Vying for Talent banner

Both the United States and China are vying to demonstrate which governance and economic system is best able to deliver results in the 21st century. Much of this competition hinges on economic performance, which is driven by innovation, pushed forward by talented individuals in both countries.

The Vying for Talent project, led by Ryan Hass and Jude Blanchette, is a collaboration between the Brookings Institution and the Center for Strategic and International Studies which explores the role human talent and education plays in the sprawling multi-domain competition between China and the United States.
