In 2001, China joined the World Trade Organization with the strong support of a Democratic President and Republican Congress. Before the ink was dry on this free trade agreement, China began flooding U.S. markets with illegally subsidized exports while the big multinational companies that had lobbied heavily for the agreement rapidly accelerated the off shoring of American jobs to China. Today, as a result of the biggest shell game in American history, China has stolen millions of our jobs, corporate profits are soaring, and we now owe over $3 trillion to the world's largest totalitarian nation. This film is about how that happened... and why the best jobs program for America is trade reform with China. Written by
I'm docking one point because of the preachy / hyperbolic graphics.
However, it does go over the facts that seem very well researched.
Including Chinese professors and experts--who know better than some of these Chinese nationalists who are trying to badly-rate/badly-review this documentary.
And I'm glad it doesn't try to work so hard to focus on the debt problem as it's the least terrible part of the Chinese-US problems.
You should watch this to see how China's air pollution is destroying the climate--how China's lax labor laws allow for all sorts of human rights abuses--how nations are turning a blind eye to the world's largest totalitarian state that is building a massive military--how US corporations choose to cooperate and comply with China to cause many problems in the world.
This problem in the end will affect us all--not just Americans.
