Speaker: David J. Bulman
The US and China have entered into a mutually harmful economic conflict, one with the potential to cripple the current economic order. Although tariffs have received the most media attention, the conflict goes much deeper than trade, reflecting rising competition and security fears related to cross-border investment, global governance, and technology. Dr. David Bulman of the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) will discuss this emerging economic conflict and its consequences, especially as it presents from China’s perspective.
What are the roots of the US-China conflict? How is this conflict affecting China’s economy and government? What does the conflict between these two super-powers mean for the rest of the Asia-Pacific region? Join Dr. Bulman and CCWA on October 1, 2019 to answer these questions and discuss this evolving globally pertinent topic.
