Expert calls for de-escalation and cooperation among China and U.S.
David Paul Goldman, an economic strategist, author and deputy editor of the Asia Times, casts doubt on the significant impact of technology export restrictions from the U.S. to China, citing China's increasing expertise and self-sufficiency in making its own investments. He refutes the notion that technology exports may be used by the Chinese military, emphasizing the need for both countries to exercise wisdom and de-escalate tensions. He emphasizes that avoiding a war between the two sides is the great task of his generation and highlights the responsibility of both China and the U.S. to their own countries as well as humanity to avoid confrontation. There is no inherent reason for China and the U.S. to engage in conflict.
