The Coming War with China:
Latin America and the Monroe Doctrine
K. Caldwell rightly so highlights the "growing polarization" of globalization and of China's rise in the globalization community to full partner status with America.
The FT article concludes with this dire warning of an "economic and political system ... that may end up seriously challenging western democratic thinking."
The concept of “mutually assured destruction” might be revived – but it will begin with economic, rather than nuclear, holocaust.
Is this, then, the future of the 21st Century? It is clear that many Americans now see the 21st Century as an American Century. We have the power and the might, but perhaps not the collective will nor desire. But I do know from personal experience and conversations with Chinese businessmen that many Chinese (on both sides of the Straits, and both sides of the Pacific) see the 21st Century as the Century of the Chinese. And I see no lacking of will and desire amongst them.
I reprint FT's article in a comment to this post.
