US Strategy to Contain China
Thu November 14, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EST
The Pivot to Asia/Pacific and the Trans Pacific Partnership
Thursday, November 14, 2013, 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Center for Marxist Education • 550 Mass. Ave. • 2nd floor • Central Sq T • Cambridge
The US strategy to contain a rising China is a combination of the Obama administration’s pivot or rebalancing to Asia/Pacific and the Trans Pacific Partnership, the proposed NAFTA-like free trade agreement. US capitalism/imperialism, while still regarding China as an excellent source of profit, is more and more worried that Chinese economic success will challenge US global dominance. The China Study Group will examine the US two-part strategy: encircle China with military arrangements and build a US dominated mega-economic bloc in the Pacific region. A presentation by Duncan McFarland, China Study Group coordinator, will be followed by discussion. The event is sponsored by the Center for Marxist Education and endorsed by UJP.
