Most discussion on U.S. China policy focuses on the implications of a rising China but does not consider some of the challenges that could be posed by an economically stagnating China. How would a severe and sustained economic growth slowdown affect China’s military modernization and foreign security policy? Would military conflict between China and the United States become more or less likely? Join us as we compare China to past rising great powers that experienced secular economic stagnation.
