Today on Your Call: What do we need to know about China?

On today's Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Ann Lee, author of “What the U.S. Can Learn from China: An Open-Minded Guide to Treating Our Greatest Competitor as Our Greatest Teacher.” Chinese workers are currently protesting over compensation and working conditions. How did China end up being the second largest economy in the world? Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org. What do you make of China’s place in the world? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:
