This is the best analysis to date of the three-way economic and security game among China, other countries, and global market forces. With trenchant policy recommendations, it should be read by all those interested in China's impact on the world. Dennis Blair, former US Director of National Intelligence and Commander in Chief, Pacific By All Means Necessary is a valuable corrective to the hype-both positive and negative- that typically accompanies accounts of China's global search for natural resources. Economy and Levi combine an understanding of Chinese politics and economic policy with a detailed knowledge of different global markets, from oil to ore. The result is a myth-busting book that offers insights and advice for policymakers, business leaders, and anyone interested in China and the world. Anne-Marie Slaughter, President, the New America Foundation If we are to intelligently manage China's resurgence, there are few areas more deserving of our attention than China's voracious global appetite for natural resources. In this well-written and insightful new study the authors vividly limn how China's restless quest for rejuvenation is simultaneously upsetting the old world order and demanding that the other countries develop new ways of understanding and interacting with it. For anyone wishing to come to terms with this aspect of China's rise, and the policy choices it raises for countries like the US, this is the go-to read. Orville Schell, Arthur Ross Director, The Center on US-China Relations, Asia Society Economy and Levi have provided a compelling assessment of how supercharged and commodity-intensive growth in China has led to an unprecedented global buying spree for resources as varied as oil and gas, industrial metals and rare earth minerals, ores and coal, as well as farmland... They argue convincingly that Beijing's motivations are not nefarious and the global system will find ways to curb feared excesses, even as the Middle Kingdom moves to secure the territorial seas around it and build a significant naval presence. Edward L. Morse, Head of Global Commodities Research, Citigroup In By all means necessary, Elizabeth Economy and Michael Levi take a comprehensive look at the implications outside Chinaas borders of its growing resource quest from minerals to water and grain. Tim Summers, International Affairs

Balanced insights, based on real expertise and sound research 30. Januar 2014
Von Casey M. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Wisely, this work veers far from an endorsement of alarmist rhetoric towards China, as well as of complacency in U.S. policy towards its largest trade partner. A well-written narrative of China's acquisition and application of power in the current arena makes for an interesting read, and a sharp analysis of where China stands in the world today.

Not without some repetition of history and analysis well-known to experts, new material and smart thinking make this a really fresh look on a familiar issue. Economy/Levi offer policymakers, analysts, and general readers with a framework for thinking about China (and about how the U.S. would do well respond) that I'm happy I now have lodged in my bookcase.

A well-written, nuanced treatise on China's increasing influence 5. Februar 2014
Von Whitney L. Johnson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I echo Anne-Marie Slaughter's blurb: "By All Means Necessary is a valuable corrective to the hype that typically accompanies accounts of China's global search for natural resources."

I was especially taken by Economy/Levi's scrutiny of how China's quest will impact various stakeholders, whether resource consumers, owners, investors, or heads of state.

Policymakers and pundits are suggesting this is must-read book, but for the layperson looking to simply better understand geopolitics, you can't go wrong.

Highly recommend.

A well done summary of China's thirst for resources! 23. März 2014
Von Dan K. Eberhart - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This book seeks to answer two basic questions, which it does well. (It starts with a brief discussion of Japan's quest for natural resources in the '80's and '90's and the ramifications of that.) The first question is how is China's thirst for resources from abroad changing China. The second question is how is China's same thirst for resources is affecting the world at large.

I learned many things from this book. One of them is that China has long avoided UN Security Council Resolutions against other countries. (In other words, they don't care what a country's political leaders do unlike the US, IMF or World Bank). Another is the extent to which the US supports open sea lanes to protect commerce around the globe. (The book asserts that China simply does not have the capabilities to do this currently.) Finally, there is a fascinating discussion of the geopolitics of water rights.

"By All Means Necessary" concludes that China is slowly becoming more trusting of international markets and customs (that are largely US designed or enforced) as it rapidly becomes a more significant consumer of the world's natural resources.

At times, the author's could use more statistics to support their conclusions. However, the book covers a lot of ground and does a good job of it.

Exploding the Myths 16. Februar 2014
Von James D. Zirin - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a must read for anyone interested in tracking China's trajectory in the world. With explosive 10% annual economic growth over the past two decades that is 10 times that of the industrial revolution, China has gone shopping in Africa, South America and the Mid-East looking for oil, rare earth minerals, ores and other natural resource assets with a voracity that cannot escape attention. Is China's seemingly insatiable lust for resources state directed or simply the outgrowth of a market economy? Has China shown corporate social responsibility in its operations in resource rich countries? Does China's aspiration present a national security threat to the US or other developed nations? How is China seeking to protect the sea lanes over which it brings its acquired resources home? How does the quest for resources relate to increased tensions in the East and South China Seas? Grounded in impeccable research, policy experts Elizabeth Economy and Michael Levi present a polished and convincing argument that China's resource quest has changed the world--and changed China as well.

How China Does Business with the World, For Better AND Worse 3. März 2014
Von Alastair Browne - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Elizabeth Economy and Michael Levi have done their homework, seeing not only China as they do business in the rest of the world, but also on the world's view of China, especially in developing countries with resources.
First, it is easy to see why China needs these resources, and farmland, from other countries. They have a population of 1.3 billion people and beyond the prosperity of what you see in Shanghai and Beijing, the huge majority are still impoverished and needs to move out of their position of extreme poverty. Moving these people up are also good business for both private and state owned companies, as we shall see.
China goes to Africa and South America to mine their resources and buy land to grow food to ship back to China, and to please the inhabitants of these countries, they improve their society, building a modern infrastructure, with roads, bridges, schools, government buildings, even rebuilding villages and towns to provide for the residents. This is clever, China becomes a favored country in that part of the world and also a model country for others to follow, if they do want to remain in good standing. However, China does this only in countries that can give them something in return, such as resources.
But things aren't necessarily what they seem, for there is a downside. When China started all this, they mimicked their business behavior back home, meaning a disregard for the environment, poor working conditions, an elite system where the Chinese would live luxuriously and have high positions while the natives lived only on the essentials, and yes, this has stirred resentment. Some Chinese, especially in Africa and the Middle East, have become victims of terrorists and refused to do business in some places for fear of encountering them.
There are also cases where, in China itself, they would monopolize rivers that flow into neighboring countries, leaving them with very little water to use downstream stirring up resentment. Many Asian countries are weary of China, Mongolia being one of them.
Many countries have started to catch on, and, in spite of what benefits the Chinese have to offer, have turned down offers from China and went with other countries such as Canada and Australia. Others do not want to sell farmland to China, in the case emergencies such as droughts and famines come up, and others will let China mine resources provided that they are the minority shareholder.
All this hype in the press about China has been greatly exaggerated, and they are no more successful than any other country doing international business, and they have had failures and setbacks. There has also been corruption and bribery in buying favors for mineral rights from other countries.
This is not to say that China is failing, far from it; nor is this a book about China's decline, it isn't. What it is saying is that China's honeymoon with developing countries is over, and will have to compete with other countries on a level playing field.
They are doing just that, and they are learning from their mistakes. They are also learning to apply responsibility in business both home and abroad. They have reconsidered use of their rivers for other countries downstream, improved working conditions, becoming more conscious about the environment, and are learning about fair business practices.
The U.S. is also mentioned here, especially military wise. As the U.S. becomes more energy independent, they are not going to withdraw from the Persian Gulf or the sea lanes in Indonesia anytime soon. China does not have the navy to replace them, and will not be in that position anytime soon, so China, as well as the world, needs the U.S. for protection of their sea lanes, whether they like it or not. There is mention, in detail, of the South China Sea and why China wants control of it so much; it has valuable natural resources starting with oil and natural gas.
This book does portray a realistic view of China and its business with the rest of the world. It is not going to dominate economically, but it's not going to decline, either. They have made their mistakes, are learning from them, and are seeking new opportunities; but they do have the rest of the world with which to compete, and they have to compete on a level playing field.
