Australia in the Asian Century. Economic dependence amidst increasing strategic uncertainty
If Australia wishes to have a future in ‘the Asian Century’, the country must take more action than it does now. Currently, the country relies on the US for its security, yet it also is increasingly economically dependent on China. Professor Christopher B. Roberts sees the Chinese as a threat and calls upon Australia to protect its economy and increase its military expenditure. Notably, Robert also advises the Australians to study Asian societies and languages for better engagement with the region.
