Study Group on Chinese Economic Development and U.S. National Security

Chair: Kenneth Lieberthal
Staff: Adam Segal, Maurice R. Greenberg Senior Fellow for China Studies
January 1, 2003 - June 30, 2004

This study group drew attention to the unraveling of the bipartisan consensus that Chinese economic development is good for U.S. security; provided a framework for assessing what security benefits and risks the United States can expect from its future economic relations with China; and described what the end of this consensus means for U.S. policy toward China, and Asia in general. With the resulting analysis the project director wrote a policy article, which provided brief descriptions of the security benefits that Chinese economic growth was expected to bring to the United States, outlined the security critique of U.S.-China economic relations, and addressed the integration and interaction of economic and security issues in the Sino-U.S. relationship.
