If there is one thing policymakers and pundits can agree on, it is that China poses the greatest challenge to the United States in the twenty-first century. That is indisputable—China’s rise is a challenge that is qualitatively different and thornier than any the United States confronted last century. Therefore, debates on how to properly handle China’s economic and political arrival cannot merely exist in a Beltway silo but will require a broader reckoning of what could and should be done. So it is my hope that this collection from MacroPolo can bring value to these ongoing discussions. This volume is meant to be as accessible as it is substantive, with each chapter grounding its high-level perspectives in bottom-up analysis, yielding deep insights about contemporary China.
