The economic costs of decoupling from China
Join Christopher Marquis, Cornell professor and host of the China Corner Office Podcast, for a live Webinar recording featuring guests Craig Allen, President of the US-China Business Council (USCBC) and Alex Mackle of Oxford Economics.
Can the US and China be strategic competitors and maintain a robust trade relationship? Could the US-China Commercial Relationship go from “Win-win” to “Lose-lose”? The costs of foreign economic policies are often not well understood, but they have real-world consequences to US households. If you are interested in these topics, then join Christopher Marquis, Cornell professor and host of the China Corner Office Podcast, for a live Webinar recording featuring guests Craig Allen, President of the US-China Business Council (USCBC) and Alex Mackle of Oxford Economics. On April 1, they will sit down to discuss these topics and more based on a recent report on the US-China Economic Relationship sponsored by the USCBC and Oxford Economics.
