China produces 4 times the number of engineers that USA produces and it is more difficult to get into Peaking university than MIT in America. That is why there are more unicorns in China than in America..

Oh man, this guy is a so-called China expert? Lots of vague generalization, sterortyping and a lot of misinformation in his talk, I wonder how he was able to get away with it. Well, It is an American talking to Americans about China, I guess the audience doesn't really know any better.

XJLCA what I get from your comment is that you simply have a hard time believing in what the guy is sharing about china. And that I guess is you haven't been to china and spend any significant amount of time there in the past 10 years. I spent 5 of the past ten year working in china and I can testify that he is neither generalizing nor misrepresenting the situation in china for all of his talking points.

BRICSSCO First, you don’t know how much money I make, second, you don’t know how much he makes, so you are talking out of your stinky ass. Third, all the money in the world doesn’t automatically make you an expert on China. Last but not least, people like you who thinks the way you do, are usually lacking in both intellect and wealth. You are pathetic !

Using the word catch up😕😟😏 ,, absolutely China much much ahead when it comes to internet of things or digital,so stop using catch up word when you're so much behind😟😕😏

Mustafa Genius let's be honest. China is still behind. But China is catching up really, really fast. Places like Shanghai or Shenzhen by themselves are perhaps more advanced digitally, but much more work still needs to be done for the country as a whole. Give it a few more years.

Jonathan has some good points about China, and he seems to understand the way china works and holds a unprejudiced eye for it. The present, however, is not. It's a shame

XJLCA watch some other Asia society videos. Other experts are even worse

"unprejudiced" you say? you don't get the condescending tone he uses throughout the talk?

I don't agree. The presenter makes many points that reflects current US problems to China and seek advice. He might just be a bit unknowledgeable about china to raise any very difficult questions.
