Wing Thye Woo
Professor of Economics, UC Davis

Dr. Woo will engage the audience in discussion on the questions:


  1. Is war between America (the fading dominant power) and the rising brash power (China) almost inevitable, e.g. John Mearsheimer (2001), Graham Allison (2017)?
  2. Are the Sino-US trade war and the pursuit of Huawei as rogue trader the opening shots? How then to stop the economic conflicts in order to prevent the escalation?
  3. How can Southeast Asia (SEA) make its neutrality acceptable to China and America? What is the economic component of the SEA strategy?
