Why Not Nip It in the Bud? A Reigning Power's Economic Choice in Balancing against a Challenging Power

Brown Bag Lunch

Speaker: DJ Kim, Research Fellow, International Security Program

Why does a reigning power not supplement military balancing against a challenging power by reducing bilateral trade ties? This seminar explores how these two factors together constrain the reigning state's decision over bilateral commerce when balancing militarily against the challenging state. The seminar will also examine whether the United States would be able to contain China both economically and militarily if Beijing were to grow more assertive and openly challenge the U.S.-led international order.
