Here’s another PBS Frontline segment that touches on a number of the things we have or will cover regarding China. It’s titled, â€œIs Wal-Mart Good For America?â€ (look for the Watch the Full Program Online note and click on it).
True, the segment is now a few years old; yet even today, in the year 2011 and soon to be 2012, we continue to debate the issues raised in this film.
The first part of the segment addresses Wal-Mart’s business in the US, but then the documentary shifts to China and a more global perspective. The segment also visits Shenzhen, an area we will visit, and covers the supply-side of the China/Wal-Mart equation. The segment is very helpful in understading one of the many faces of the China-US business relationship.
