Definitely have a lot of sympathy for Jim Fallows fending off phone calls from angry Americans on a Tuesday morning.
C-SPAN Update after presidential visit, November 17, 2009
During the 2009 call in discussion, Fallows has to fight off many angry phone calls about lost jobs and a “Rising China”. Overall, the discussion is much more grim than during the 2007 presidential visit to China.
C-SPAN Update after presidential visit, October 21 2007
In 2007, there were some discussions about the size of China’s foreign currency reservers, some concerns about job losses, and questions about teaching english in China. Overall, the conversation was far more upbeat in 2007 than in 2009.
Interestingly, Fallows has a total of 55 C-SPAN appearances over the years. Take a look.
Fallows also has some books that are well worth reading. Personally can’t wait until Apple’s new mobile book device is released so that I can sign up for The Atlantic and The Economist directly in a mobile print edition. Would also be great to have mobile versions of Vogue and GQ for easy reading.
