After decades of "constructive engagement" an approach that has facilitated China's rise, even as the country has violated international rules and norms the United States is now seeking active and concrete countermeasures.Even as China defied world trade rules, forced companies to share their intellectual property and flexed its military muscles, the U.S. held onto the naive hope that, as China became increasingly prosperous, it would naturally pursue economic and even political liberalization.Instead, China established itself at the center of global manufacturing value chains, as countless companies moved their production to the country including from the U.S. while keeping its markets, politics and people under tight control.Over the last couple of years, however, the China policy debate in the U.S. has begun to reflect more realism, with a growing number of voices recognizing China's ambition to supplant its American benefactor as the leading global superpower.The U.S. finally called China what it is: a "revisionist power" and "strategic competitor". To be sure, this does not mean that the U.S. is going to adopt an overtly confrontational China policy.
