44] –On Thurs., Dec. 8 at noon ET, the question will be
asked: How Much Does China Really Spend on Defense [sic]? In recent decades,
estimates of Chinese defense [sic] spending have varied wildly. Recognizing
that market exchange rates cannot provide the best picture of Chinese defense
[sic] spending on their own, analysts began using a blend of purchasing
power parity and market exchange rates to represent Chinese military
expenditures. With no agreed‐on methodology, however, estimates have ranged
from roughly $250 billion to near $600 billion. Since the Defense[sic] Department has identified China as the
“pacing challenge” for the United States, the size and shape of China’s
military has significant implications for the U.S. defense [sic] budget,
U.S.-Chinese relations, and the future of security in Asia. The panel will
engage in a wide‐ranging discussion of how best to represent China’s
growing military power. Come to the Cato Institute, 1000 Massachusetts Ave. NW,
WDC and hear Eric Heginbotham, MIT; Frederico Bartels, Pantheon Integrated
Solutions; and Justin Logan, CATO Institute. RSVP at https://www.cato.org/events/how-much-does-china-really-spend-defense.

Action on January 6 on Thursdays from 4 to 5 PM ET. This January 6 marks the second anniversary

for a criminal conspiracy to overturn an election they knew they’d lost. Join

democracy. Go to
