The late Elizabeth Kübler-Ross described the five stages of grief - denial, anger, bargaining, acceptance, and depression. Her model applies to America's response to the rise of Chna as a global power. For the past decade, we have been in denial. We couldn't believe a country that for generations has been a byword for poverty could compete with us. With the election of Donald Trump in 2016, we have transitioned to anger. As matters stand, we will be bargaining before long.
