Understanding and Responding to China’s Economic Decoupling Strategy Against the United States

Grant Year: 2020


John Lee will research and write a monograph examining the thinking and strategies of Chinese leaders on how to “decouple” their economy from that of the United States and the West and explore the implications of those views for U.S. interests. He will collect and analyze primary and secondary Chinese source materials pertaining to U.S.–China economic linkages and Beijing’s assessments of the vulnerabilities stemming from those links. He will also conduct field work in Washington, New York, Sydney, and Taipei.
