This episode I spoke with Dr. Jing Wang, an Assistant Professor of Interactive Media Business at NYU Shanghai, where her recent research has focused on the policy environment surrounding China's fintech platforms, and how these platforms impact corporate-government relations.
We discuss China's evolving fintech policies, and how the sector has become more heavily regulated in recent years. Jing also talks about the ways in which the state is treating the financial arms of tech giants like Alibaba and Tencent more like traditional banks, and what the wider implications of these policy shifts could be. Finally, we discuss the future of fintech policy, and how some of China's fintech innovations could be brought to the US.
