Lecture Title: The Myth of the "China Century"

To those who've already written off the next hundred years as the "China Century," Jeremy Haft, China business veteran and author of "All the Tea in China,"discusses why Western companies are far from licked and even have a competitive advantage. China is hamstrung by economic and cultural challenges that hinder its ability to compete globally, and as China tries to midwife the largest middle class in the world, local sources simply can't keep up. That is why China is America's fastest growing export market. And why, by capitalizing on our competitive edge and tapping into China's demand for our goods and services, the U.S. has a once-in-a-century windfall opportunity to create jobs and build value here at home. ---Jeremy Haft
