Author and Hudson Institute senior research fellow Bruno Maçães joins Eric and Cobus to discuss the key drivers of China's hugely ambitious Belt and Road Initiative that he outlined in his recent book, "Belt and Road: A Chinese World Order." He also explains why he thinks the U.S. has good reason to worry that its time as the global hegemonic power may indeed be coming to an end.


How do you describe the Belt and Road Initiative? Do you agree with Bruno that it's something that threatens the Western-run rules-based order? Or do you think that's overstating and BRI is a lot of hype but really too uncoordinated to be of much concern?
