Net Assessment: Playing the China Card
Join Melanie, Chris, and Bryan for a discussion of how to think about great power competition with China. Using Brookings scholar Tarun Chhabra’s recent report “The China challenge, democracy, and US grand strategy” as the impetus for the conversation, our hosts dive into whether China’s threat to liberal democracies is more of a challenge than that presented by the former Soviet Union, and if so, what America is willing to do to contest that challenge. Stay to the end to hear Melanie’s inspired “Attagirl” for the senior senator from California.
