US-Chinese relations have been strained as the world’s two largest economies have engaged in trade conflict – escalating with the imposition of tariffs under the Trump Administration. In a new book, Superpower Showdown: How the Battle Between Trump and Xi Threatens a New Cold War, veteran journalists Bob Davis and Lingling Wei, explore the political and economic dynamics of US-China relations.
BFI-China and the Asian Bureau of Finance and Economic Research hosted Davis and Wei for a virtual discussion of their book, moderated by Booth Professor of Finance and BFI-China Director Zhiguo He. They were joined by Booth Professor of Economics Chang-Tai Hsieh and Tsinghua University Dean of School of Economics & Management Chong-En Bai for a roundtable discussion on the book and the broader topic of US-China trade relationships. Following the roundtable, the panelists took audience questions.
