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.
