Chinese-American Corporations: Politics & Money


Critical Failure To Recognize That The Community and Business Have Different Interests

The most prominent example of a failure to distinguish Wall Street from Main Street can be found in the case of NAFTA and the exuberant rhetoric that promoted it. As predicted the profits did grow for the business sector, but as Ross Perot said there was that, "sucking sound of the jobs going South."
