Nouriel Roubini on US & China – quickly escalating into a death match

A piece from Nouriel Roubini, CEO of Roubini Macro Associates and Professor of Economics at the Stern School of Business

  • a hot war between the world’s two major powers still seems far-fetched, a cold war is becoming more likely.

  • the Soviet Union was a declining power with a failing economic model
  • China will soon become the world’s largest economy
  • China is fully integrated in the global trading and investment system, and deeply intertwined with the US
I don’t think this will come as a surprise to many. Well worth reading:
