Both China and the U.S. are aiming to decouple technologically from one another. But is it practically possible or even desirable? To answer that question, YCW spoke with Nigel Inkster CMG, Senior Adviser for Cyber Security and China at the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) and author of the highly praised recent book The Great Decoupling: China, America and the Struggle for Technological Supremacy (UK: Hurst, 2020).
