Scared Strait: The Role of Economic Deterrence in a Taiwan Contingency

Grant Year: 2022

Gerard DiPippo will assess the potential role that economic sanctions might play if China engages in aggression against Taiwan. He will explore the respective vulnerabilities and strengths of the U.S. and Chinese economies in terms of coercive economic sanctions, assess the likelihood and efficacy of China’s mitigation measures to U.S. sanctions, and evaluate the sustainability and evolution of any hypothetical U.S. sanctions regime over time. The project’s findings will be presented in three reports.
