Abstract : The economics and national security of Asia is far more important to the United States today than it was two decades ago. The economic growth of Japan and South Korea makes these nations strong competitors with the United States in world markets as well as targets of Soviet efforts toward increased commerce, wider influence, and better relations. China lags Japan and Korea in development, but continues to modernize: its vast potential cannot be overlooked. Even conceding that NATO has achieved victory in the Cold War in Europe, these countries-China, Japan, and South Korea-could become a new and different front line competition between the United States and the Soviet Union
