The Realignment: 348 | Is Taiwan Next?: Part II with Elbridge Colby

February 28, 2023

Elbridge Colby, co-founder of The Marathon Initiative, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Strategy and Force Development, and author of The Strategy of Denial: American Defense in an Age of Great Power Conflict, returns to The Realignment to follow up on last year’s episode on Taiwan. Elbridge and Marshall discuss whether the U.S. can “walk and chew gum at the same time,” what a “Twelve-Step” program for revitalizing the defense industrial base looks like, and how the U.S. can deter conflict in the Asia-Pacific region.
