Contrary to various online accounts, RAND is not advocating war against China or any nation to advance recovery of the U.S. economy. The notion that RAND has generated such an analysis is simply a rumor, with no foundation in fact. We do not know how those who generated the rumor arrived at their conclusion.
RAND is a nonprofit institution that helps improve policy and decisionmaking through research and analysis. Our recent research on China, Afghanistan and Iraq may be downloaded at http://www.rand.org/hot_topics/. Our research on national security can be found at http://www.rand.org/research_areas/national_security/. RAND is strictly nonpartisan. Our core values are quality and objectivity. We do not advocate positions.
