Much of the West, as well as Asia, continues to assume the worst about China - a habit of mind that could have catastrophic consequences. As Albert Camus once wrote, “Mistaken ideas always end in bloodshed, but in every case it is someone else’s blood."

China is working to strengthen multilateral institutions which it sees as having failed to adjust to the growing clout of emerging and developing economies, says Xizhou Zhou. That failure to adjust undermines their legitimacy

The recent decision by China to let the renminbi fall below CN¥7 per US dollar has little to do with trade or currency wars. Rather, it represents an important step toward reforming China’s inflexible exchange-rate regime says Yu Yongding

The US trade war with China is driven as much by anxiety over China's rise as by economic rationality. As Greek historian Thucydides saw, that kind of insecurity can have disastrous consequences

The US is pursuing a bipartisan containment strategy of China. Whether justified or not, the real problem is less the merits of the allegations leveled by US politicians than the incoherence of the Trump administration’s policies to address them

Why should China bow to a US that treats it as an enemy? By treating international trade as a zero-sum game in which the US makes its own rules, the Americans have weakened the incentive for countries to engage in policy cooperation

China overtakes the USA as our main market for beef. Although pushed up by the ASF demand recently, the long-term trend was already in play boosted by Chinese dietary changes. But other competitors are challenging for China's demand too

Despite the damage populists have done in the West, Asian voters are increasingly falling for the likes of India’s Modi, Indonesia’s Widodo, and the Philippines’ Duterte. How can responsible Asian leaders win?

Time and again, the long view in China has stood in sharp contrast to America’s short-term approach. Sun Tzu put it best: “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the results of a hundred battles”

If you think the Sino-American negotiations over trade, technology, and related issues appear to be back on, don't hold your breath. Beijing has settled in with a long term strategy
