PF February 2013 Proposed Topics

The TOPIC AREA for the month of February is, "China / U.S. Relations." The two resolutions from which advisors may choose are as follows:

Resolved: On balance, the rise of China is beneficial to the interests of the United States.

Resolved: On balance, China's increasing influence in Eastern and South-East Asia is a threat to the interests of the United States.

At first examination, two equally appealing proposed resolutions.  I'll have more to say about these soon.

Ok, as it turns out I had nothing more to say since I enjoyed a well-deserved time of relaxation over the Christmas and New Year holidays.  By now you should know, the first resolution was selected.  Click here for analysis.

    1. You must have been reading mind because I was just thinking about writing it up. We have a huge tournament this weekend so I will try to post it before then.

  2. I think the pro side should think about money more, and the con side should think about the counterbalance. For example... The rise of China might over power Taiwan, which cause a nuclear war
