Competitive Connectivity - OBOR vs AAGC

Here's a new buzzword for you - "competitive connectivity" - as exemplified by the emerging rivalry between China's OBOR and the Indo-Japanese response, AAGC:


If your trade route is the better one, then you get a bigger slice of the economic pie - but if somebody else's trade route is better, then you get squeezed out.

Unfortunately, the Russians will be siding against us this time, because they stand to benefit from OBOR.

So if Orwell was right, we must be Oceania, and we're now at war with Eurasia, while getting help from North America.
