A Student Conversation with Earl Carr
November 17, 2021
NYU Students hosted a special conversation with Earl Carr, Editor, From Trump to Biden and Beyond; Chief Global Strategist at Pivotal Advisors; and, Adjunct Faculty at the NYU School of Professional Studies Center for Global Affairs. This was an opportunity for students to both learn more about the book and have a larger discussion concerning US-China relations today. NYU DC Global Leadership Students JJ Briscoe and Harry Paragas served as interlocutors for this session.
From Trump to Biden and Beyond details how the last four years have seen significant damage in US-China relations that will take years to rebuild. Early signs within the Biden Administration indicate that an expeditious return to strong Sino-US ties is premature at best. To fully address these challenges and regain credibility both at home and abroad, the Biden team will need to recalibrate a new set of values, objectives, and thinking in redefining the most important bilateral relationship in the world. This edited book volume seeks to reimagine US-China relations, provide innovative policy analysis, and utilizes a truly multidisciplinary approach coupled with both first and second-hand quantitative data, infographics, geopolitical analysis, and perspectives from leading experts. More importantly, this book project provides a nuanced perspective highlighting the central issues that will define America and China both now and well into the future. Whether you are a policy-maker, business professional, academic, established practitioner, or a casual observer, this impressive volume provides exceptional insight on issues like technology, trade, cross-Strait relations, security & alliances in East Asia, geopolitics, climate change, and much more.
This session was open to NYU Students and was recorded.
