President Xi Jinping has centralized power in China to unprecedented levels: He has sidelined the prime minister and the State Council and tries to control everything himself, says Harvard University historian Roderick MacFarquhar in the new MERICS Podcast. Xi  might have a vision for China–like Mao Zedong long before him–but he lacks the authority and historic legitimacy to implement his ideas. Even worse: His leadership style weakens the entire system.
