Four Principles for U.S. Policy in Competing with China

With a deep bench of China experts, the Biden administration appears poised to build on the Trump administration’s view of China as a strategic competitor by working with allies and partners, strengthening the U.S. at home and clearly defining areas of cooperation and competition.

 

In the past, I observed that there are three species of China hawks in Congress: national security hawks, economic hawks and human rights hawks. Under the Trump administration, their interests were aligned. In Congress, this built a consensus view of China as a strategic competitor.

 

Instead of flocks of hawks, I now see distinctions among Members of Congress as to the appropriate policy response to China’s growing power. A more useful classification now divides members into three distinct camps:

Punishers, who seek to harm China for lost jobs, stolen intellectual property, COVID-19 or other offenses;

Decouplers, who wish to sever the economic relationship partially or entirely; and

Salvagers, like myself, who view engagement with China as necessary to achieving U.S. policy goals.
