After more than a decade of intimate economic relations, China and the United States have become deeply intertwined. Historian Zachary Karabell maintains that while neither country is fully at ease with this partnership, the occasional tension over intellectual property, human rights, and regional strategy pales in comparison to the deepening and on-going economic bonds that tie the two countries together.
Karabell sits on the board of the World Policy Institute and the New America Foundation. Among his books is Superfusion: How America and China Became One.
