Chimerica:  a term coined to describe the current U.S.-China relationship.  This link describes a view that sees Chimerica as similar to the Britain-Germany relationship of the early twentieth century.   Conclusion:  relationship is not sustainable and the US and China are on a collision course.   Another writer sees Chimerica as similar to an America-Britain relationship.  Conclusion:  China's ambition to revive its previous glory as the world power does not necessarily lead to clashes with America.

Let's hope the latter writer is correct.
