"By a new cold war, I mean an all out, perhaps generation long, global economic, military and ideological struggle that could lead to a bifurcation of large parts of the world into a pro-U.S. bloc and a pro-China bloc with significant numbers of countries caught in between," said Darren Tay from the Asia country risk team at the data research firm.

The split between the world's two largest economies would likely force Southeast Asian countries to take sides, he said, even though they would want to be "pragmatic" and remain friendly with both countries for as long as possible.

"Being in Asia, the pull from China's gravity in terms of its size and its influence would be hard to resist," said Tay during the firm's Asia Macroeconomic Quarterly Update virtual seminar on Monday.

The Cold War was a period of geopolitical tension between the Soviet Union and the United States and their respective allies, the Eastern Bloc and the Western Bloc, after World War II.

Chinese foreign minister warns U . S . against taking the countries ‘ to the brink of a new Cold War ’. The United States should abandon its “wishful thinking about changing China ” and stop pushing the two countries “ to the brink of a new Cold War ,” Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Sunday

"That's not a knockdown argument to say that they will all side with China in that case," he added. "But there is that risk to consider."

Opposing values

Explaining what he meant by an "ideological stand-off" between the U.S. and China, Tay referred to a Chinese Communist Party memo circulated in 2013 that identified constitutional democracy and freedom of the press as some threats to the party's authority. He pointed out that these are what the West considers universal values.

Tay said the technology sector has already become a battleground for the U.S. and China, and is likely to see the largest divide if relations do not improve.

In recent months, Washington has made it more and more difficult for Huawei to purchase semiconductors needed to manufacture its products. The Trump administration has also tried to remove Beijing-based video-sharing app TikTok from U.S. app stores, though a U.S. court eventually blocked that order temporarily.

Growing mistrust

But aggressive foreign policy moves such as blacklists and bans by both sides will not be the only thing tearing the countries apart — a lack of trust will also play a part, Tay said.

"It's easy to imagine an American consumer not trusting a Chinese tech company to be scrupulous in terms of safeguarding their privacy, and likewise, for a Chinese consumer with regard to U.S. tech companies," Tay said.

That's especially likely if the U.S.-China relationship worsens and there's a lot of mistrust "not just between the government but between the people of these two major world powers," he added.

Consumers from both sides already appear to be boycotting products from each other, as nationalism rose after the coronavirus pandemic broke out. A report by Deutsche Bank Research in May said a survey found that 41% of Americans will not buy "Made in China" products again, while 35% of Chinese will not buy "Made in USA" goods.

Bill O’Brien brushes off questions about job security after 0-4 start .
O’Brien better start getting things turned around quickly. Sunday’s defeat to a lackluster Minnesota Vikings team was the worst loss the Texans have had yet. O’Brien’s double duty as general manager also means he’s on the hook for criticism of the team’s roster building. The DeAndre Hopkins-David Johnson trade looks worse with each passing week, and the team’s inability to protect star quarterback Deshaun Watson is alarming.
