This talk analyzes trends in Chinese views of U.S.-China interdependence from Xi Jinping’s rise to the COVID-19 pandemic. As U.S.-China relations have sharply deteriorated, the prospect of “decoupling” is looming larger for leaders in both Beijing and Washington. But it remains unclear how that process will play out, and how far it will go. How do China’s leaders and other Chinese elites think about these prospects? How will U.S.-China decoupling affect China’s domestic evolution and its global role?
