Host: Hudson Institute. Come to a discussion featuring Charles Wolf of RAND Corporation, S. Enders Wimbush of Hudson Institute, and Charles Horner of Hudson Institute. In Dr. Wolf’s view, one should assess US-China relations as a balance sheet with both positive and negative entries—respectively representing convergent and divergent interests, assets and liabilities—on the two sides of the ledger. Entries include security, political, and economic dimensions. Depending on weights attached to the entries, one can arrive at a net positive or negative bottom-line. The weights suggested are debatable, and there are significant entries on both sides of the account, but on balance they appear positive.
