China’s Made-in-America Success Story

Since the 1970's, the US has pursued a conscious policy of aiding China’s rise. So, despite America’s “pivot” to Asia, it intends to stick to its two-track approach: seek to maintain a balance of power with the help of strategic allies and partners, while continuing to accommodate a rising China.

NEW DELHI – America’s strategy in Asia for more than a century has sought a stable balance of power to prevent the rise of any hegemon. Yet the United States, according to its official National Security Strategy, is also committed to accommodating “the emergence of a China that is peaceful and prosperous and that cooperates with us to address common challenges and mutual interests.” So America’s Asia policy has in some ways been at war with itself.
