China is on track to be the world’s leading economy but it is not sauntering up to economic hegemony. Rather, according to economists Greg Autry and Peter Navarro, China is attacking America’s economic preeminence on all fronts using protectionism, currency manipulation, cyber attacks, espionage and even nuclear proliferation to dominate. China bashing, you say, but in their new book Death by China Autry and Navarro say it’s not bashing if it’s true. They explore how imported food, drugs and toys have caused illness and death in the U.S and how American corporations align themselves with China’s state-owned industries to further undermine manufacturing jobs in the U.S. But Death by China isn’t only a rant against the Dragon. The economists offer a complete plan to confront China’s economic assault and look closely at how U.S. policy needs to respond to the Chinese economic and eventual military onslaught.
