How will U.S.-China trade friction evolve, and could escalation put in danger an otherwise distinctly positive global economic outlook? In China itself, what do the changes in long-term policy orientation heralded during the 19th Congress mean? How does one reconcile "Socialism with Chinese characteristics" with globalization and further integration of China into the world economy? How does China’s evolution affect the landscape of Asian manufacturing? Regardless, China’s global economic role continues to expand, in absolute terms and relative to that of the U.S. What are the key ways in which this shows up, and so what? Will this relative shift continue? While China is on the rise, U.S. financial markets and the dollar still dominate the global economy. When and how will that change?
