Economic Interdependence & Supply Chain Complexities

Guiding Prompts:

Can the U.S. capitalist model and Chinese state-directed economic model coexist in the global economic system? How can the U.S. and China cooperate to address challenges of global economic governance despite the differences between their economic models? How should the U.S. government do to ensure a level playing field for its companies as China wields increasing economic influence? What should U.S. industrial policy for the 21st century look like? How are global supply chain dependencies affecting U.S.-China relations? How should the U.S. government weigh trade-offs when considering domestic vs. globalized supply chains? Are trade-offs sector, region, or firm dependent? What policies should the U.S. government pursue in global supply chain configurations, and what role should China play in them?
