This article is the final part in a three-part series examining the United States (US) investment war with China and focuses on Washington’s war against US foreign direct investment (FDI) in China. It first details the forms of the US war, which include negative rhetoric about US FDI in China, the US-China trade war, and efforts to encourage companies to return to the US. It then considers the political and economic costs and benefits of these diverse tactics, showing that the calculus rarely is straightforward. It stresses the need for a systematic analysis of the facts to make sound policy.
