Abstract: The rise of the United States as a world superpower is one of the most influential events in the 20th century. Especially after the Second World War, the US dominance of the international order has exerted a long-lasting and profound impact on the current global economic and political landscape. As a late comer, China is following a pursuant development model and is experiencing swift economic progress in the course of rejuvenation of the nation. Against such a background, it is of great significance for China to draw on the experience of the United States in terms of its strategy for risk prevention and control. In seeking a commanding height in the world, the United States has made repeated efforts to strengthen its economic power, improve the credit standard of US dollar in global trade, make relevant adjustment of its foreign strategy, reconstruct international trade and governance system and actively respond to and control all kind of risks.
