WSJ story and chart about how "Chinese applicants flood U.S. graduate schools."
Of interest in the analysis:
The rate of growth in China is due in part to a concerted effort by some U.S. schools to attract Chinese studens. The thinking, say school administrators, is that international student who stay in academia will connect U.S. schools with new research partners, while those entering the corporate world may become clients of business schools' executive education programs.
Would that the Pentagon was this strategic in its thinking.
No, I'm not just talking about Chinese officers in our professional military educational institutions. I'm talking about purposefully seeking to raise future partners instead of indulging in this feel-good strategic "pivot" that is already being handled by arms exports to China's neighbors.
Amidst all that, we should be extending a hand - not a missile shield.
