for less," he says. 01/14/22
