(p.1) Introduction Oil, Iron, Mangoes, and Cash
Chinese Economic Statecraft

William J. Norris

Cornell University Press

This book examines how China uses economics as a tool of national power in the twenty-first century. More specifically, it assesses the conditions under which China is more successful or less successful in its pursuit of economic statecraft. It explores economic statecraft in the context of contemporary Chinese grand strategy to show how China uses firms to pursue its foreign policy and other strategic goals. It also considers economics as it relates to national security as well as China's global search for strategic raw materials such as oil, China's use of economic statecraft in its relations with Taiwan, and China's sovereign wealth funds as an avenue of state control. Finally, it explains why the Chinese state can or cannot control the behavior of commercial actors that play important roles in economic statecraft.

Keywords:   economics, national power, China, economic statecraft, grand strategy, foreign policy, national security, raw materials, Taiwan, sovereign wealth funds
