USA 1: China, Trade and Human Rights

USA  1: China, Trade and Human Rights

This program analyzes America's trade relations with China in the 1990s. The Chinese economy was once state controlled but now is driven by private enterprise, and China's free market has made their economy the third largest in the world, as is explained by Haiching Zhao, a member of the National Council on Chinese Affairs. Clips of the pro-democracy demonstrations in Tiananmen Square on June of 1989 illustrate why the annual renewal of "most-favored-nation" status to China is so controversial, as then President Bill Clinton discusses during a Presidential debate in 1992. Brian Peter Falk reports on the controversy from Washington D.C., and Lawrence Clarkson of the Boeing Corporation gives his opinions. Sidney Jones from Human Rights Watch-Asia, and Lane Kirkland, then president of the AFL/CIO, speak of the abuses of human rights, and the Dalai Lama states that China's human rights movement has been minimal and that there is still a long way to go. Chinese Democracy Leader Wang Juntao was a Chinese prisoner for 5 years and sees his release as only a public relations' gesture. Other notables who discuss this issue include Nobel Prize winning political advisor Henry Kissinger, exiled Chinese journalist Liu Binyan, John Ackerly from the International Campaign for Tibet, and Morton Halperin, then a member of the US National Security Council. 01/12DE JSCA 30 min.
