Trade with China
Next week, the House of Representatives votes on trade relations with China -- whether or not to grant permanent normal trading status. Meanwhile, China has taken the historic step of asking for U.S. assistance in resolving the irreconcilable differences between the governments of Taiwan and China. A panel talks about the complicated mix of economics and politics behind the debate, and how Americans may be affected by the vote in Congress.
