Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs
The Future of US-China Economic and Political Relations
In this round table, economists and political scientists take stock of the US-China relationship in light of a devastating health crisis and more than two years of intermittent trade war. Panelists will address the economic shock of Covid-19 in both countries and unpack what appear to be starkly different stimulus strategies. Looking forward, panelists will discuss key junctures in the bilateral relationship, including the ongoing trade war, an upcoming presidential election, as well as tensions over multilateral commitments and competition.
