A Discussion on Economic Statecraft

As the COVID-19 crisis continues to cripple economies around the world, the US-China relationship becomes more strained. The economic security of America hinges largely on working with partners and allies toward developing strategic competition with China and combatting malign economic aggression. The current health crisis has put a spotlight on the broader implications of supply chain vulnerabilities and the need to shift toward a more offensive policy to protect American interests. Having an understanding of how China views the world and its place in it should determine western policy moving forward.
