China’s eco­nomic growth can­not be un­der­mined but its im­pact on the global power bal­ance is be­ing con­tested in eco­nomic cir­cles. Fried­berg, a po­lit­i­cal an­a­lyst, has pre­sented ar­gu­ments to an­a­lyse the role of US in coun­ter­ing China’s grow­ing strength. The strate­gies em­ployed by US and China to meet their goals has been deeply ex­plained by Fried­berg. Ac­cord­ing to him the US lead­ers are not ex­pe­di­tiously act­ing to over­come China’s in­creas­ing dom­i­nance. The ri­valry be­tween US and China is a sig­nif­i­cant part of the 21st cen­tury, in which China has adopted a ‘no con­fronta­tion’ strat­egy. Here, Fried­berg crit­i­cizes the mis­lead­ing sig­nals by US which may cause a risk of war. There­fore, the author sug­gests a well- pro­cessed strat­egy which US should adopt which is based on con­cil­i­a­tion, peace and strong eco­nomic plans
