China is a significant, but not an existential, threat

China vs. USA

Secretary of State Antony Blinken recently declared that “China is the only country with both the intent to reshape the international order and, increasingly, the…power to do it.” By contrast, Blinken’s predecessor, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, said during the last year of the Trump administration, “Securing our freedoms from the Chinese Communist Party is the mission of our time.”

Prof. Andrew Nathan, distinguished China expert, longtime human rights advocate, and professor of political science at Columbia University, cautions against any China panic and describes the China threat as significant, but not existential.

Ying Ma spoke to Prof. Nathan in the latest episode of her podcast, “China vs. USA.” Listen or download HERE.
