Wei To Think Again
By Weifeng Zhong, Senior Research Fellow, Mercatus Center at George Mason University
Welcome to my personal newsletter on US-China relations. I believe nuance matters in understanding United States’ economic and geopolitical relations with China, so it requires that we take a second look—to think again—when delving into a topic. For example, as discussed in my inaugural issue, China’s move into Afghanistan might not be something to fret about if you look deeper into the challenges in investing in the country’s mineral resources.
