I would like to know whether this study addressed American business perspectives (vs. general public opinion), i.e. US managers, US businessman, US entrepreneurs etc. In my management consulting career in Asia and US, I find that this is a key area to be addressed in order for relations and trade to flourish. Thanks.

I remember the hysteria in the 90s about Japan surpassing the US...???

Great segment. One small correction: That should be University of California Hastings College of the Law (no "at"; it's in San Francisco).

New York Times articles on China tend to be 99% negative why is that ?

Chinese viewpoints are often whipped up to a frenzied attitude by the Chinese government and its organs. It is not unlike the way Fox news creates an information bubble for its viewers .One can argue that the US media does the same but many Chinese attitudes are almost hysterical when it comes to Tibet, Taiwan and other issues. Most Americans are not that emotional about China, as Chinese are emotional about these issues

China will never surpass anyone until they have the rule of law. Too many scandals on food, environment, and the bootlegging of property.
