Pritzker Fellow Stephanie Murphy on "Case Study: U.S. - China Policy: Politics, Technology, National Security & Culture at a Crossroads"


(Current UChicago Students Only)


Monday, October 30

3:30-4:45 PM


The Biden Administration has continued a policy that began under President Trump to manage China’s competitive potential and to limit China’s technological edge. During the Trump Admin, the prevailing policy position on China was that it was a threat and a competitor that needed to be managed and that economic decoupling was necessary to safeguard American interests. In a change to conventional policy prioritization, this Administration has stated that national security will be the guiding principle irrespective of the impact on economic objectives. Why is there such bipartisan support for an anti-China policy? What policies have resulted from that consensus? What impact has it had on American businesses and American consumers? What are the policy objectives and is the U.S. government achieving them and at what cost?


Special Guest (via Zoom): U.S. Representative Jacob Auchincloss (D-MA)


Suggested Reading: Joe Biden's China strategy is not working
