This is the inside story of the US-China trade war, how relations between these superpowers unraveled, darkening prospects for global peace and prosperity, as told by two Wall Street Journal reporters, one based in Washington, DC, the other in Beijing, who have had more access to the decision-makers in the White House and in China’s Zhongnanhai leadership compound than anyone else. 

The trade battle between China and the US didn’t start with Trump and won’t end with him, argue Bob Davis and Lingling Wei. The two countries have a long and fraught political and economic history that has become more contentious over the past three years – an escalation that has negatively impacted both countries’ economies and the world at large – and holds the potential for even more uncertainty and disruption. How did this standoff happen? How much are US presidents and officials who haven’t effectively confronted or negotiated with China to blame? What role have Chinese leaders, and US business leaders who for decades acted as Beijing’s lobbyists in Washington, played in driving tensions between the two countries? 

Superpower Showdown is the story of a romance gone bad. Uniquely positioned to tell the story, Davis and Wei have conducted hundreds of interviews with government and business officials in both nations over the seven years they have worked together writing for the Wall Street Journal. Analyzing US-China relations, they explain how we have reached this tipping point and look at where we could be headed. 

Vivid and provocative, Superpower Showdown will help listeners understand the context of the trade war and prepare them for what may come next.
