One of WorldOregon's favorite events of the year is the annual Great Decisions series— featuring eight hard-hitting topics selected by the Foreign Policy Association! The Series returns to Portland State University this year, in-person with a streaming option available.
China’s economic rise and its current policies of increasing the role of the state in the economy have led some U.S. policymakers to seek to deny China access to U.S. technology and investment. This is seen as a necessary corrective to decades of predatory Chinese economic policies. Is this a wise strategy, and how effective can it be?
