Is industrial cyber-espionage the biggest threat to U.S.-China relations?

  • Yes, and it is ignored

    This is an important but somewhat understated issue. The fact that hackers from foreign nations, state sponsored or not, can get into our information systems easily is a bad thing. It's even worse that we refuse to sternly address these nations on this topic and barely respond to the attacks as if their not a problem. Frequently, our method of trying to stop the attacks is to say "don't do that". It's an underaddressed and very pressing issue.

  • Not at all

    I think there are more important things that would come between the US and China relations. This is not a huge threat, a huge threat would be North Korea doing something that US disagrees with and China agrees with. Nuclear power would be a bigger threat to the relations of the US and China. This is a non-issue.

  • No, there is a larger threat.

    The biggest threat to U.S.-China relations is the balance between our two economies. So much of our economic infrastructure is based in China, due to our over extensive outsourcing. This has kick started their economy, while leaving ours stagnant. If the United States does not find a way to stabilize it's economy, China will take the seat as sole superpower, based on money alone.
