Chestnut Greitens: Where was Asia in debate?

Appeared in The New York Times, October 22, 2012

CISAC 2005 honors graduate Sheena Chestnut Greitens writes in The New York Times that Asia was given short shrift in the foreign affairs debate between President Barack Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney.

"Tonight’s foreign policy debate allotted less than 15 of its 90 minutes to Asia, a region with the world’s fastest economic growth rates and over half of its population. The only country receiving more than a passing mention was China, and even China was discussed only in economic terms."
