POWERFUL DIFFERENT EQUAL
Overcoming the Misconceptions and Differences Between China and the US
From aggressive rhetoric against China, to the escalating trade war with tit-for-tat responses, and China’s 2025 initiative that threatens the US global leadership in advanced technologies, tensions between the US and China (the two dominant forces of today’s world) have never been higher.
Powerful, Different, Equal provides a timely analysis of the US-China relationship. Each country is rooted in its respective history and culture, and both are highly successful in achieving their main goals and highly resilient over time. Powerful, Different, Equal explores the historical foundations of each economic model, the core misconceptions on governance, economic, social and military issues, and the root causes of these misconceptions. If China and the US could close the gap by each understanding those differences and their implications, Pete argues, they could work together to overcome global issues to the benefit of all.
