Abstract : The international environment of the new millennium marks a significant departure from that of the post-World War II period. With the fall of the Soviet Union, the United States became the most influential state in the international system. As Chinas strength and influence continues to grow, the likelihood of a return to multi-polarity, with a security and affluence peer to the United States is not an unreasonable prediction. Therefore, creating a framework to base an understanding of the current relationship between two like states is valuable for informing subsequent actions, whereby the instruments of national power are employed to balance the combined effect of mutual security and mutual affluence, while limiting the negative influences from external factors, to achieve sustained stability
