The Myth of China’s Might – And What it Means for America
November 8 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Cleveland Council on World Affairs Presents: A Foreign Policy Forum
Jeremy R. Haft, CEO of SafeSource Trading, an export trading firm, and co-founder and chairman of Caracal Strategies, a business advisory firm, will discuss the rise of China and its true economic might. With U.S. security concerns in Asia influenced by China’s economic power, Haft will address whether or not China is truly a rising global economic powerhouse.
Antique economic metrics have not kept pace with globalization which has led to a misunderstanding of the U.S.’s strength and competitiveness compared to China. In turn, this has justified policies that have the opposite of their intended effect. Haft will argue that the U.S. is $60 trillion wealthier than China, and the gap is growing, not shrinking, as China stagnates.
