In this episode of RANE’s Essential Geopolitics podcast powered by Stratfor, Emily Donahue speaks to Michael Monderer, Stratfor senior analyst for global economics at RANE.
This year, China began testing a digital currency.

Monderer explains what that means, why businesses should care, and the forecast for China’s digital plans.
