1. China's Economic Impact on Sino-U.S. Relations

China's Economic Impact on Sino-U.S. Relations


With the rapid increase in China's overseas investment and trade, China's global economic clout is increasing by the day. Chinese investment projects around the world, from railways in Africa and dams in Latin America to the acquisition of landmark buildings in the US, look to alter global patterns of influence and power. How would other countries react to China's rising international influence? How will the incumbent neo-imperialist power, the US, deal with and coexist with an emergent China?

In this lecture, Toh Han-Shih will interest readers who wish to understand the economic impact of China, such as the Belt and Road Project on various countries, its place on the world stage as well as the geopolitical implications for all in the 21st century.
