Learning to Live With the U.S.-China RivalryVIEW EVENT DETAILS
A Talk With Arthur Kroeber
Early this year the Trump Administration defined China as a "strategic competitor using predatory economics." It followed that with threats of tariffs and restrictions on Chinese investment and demands that China cut its trade surplus with the U.S. and scale back its industrial policies supporting the growth of Chinese technology firms. For its part, China has vowed to stick to its efforts to become a technological superpower. Are the U.S. and China doomed to wage a new cold war for economic and technological supremacy? Or is it possible for the commercial competition between the world's two biggest economies to be a source of shared innovation and growth? Arthur Kroeber will explain the origins of the dramatic increase in U.S.-China tensions, the forces shaping it in both countries, and what must be done to keep the relationship on track.
