U.S.-China relations expert Dr. Andy (John) Anderson on Tuesday told members of the Decorah Rotary Club the US-China relationship is at an all-time low.

Anderson is an Assistant Professor of Management and John Deere Faculty Fellow in the University of Northern Iowa (UNI) Business School.

In a visit to Decorah, Anderson noted escalating economic tension,  a shift in the world model, and lack of equal access to markets as a few of the reasons for the decline in relations between the two countries.

Prior to teaching at UNI, Anderson taught optimization modeling in the MBA program at Drake University and Operations and Supply Chain Management courses in the undergraduate and MBA programs at China Agricultural University (Beijing). He has published articles in The China Quarterly, Asia Pacific Journal of Management, Journal of World Business, and International Business Review, among others. Anderson also actively performs new product and supply chain development consulting projects and founded a non-profit that focuses on strengthening female educational access in Tibetan regions of Qinghai, China.
