Thoughts from the Chairman: How to Pragmatically Respond to Greater Chinese Activism on the Global Stage

At the same time, we should avoid simplistic and knee-jerk tendencies to paint all Chinese departures from the status quo as irresponsible and in conflict with our own interests. Despite our differing diplomatic approaches, when viewed from the perspective of considering what kind of rules of the game would be best, there is potentially more common ground between the United States and China than first meets the eye.
