I am writing to share a new work, a “think piece” about what is at stake for Latin America (and the U.S.) as the PRC expands its economic, political and military relationships in the region.  I have been impacted by the “false debate” between those who argue that the PRC is struggling against the US in Latin America and elsewhere, and those who insist the PRC does not seek to impose a system on other countries.  In this essay, I attempt to make the case that, while the PRC may not be explicitly seeking to impose an alternative political-economic order on the region, its engagement, in pursuit of its own economic and other interests has a transformative impact on the political and economic dynamics of the region, just as grave as if it were explicitly seeking to impose an alternate order on the region.  I argue that the US has yet to convince the region that there is a struggle to worry about, let alone lead the effort to protect the Western institutions and values at stake.
