This week, I invited Joseph Solis-Mullen on the show to discuss his most recent article published at the Libertarian Institute. The article, entitled “The Fake China Threat and Its Very Real Danger” does an excellent job of demonstrating why China is no threat to the United States. The first half of the episode, Joseph and I walk the listener through the last 180 years of US-Sino relations–a background that is essential for anyone seeking insight into this topic. In the second half, we discuss the inflated China threat.
Joseph Solis-Mullen is a political scientist, journalist, and author. He is a current graduate student in the economics department at the University of Missouri. His work can be found at The Mises Institute, the Libertarian Institute, Eurasian Review, Journal of the American Revolution, Antiwar.com, and the Journal of Libertarian Studies.
