An emerging narrative in 2012 is that a proliferation of protectionist Chinese policies is to blame for worsening U.S.-China relations. There is no question that some Chinese policies have been discriminatory and provocative, but the U.S. government has also indulged in protectionism and made some poor choices that have and will continue to fuel bilateral disputes. Responsible policymakers should be looking beyond the politics to find solutions that remind people in both countries of our interdependence and the mutual benefits of the relationship. Join us for a discussion with U.S.-China trade policy experts about Dan Ikenson’s new paper “Trade Policy Priority One: Averting a U.S.-China Trade War” and the nature of the bilateral trade relationship.
