While countries including the US and UK impose sanctions on China over anti-democratic reforms in Hong Kong, some commentators argue economic measures have "practically no effect" - and may contribute to anti-Asian sentiments in western countries.

In this episode, Jessie Lau joins Jeremy Cliffe and Emily Tamkin to discuss the political gridlock over Hong Kong, and whether there are alternative actions that might prove more effective.

Then, in You Ask Us, they take your questions on the US rejoining multilateral institutions, and the impact that might have on US-China relations.
