How the West is missing the ‘tectonic shift’ happening in China – and the disturbing emergence of so-called ‘deep’ fake news

30th August 2018

John Ridding is chief executive of the Financial Times. Since starting his career on the newspaper’s international desk, he has reported from South Korea, Indonesia and China. After he introduced a paywall in 2008, the FT is now celebrating the highest paid-for readership in its 130-year history. In this in-depth interview, he talks fondly about the ‘serendipity factor’ that print brings, and warns how the world risks missing the ‘tectonic shift’ happening in China while we’re distracted by Trump and Brexit.
