Guest: Michael Auslin, Fellow in Contemporary Asia, The Hoover Institute, Stanford University In the 20thCentury, the U.S. economy was so dominant that people said, “When America sneezes, the world catches a cold.” These days, that might also apply to China. It’s a giant in its neighborhood and our largest trading partner –just look at the stuff around your house. Much of President Trump’s rhetoric in his trade war seems focused on keeping China’s power in check and America in the dominant role.
