Demonization and Sino-American Relations


Program Description:

China is either one of our best friends or an enemy to be despised. Current criticisms from the “Blue Team” portray China as our major opponent, whose totalitarian ways are an enigma to the outside world; others have staked their companies’ future growth on developing business relations with the PRC. What causes these swings in attitudes, and how can we think about the relationship more objectively?
