While maintaining the United States’ technological edge with China is essential, the balance of power will ultimately not be determined by technology but by diplomacy, alliances and strategic choices, according to Joseph Nye, former assistant secretary of defense for international security affairs, now distinguished service professor, emeritus at Harvard University.

  • The U.S. is economically and ecologically interdependent with China and must work with the country to address global issues like climate change in order to advance U.S. interests, said Nye.
  • He said the two nations are playing a “three-dimensional chess game” with military, economic and ecological boards, the third encompassing transnational concerns like pandemics and the environment.
  • Nye suggested development of a special set of trade relations for telecommunications with democratic countries and recommended the U.S. take soft power – influence through attraction as opposed to coercion – seriously.
