Richard is a senior fellow at Johns Hopkins APL, a former Secretary of the Navy and a fiction guy. We traverse a number of subjects, including: how the risk of war with China is reflected in trade policy; the problems regulators face in high-tech industries; views on growing the U.S. Navy to 500 ships; how U.S. prime contracts differ from state-owned enterprises; and whether the Chinese are more risk-tolerant than the U.S. His book recs include: Woman of the Dunes, The Door, and The Lonely Polygamist.
