you to a lecture by Michael Auslin:

The End of The Asian Century? Trump, Europe, and the race to manage the risks threatening Asia's future


Since Marco Polo, the West has waited for the “Asian Century.”
Today, the world believes that Century has arrived. Yet from China’s
slumping economy to war clouds over the South China Sea, and from
environmental devastation to demographic crisis, Asia’s future is
increasingly uncertain. Far from being a cohesive powerhouse, the
Indo-Pacific is a fractured region threatened by stagnation and
instability, in need of greater economic reform, more security
cooperation, and more responsive government. What role can the United
Kingdom, Europe, and the United States play in managing risk in Asia
over the coming decade? Will President Trump pursue a policy of
confrontation and economic mercantilism, while reducing America's
security commitments?
