Alexander makes two salient points: 1) as a matter of fact, China’s economy, when measured by the more reliable PPP (Purchasing Power Parity) rather than Nominal GDP, has already surpassed the United States by several trillions, and is the world’s largest manufacturer and exporter; 2) when the U.S. speaks of ‘the rules-based order,” it is referring not to international law, but to its own interpretation of its rights to invade, or impose unilateral sanctions against nations whose governments it doesn’t approve, in violation of the U.N. charter and decisions of its Security Council.
