Maybe the relevance of this post is escaping me. Over the weekend, quite a
few unread FD emails were purged to make the task of catching up a little
But I'll bite. Regarding China, as they've been liberalizing their economy
for nearly the last three decades, personal freedoms have gone up, with
political liberties to follow suit soon enough. If anyone has read Milton
Friedman's "Capitalism and Freedom," this makes sense. Economic freedom
begets freedom in the broader sense, be it freedom of the press, freedom of
religion, or political freedom.
There are enough Cold Warriors in the DoD who can make the case that China
is our next near-peer military competitor (forget the whole Mutual Assured
Destruction concept). Their motivation is primarily economic (divert funding
for big weapons systems projects), as well as political (gaining power &
influence with tales of the Sino Bogeyman).
Until a later time (next administration?), a grand Sino-American alliance
will have to wait till politics catches up with Wall St (which has already
embraced the idea that China is a strategic opportunity).
