Dr. Stephen Roach

Join the Yale Club of Southwest Florida to hear Dr. Stephen Roach. Roach will provide his authoritative and informative take on the misguided forces driving conflict escalation between America and China, and the path to a new relationship.

In just the past five years, America and China have entered a trade war, a tech war, and a new Cold War. In this talk, Yale economist Dr. Stephen Roach will argue that these conflicts are being enabled by false narratives on both sides — narratives that are more a reflection of each nation’s fears and vulnerabilities than a credible assessment of the risks they face. He will suggest a creative approach for a new road map to a healthier Sino-American relationship.
