Stephen Roach is a Yale professor with extensive experience in China. He also taught the first China class I ever took, so it may be fair to say he's partially to blame for the entire ChinaTalk enterprise.
In our conversation (taped on February 23), we discuss:
- The nexus between US-China relations and the DSM-5 (we need some relationship therapy!);
- How false narratives strangle effective diplomatic development;
- What Stephen thinks about the odds of a hot conflict over Taiwan;
- Practical proposals to improve the bilateral relationship, including what a “US-China Secretariat” (based in neutral Tahiti, obviously) would look like;
- Is it the US or China — or both — who fundamentally has no interest in engagement?
Apologies for my audio quality in the second half of the show.
