China, the country hit earliest by the virus, shows real signs of recovery. Will it be a lone bright spot as other major economies struggle and will China once again be a key driver of global growth? And can it use the crisis to push its global soft power?

Dexter Tiff Roberts is the author of just-released The Myth of Chinese Capitalism: the Worker, the Factory, and the Future of the World and an award-winning journalist and speaker now serving as a Fellow at the University of Montana’s Maureen and Mike Mansfield Center. He is a regular commentator on the U.S.-China economic, trade and political relationship. Previously he was China bureau chief and Asia News Editor at Bloomberg Businessweek, based in Beijing for more than two decades.
