Friday Movie Night - The Chinese Are Coming!

hot buttered popcorn It's Friday Night! Party Time!   Time to relax, put your feet up on the couch, lay back, and watch some detailed videos on economic policy!

 

Tonight is a BBC two part documentary, on China and their path to becoming the new World Superpower.

 

The Chinese are Coming!

 

Traveling across three continents, Justin Rowlatt investigates the spread of Chinese influence around the planet and asks what the world will be like if China overtakes America as the world's economic superpower. In the first of two films, he embarks on a journey across Southern Africa to chart the extraordinary phenomenon of Chinese migration to Africa, and the huge influence of China on the development of the continent.

The Chinese are coming, yup, they sure are.

Business of China is business

Great film! Thank you

I see the truth in what I read recently:

"The business of the US is war, and the business of China is business."

I worry about these networks too. Why they don't make their videos available online and show ads, like regular TV and get revenues is beyond me. Clearly EPers are that niche audience who will watch their entire reports and I don't think anyone minds these great documentaries making money for their efforts, at least I would be fine with them doing it that way.

Anywho, the BBC puts on some great stuff and it seems our Frontline, needs some funds.
