Product Details

Through this online ET Workshop, students will be encouraged to research key economic principles, relevant history over the last century of U.S. government and business involved in Asia, and also the astonishingly rapid economic development of Japan, Hong Kong (part of China since 1997), Taiwan, South Korea, and China.

Prosperity in each country was led by market reforms that opened their economies to foreign direct investment, along with reduced trade barriers around the world that allowed rapid expansion of manufacturing and exports.

This year’s U.S./China policy reform debate topics invite students to research economics and international relations, as well as the U.S./China history. United States businesses and the U.S. military have been involved in China and Japan since Commodore Perry opened Japan to international trade in 1853. U.S. businesses, diplomats, and military have also been involved in China since the 1800s, and became more involved after the U.S. government took control of the Philippines after the Spanish American War.

What should U.S. policy in Asia and with China be through the 21st Century? International trade and investment policies and treaties are key to U.S./China relations, and classical liberals argue that trade and investment reduces military conflicts.

But what are U.S. trade policies with China? There are standard ways to look at trade policy through the lens of economic principles. Interventions restricting voluntary trade across political borders are advocated by people, firms, and interest groups who expect to benefit from these interventions.

Through this course, Mr. Rehmke, and a range of scholars available through online articles, videos, and books, will review U.S./China policy topic and economic principles involved.

This online Economic Thinking Workshop is offered to students, families and debate clubs, and is available at no charge to students attending ET workshops. Our goal is to provide an online learning experience similar to attending an Economic Thinking workshop.

Students and clubs will be invited to Skype sessions for questions and further discussion.
