Former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd says there are ways to avoid an all-out conflict between China and the US.
Within a few years, China will overtake the United States as the world’s No. 1 economy, and China’s influence is spreading around the world, mostly at the expense of America’s global leadership.
Former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd tells host Steve Clemons that this is the “decisive decade” in relations between the two powers. Either they find a way to share the wealth and power, or they are headed for a collision course.
But with the current political climates in the West and East, where politicians are rewarded for nationalistic tough talk and non-compromise, is there hope for better relations between Beijing and Washington?
