Many talk about China, but there is very little genuine understanding of the Chinese Communist Party regime. Thus, China experts predict key political developments inaccurately and inconsistently, and later explain away their errors with the claim that “China is a black box.”

China is a black box because there is a very low degree of knowledge about the CCP in the expert community and the general public. Yet virtually all issues in China is downstream from CCP elite politics.

Without a deep understanding of the CCP, all information and analysis on China are false. This is especially so when years of CCP influence operations have allowed it to control the information environment and plug the world into a “Red Matrix”.

In other words, everyone is driving blindfolded on China. When the crash comes, everyone is clueless about what happened.

Founded in 2017, SinoInsider has an unparalleled track record of correctly predicting China because we deeply understand the CCP, its operations, and its culture.

Our leading experts have knowledge of the CCP from lived experiences, and are highly skilled in decoding Beijing’s double speak and Byzantine political logic. We specialize in analyzing CCP factional struggles, which shape elite politics.

Our China expertise gives us the added benefit of being able to accurately anticipate geopolitical developments involving China, such as the Sino-U.S. trade war and North Korea.

The Sinoinsider team is completely independent and free from the CCP regime’s influence. This is essential to our commitment to providing unadulterated information and analysis on CCP elite politics to our clients.

The rules of the game have changed since Xi Jinping took power in 2012 and with the election of Donald Trump as United States president. China is headed for tremendous change, and with change comes new risks and opportunities.

Surpass the competition today with SinoInsider.
