How to Counter China’s BRI

Jeff Luse writes in RealClearWorld on how the United States can counter China’s Belt and Road Intiative.

  • The BRI presents a challenge to expanding economic freedom and reducing emissions, as a majority of projects are powered with dirty coal.
  • To counter China’s growing influence in the developing world, the United States should export economic freedom through increased trade relations with key allies.
  • Doing so well benefit emerging economies and the environment for years to come.

“This multifaceted effort would provide a win for economic freedom and the environment worldwide. Rather than having the CCP serve as its loan shark, the developing world could see firsthand the benefits of American values such as democracy and free enterprise, creating allies and partners for years to come.”
