This friendship blossoms during the summer St. Barton. "Imagining the future, contemplating the past: the screen versions of 1984." In a new paper, Cato scholar Eric Gomez outlines three broad policy options for the United States, and recommends that the United States step down, incrementally and over the long-term, from its commitment to use military force to maintain Taiwan’s de facto independence. “Peace in the Taiwan Strait is an important American interest,” says Gomez, “but it must be weighed against the difficulty of maintaining credibility and the growing costs of deterrence failure.”
