HOW TO STOP A WAR, PART III: MANUFACTURING
- SECONDARY INPUTS TO PRODUCTION
- MANUFACTURING SECURITY
Why Read: This week’s issue is the third in a series covering the threat of aggression in Asia by the People’s Republic of China, global economic consequences, and how to achieve credible deterrence.
Author’s Note: This series seeks to identify the case for action across the world for a greater demonstration of deterrence to the People’s Republic of China (PRC). This work is not intended to be a comprehensive assessment of the state of readiness of the armed forces of the countries discussed, for which there are far more qualified authors. Nor does it seek to “get ahead” of US or allied efforts here or intend to release confidential or classified information about these topics. The point, rather, is to outline ways in which greater deterrence can be both secured and highlighted in order to prevent the PRC from acting under the impression that a kinetic war in Asia is in its interest, with resulting disastrous consequences for the global population, economy, and human progress.
