Abstract : China's economic rise as a global superpower presents challenges and opportunities to itself and the United States in a strategic competition for global leadership. China has proven thus far the exception to the theory that no socialist system can survive its founding fathers principles and simultaneously prosper as an economic superpower. China's rise requires the attention, respect, cautious concern and cooperative effort of the United States to shape a world of global peace, prosperity and security. The United States and China have the opportunity perhaps for the first time in modern history to cooperate as global leaders and primary stakeholders to create a world of genuine global security and economic strength. I propose a DIMIER (Diplomatic, Information, Military, Intelligence, Economic, Resources) construct to serve as a broader framework for this research project to describe instruments of national power in a constantly changing, resource-constrained, geopolitical environment. This research project will study the possibilities of shared global leadership opportunities between the U.S. and China, or the demise of two great superpowers if each tries to go it alone.
