Elizabeth Larus, Professor and Chairman of the Department of Political Science and International Affairs indicated that any economic “de-coupling” between the U.S. and China will be very difficult. “You can’t just say you’re going to pick up your factory and move all your resources and have a consistent, reliable energy source and the shipping port to get your stuff out at a decent price, and the logistics. China has nailed that down,” said Larus, the author of Politics and Society in Contemporary China. She also indicated that China seeks to make the world reliant on the country for its supply chain, but not to have China reliant on the rest of the world. She did not see a de-escalation in U.S.-China relations any time soon. Read her comments at:
