Struggle over Global Power
China has become hot topic, you cannot read the daily newspaper, turn on the TV for national news or listen to NPR without hearing some big story on China. Beijing is touted as a major contender for global power, against the United States. Recently, I listened to a controversial NPR talk show interview on “On Point,” with Martin Jacques, during which he discussed his new book, When China Rules the World. His argument centered on how China will eventually replace the American government as a world leader.
