(May 29, 2019) China’s superpower pragmatism in Southeast Asia - Thitinan Pongsudhirak

Discerning visitors can see why the United States has locked horns with China over trade and technology. Standing in downtown Beijing or Shanghai and being dwarfed by their skyscrapers yields a sense of awe. In less than two generations, the Chinese have nearly caught up with the Americans, leapfrogging them in notable ways. Just as gleaming Manhattan in New York City once symbolized the U.S.’s economic prowess and confident cosmopolitanism, the newer, equally modern Beijing and Shanghai are giving China’s global rival a run for its money. Seen from this perspective, it is unsurprising that Washington is pushing back against China for taking advantage of the international economic system that the U.S. has built.

This grounded view can be projected into geopolitical and geoeconomic terms. China, as the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump sees it, wants to supplant the U.S. as the preeminent global superpower.
