<h2>Fareed Zakaria GPS</h2>

June 27, 2021 |On GPS: As China celebrates a century of communism, Fareed talks to an expert panel about what’s next for China. Plus, Malcolm Gladwell is back with a revisionist history perspective on everything from autonomous cars to the Little Mermaid.

On Thursday, the Chinese Communist Party will celebrate its 100-year anniversary and Beijing is commemorating with festivities all over the country. Fareed hosts Elizabeth Economy, senior fellow for China studies at the Council for Foreign Relations, Rana Mitter, professor of modern China at Oxford, and Jiayang Fan, a staff writer for The New Yorker, to discuss how the Chinese Communist Party survived a tumultuous century and what the future looks like for China as its economic power grows and expands all over the world. Then, Fareed and Malcolm Gladwell talk about what’s on the best-selling author and podcaster’s mind: self-driving cars, war games, college rankings, and Disney’s The Little Mermaid. Finally, Fareed looks at a worrying global trend: governments cracking down on free speech in online spaces.
