China will replace us as the worlds greatest power. They will do to us what we did to Great Britain. We are so short sighted that we are willing to make a country ruled by a despot the richest country in the world. If we had had any brains, we would have given China the right time!

See the Times article this week on GE agreeing to share jet engine technology (!) Why is China even in this position? Because we gave it to them! America has given away the future to the Chinese in exchange for low wage workers FOR OUR FACTORIES IN CHINA MAKING PRODUCTS WE INVENTED!!! I remember the chinese on bicycles. Now, thanks to our business leader's shortsightedness (with help from unions' overreach) the ball is in their court. Short term gain for corporations = long term gain for China.

Please ask your guest about the Chinese currency and inflation. Also ask about the trade deficit.

How is the new Republican Congress going to affect trade relations with China?
