WPI Senior Fellow Ian Bremmer and David Gordon. "A year of discord between the U.S. and China." The Japan Times. January 30, 2010. "In 2009, Forbes magazine named U.S. President Barack Obama and Chinese President Hu Jintao the "world’s most powerful people." In 2010, we will discover that neither has the power to keep U.S.-Chinese relations on track. That is bad news for those who believe that U.S.-China cooperation is essential for reviving the global economy, meeting the challenge of climate change, containing threats of nuclear proliferation, and managing a host of other problems without borders. It is also bad news for America and China."
