Description

This week on Sinica, Kaiser welcomes back Ryan Hass, the Michael H. Armacost Chair at the John L. Thornton China Center at the Brookings Institute, a senior adviser at the Scowcroft Group and McLarty Associates, and the China Director at the National Security Council during the second Obama administration. Ryan’s new book, Stronger: Adapting America's China Strategy in an Age of Competitive Interdependence, lays out a great approach to right-sizing the challenges that China poses in the decades ahead and identifies a set of sensible U.S. responses: running faster instead of trying to trip the other guy, regaining confidence and avoiding declinism and defeatism, and not turning China into an enemy. 

4:42 : Differences in Biden and Trump administrations

25:37 : How interdependence with China raises American interests

29:31 : A firm and steady approach to America’s foremost competitor

43:54 : Risk reduction and crisis management vis-à-vis China

Recommendations:

Ryan: Any publication by William J. Burns, the current director of the Central Intelligence Agency. 

Kaiser: Works by Susan B. Glasser, particularly those narrated by Julia Whelan.
