From the American Challenge to the Chinese Challenge?

From the American Challenge to the Chinese Challenge?

The unfolding Western effort to paint a picture of a benign America and a malign China is a distortion of the historical truth.

Takeaways

  • China is positioning itself to be the guarantor of the global trade regime in the environmental domain.
  • There is not a country in the world where China does not have a significant presence.
  • China’s view of the world is very hierarchical. It does not believe in the equality of states.
  • The New Silk Road Route – known in China as OBOR – exemplifies globalization with Chinese characteristics.
Next year, 2017, may go down in the annals of history as Year One of the new global order – or, perhaps more accurately, of the new global disorder. http://www.theglobalist.com/united-states-china-challenge-obor/
