About This Event
The United States and China are locked in a geopolitical contest for technological, ideological, and military supremacy that will define the 21st century. If anything, the global spread of COVID-19 has only intensified this competition, throwing these powers' contrasting global outlooks and ambitions-as well as their limitations-into sharp relief. What does this crisis reveal about US-China relations in 2020? Could the pandemic and its economic fallout alter their global trajectories? Center for a New American Security CEO Richard Fontaine and Asia Research Institute distinguished fellow Kishore Mahbubani join Council President Ivo Daalder to discuss.
Kishore Mahbubani's new book, Has China Won?: The Chinese Challenge to American Primacy, is available from the Book Cellar.
