Business Insight: Explaining the tenuous relationship between the U.S. and China
Distinguished Professor Farok Contractor’s expertise in international business was showcased during a public lecture on “The Ascendency of China” at Nottingham University Business School in China.
During the lecture, Professor Contractor explained the often misunderstood business flows between China and the United State and the reasons why the two world powers stand to benefit from cooperation.
Contractor argued that there is no structural or fundamental reason why the two countries should not cooperate on a broad range of issues. Still, the U.S. has experienced increasing anti-globalization since 2016 and the start of Donald Trump's presidency. Meanwhile, China has clung to grievances that date back more than 150 years, Contractor explained.
Contractor, who is president-elect of the Academy of International Business, is a world renown scholar of international business. The academy co-sponsored the virtual lecture.
