Description

This week on Sinica, Kaiser chats with the three authors of a new policy paper from the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft, a relatively new D.C.-based think tank that advocates restraint in U.S. foreign policy. Michael D. Swaine, Jessica J. Lee, and Rachel Esplin Odell authored the report Toward an Inclusive & Balanced Regional Order: A New U.S. Strategy in East Asia, which was published by the Quincy Institute on January 11. In this longer-than-usual episode, they detail their recommendations for how they believe the Biden-Harris administration should approach the region, especially China.

12:17 : Sinophobia and Cold War mentalities

23:33 : The most pressing issues in East Asia

42:59 : Limited disentanglement in U.S.-China technology

52:07 : The role of U.S. forces in Japan and South Korea

1:05:30 : Taiwan’s “porcupine strategy” 

Recommendations:

Rachel: Women in Color, an album by Raye Zaragoza, and The Dispossessed, by Ursula K. Le Guin. 

Jessica: Lengthy puzzles as a way to provide some respite from laptops and cell phones.

Michael: Continuing the trend of non-screen-related activities, Michael recommends taking up oil painting. 

Kaiser: Dark Mirror: Edward Snowden and the American Surveillance State, by Barton Gellman.
