As the most established ad man in Beijing, Tom has rare insight into Chinese politics and psychology. In 2015 he sees President Xi artfully balancing reforms with a continuing crackdown on corruption, earning him popular approval bordering on reverence.

The FT’s former Beijing reporter is now stationed in Washington, making him ideally placed to assess the contest between the two superpowers. While China will become the bigger economy, possibly within the next ten years, Geoff argues that it’s destined to fail.
