Death By China

Death By China

Dr. Greg Autry is an educator, writer, and serial technology entrepreneur. He is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Entrepreneurship at the University of Southern California where he researches innovation policy and the influences of government on emerging industries. Dr. Autry served on the Presidential NASA Agency Review Team and as the White House Liaison to NASA.  

Dr. Autry is the co-author, with Dr. Peter Navarro, of the book Death by China and a producer on the documentary film, Death by China, directed by Navarro and narrated by Martin Sheen. He authored An Analysis of U.S. National Competitive Advantage in Human Orbital Spaceflight Markets, for the FAA Office of Commercial Space Transportation (FAA AST). Dr. Autry’s articles on space, technology, and trade have been published in major news outlets including the San Francisco Chronicle, LA Times, Washington Times, and SpaceNews. He is also a regular Forbes Contributor.

Dr. Autry has twice testified to Congress on Chinese influence and industrial espionage and has also spoken at the Canadian Parliament, the Heritage Foundation, the National Association of Business Economists, The National Press Club, and the AIAA Space conference. He has been a keynote speaker on the economics of cyber espionage at several industry events hosted by FBI Counter Intelligence. 

Dr. Autry holds a BA in history from Cal Poly Pomona as well as an MBA and a Ph.D. (public policy and econ) from the Merage School of Business at UC Irvine.

The New Paradigm in Trade Policy

Greg Autry reviews the recent history of global trade, its impact on the U.S. economy and why the consensus on “free trade” has rapidly shifted. Dr. Autry offers insights into how a fascination with flawed economic theories and well-intentioned, but naïve trade policies first decimated America’s manufacturing base and then disrupted the American political landscape. He follows up with surprising insights into the future of U.S. Trade policy and its impact on the domestic and global economy. Dr. Autry coauthored the bestselling book, Death by China and worked for many years with White House Trade Adviser, Peter Navarro. Dr. Autry is informed, provocative and entertaining.  

Commercial Spaceflight Aims for the Stars

The commercial spaceflight industry is the most exciting business on Earth, or off of it! Entrepreneurs like Elon Musk, Richard Branson, and Jeff Bezos are throwing their massive fortunes into a new space race that will shape the future of humanity. The riveting stories and lessons he shares from firms like SpaceX, Virgin, and Blue Origin are the stuff of legends. These are business ventures where fortunes and lives are lost and the stakes are nothing less than the dominance of the solar system. Dr. Autry predicts that one of these space startups will be the first Trillion Dollar company! Greg Autry has researched the emerging commercial spaceflight industry for more than a decade and interacted with all the major players. His work is frequently published in both space media and the popular press. His expertise resulted in his recent appointment to the Agency Review Team at NASA and as the White House Liaison to the space agency.  

U.S. China Policy

Greg Autry coauthored the bestselling book, Death by China and worked for many years with White House Trade and Industrial Policy Director, Peter Navarro. Dr. Autry was a producer on the documentary film of the same name. In 2012, Donald Trump endorsed the film stating, “Death by China is right on. This important documentary depicts our problem with China with facts, figures, and insight. I urge you to see it.” Dr. Autry provides insight into the mechanisms by which Chinese Communist Party carefully engineered and managed the largest transfer of technology, wealth and power in human history. He offers insights into how America can and must deal with the “Frankenstein monster” that even President Nixon feared his open China policy might have unleashed.
