The state of US-China relations are tense. Yet the economic concerns – such as intellectual property theft and Chinese protectionism – which are fueling the current trade war between the world’s two largest economies, are only one aspect of Americans’ increasingly negative views about China. Fareed Zakaria dissects the core assumptions behind Washington’s growing determination to confront and contain China and explains why they are not only faulty and hypocritical, but also, dangerous. His piece offers solid counterpoint to the noise of the daily news cycle.
