Counterbalance | Ep. 46: China’s Dominance of Commercial Maritime Industry Should Serve as a Warning

Michael Roberts & Michael Doran

Michael Doran hosts Hudson Institute Adjunct Fellow, Michael Roberts, to investigate the place of the United States in the global commercial maritime industry. Not only does China dominate the production of ships, but also largely controls shipping operations around the world. Doran and Roberts discuss the roots of the imbalance, its significance for American national security and the economic health of the United States, and the kinds of policies that will redress it.

About Counterbalance:

Counterbalance is a foreign policy podcast that embodies Hudson’s tradition of challenging conventional wisdom. The Trump era attacked the elite consensus regarding several key issues, including the rise of China, American policy toward the Middle East, and the compartmentalization of domestic and foreign policy. Many observers in the media and in establishment foreign policy circles are presenting the advent of a Biden presidency as a total repudiation of President Trump’s policies and a return to “normalcy.” But, regardless of how one feels about the Trump era or any of his specific policies, there is no turning back the clock. The elite foreign policy consensus will never be the same. Counterbalance will reckon with what’s next.
