The U.S. has long reigned supreme in global finance, but a new challenger to its hegemony has emerged.

Many factors are aligning to dim the future, but it’s important to keep trying. While the two rivals are stuck in a mode of competition, suspicion and hard bargaining, the cliff can still be avoided.

The coronavirus crisis presents an opportunity for collaboration to the U.S. and China. It is time the two nations abandon their habitual defamation of one another for political gain and consolidate their efforts to stop this crisis in its tracks.
