The Story of the Week (Nov. 5 to 9)

by Colin Ellis Friday November 9, 2012

Every Friday, The Agenda’s Story of the Week brings you an interview with an expert on the week's top news story. (Read my previous blog post to see how we pick the topic.)

We’re doubling up on the Story of the Week this Friday with two feature interviews on leadership transitions in China and the United States.

We have an interview with contributor and frequent guest of The Agenda Gordon Chang on China’s 18th Party Congress and what lays in store for the People’s Republic.

Plus, we look at the aftermath of the U.S. presidential election and the re-election of President Barack Obama. Columbia University professor Fredrick Harris will discuss how Obama's victory as the first black president hasn't translated into meaningful progress for African-Americans.
