To examine the US- China conflict and understand the  implications of a chinese desire to alter the global status-quo. To assess the implications of the present conflict from the historical perspective of the Japanese challenge to the US in the 1930s.

Context

Beyond the curve: 

History may not repeat but rhymes with the present. Thje COVID-19 pandemics has sparked off a disturbing exchange between Global powerhouses, primarily the US and China.

In the 1930s, a race for power plunged the world into its worth ever war and it is enlightening to re-examine trends from the past as we chart a road map for the future.

 
Key Questions: 
  • Is China following a similar path that Japan did in the 1930s?
  • Democracy may not guarantee success in a pandemic but is it the only antidote to fatal messaging?
  • Is bad decision making the new norm?
