Dear Aman,
No my piece was a one off that was responding to an article from another academic that talked about the “superficial friendship” between the US and China.
My basic point was that little positives can help nurture more positive relationships.
Since I penned that piece, the political climate on both sides of the Pacific have deteriorated to the point that I would be surprised to see much collaboration of substance between governments.
Good luck with your study.

The part of the article I was especially interested in is how these businesses have commercial stakes in each other can spillover to broader relations writ-large. It seems to me that the United States and China have fundamental problems over things like the SCS, cybersecurity, etc. I'm wondering on how "honest lines of communications" can undo these problems.

 

Thank you so much for your help.

Professor Valentine,

 

I was wondering if you had any updates to your ideas on your proposal? You might not be aware, but this year’s high school policy topic is about U.S.-China economic/diplomatic engagement. Your work has influenced how I’ve approached the topic greatly, and it would be great to talk to you.
