China after Ukraine: War in an Era of Accelerating Deglobalization with Gordon G. Chang
With the Ukraine war, we have just passed an historic inflection point, transitioning from a period of general peace to one of continual turbulence. In a turbulent world, where the skies and seas are no longer considered safe, trade will decline as countries "onshore" to avoid war risk. A trade-dependent China will perhaps be the world's biggest victim of deglobalization.
