A geoeconomic strategy for the new normal

  • Abhijnan Rej

The world is on the cusp of a “new normal”: A China that seems to be retreating from domestic economic growth while ascending internationally with the creation of new financial institutions and the internationalisation of the renminbi; a US on the path to full economic recovery following the Global Financial Crisis as evidenced by its decision to raise interest rates; dramatic Chinese initiatives to increase connectivity in Asia; and altered constellations of trade agreements in the Asia-Pacific, following the signing of the Trans-Pacific Partnership. This paper describes the interplay amongst all of these factors shaping the global new normal, as a way to sketch a geoeconomic strategy for India in the medium run. The study is situated in
academic literature on geoeconomics and game theory and – as a conclusion – describes the key components of a geoeconomic grand strategy for India.
