Geoeconomics and Economic Statecraft

In today’s global economy, the key distinction between the Cold War and the current rise of China as a peer competitor is critical. Whereas U.S. trade and investment with the Soviet Union was negligible, the United States and China find themselves in a highly interdependent and contentious relationship. IGCC’s research on geoeconomics and economic statecraft focuses on three highly interrelated elements of geoeconomic competition: the pursuit of industrial policy; the creation of new trading arrangements; and the changing landscape of investment.
