#13 | Michael Beckley on the Exaggerated Rise of China
China may decline sooner than we think. And that isn't good.
In this episode, Prof. Michael Beckley and I discuss China’s financial and military strength relative to the United States, why China’s rise looks exaggerated and misunderstood, and why a weaker-than-expected China may be more dangerous than a dominant China.
Michael Beckley is an associate professor of political science at Tufts University and a Jeane Kirkpatrick Visiting Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. He is the author of Unrivaled: Why American Will Remain the World’s Sole Superpower from Cornell University Press (2018).
