China vs. U.S.
A Political Analysis of U.S.—China Competition, a Police State vs. a Democracy
About the Book
“Brad Peery shows why China’s rise and the Belt and Road Initiative must be a top concern for the Trump administration. A must read to understand US-China relations from an American perspective.”
Dr. Sebastien Goulard, coordinator of OBOReurope
China’s One Belt, One Road Initiative, in which it is investing in about seventy countries, will allow it to develop maritime ports to challenge the supremacy of the United States of America in a way the world has never seen.
As a police state with almost ninety million Communist Party members and a leader for life, China seeks to replace the United States as the strongest country in the world politically, technologically, and militarily.
While the United States is at a disadvantage because of changing presidential administrations, it has one strategic advantage: It can spur technological innovation through the private sector. It also has President Donald Trump, who is challenging China in ways previous administrations did not.
Brad Peery, a former U.S. Senate candidate with decades of experience in the investment industry, examines Trump’s policies as well as the political, ethical, and economic issues that face companies trying to do business in China.
He also explores how China is developing or supporting emerging technologies such as self-driving and electric vehicles, quantum computing, and artificial intelligence – and stealing intellectual property from American companies along the way.
