China’s Stranglehold Over the US With Rare Earths

From batteries in electric vehicles to the colors in our smartphones, to our most advanced military weapons—rare earth and critical minerals are at the heart of our modern life.

In this special report, we look at what China’s dominance in the world’s rare earth means for us, how that impacts every sector of society from civilian to defense, and what the United States can do now to turn the tide.

Joining us to help shed light on the topic are Ann Bridges, author of “Groundbreaking! America’s New Quest for Mineral Independence” and “Rare Mettle“; Rep. Pete Stauber (R-Minn.); and China economic analyst Antonio Graceffo.
