In the past two decades, People’s Republic of China- (PRC) based companies have invested $160 billion in Latin America. Twenty one of our neighbors there have pledged themselves to China’s “Belt and road Initiative.”

Creating and Maintaining non-Binary Strategic Foreign Policy The foreign policy of the United States of America is in danger of failing to innovate to meet the challenges of a developing, changing, and increasingly competitive world. The growing threat to developing tailored strategic foreign policy has grown from the academic channelization of two basic different schools of thought. These have evolved into binary sets of policies with only the slightest of deviations and nuances. Although some foreign policy language has started to address complexities, conversation is still incredibly stove piped into concepts of isolationism being associated with realism and global engagement with liberalism.
Nowadays, changes are taking place in political, economic, and social scenarios, and people increasingly adapt quickly to new models of social interaction. Even though these interactions may bring advantages, they also show problems and challenges to overcome. Human behaviors and the complexity of this interaction are some factors that show how leaders should be adaptive and able to be dynamic enough in order to provide positive outcomes. Because the information and the situational understanding change every day, it is essential to have leaders capable of responding to today’s dynamic operational environment.
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine—indirectly underwritten by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) and with the Western response hampered by the threat of nuclear war—highlights a world transitioning away from the institutional, economic, and ideological order that has prevailed since the end of World War II. The transition will have significant and grave implications, and its dynamics are likely to be uneven, with the U.S. and democratic, market-oriented states likely to be some of the most adversely affected.
