In 1972 Richard Nixon made the first U.S. presidential visit to China. From this one brief sojourn, a new relationship with the nation began. Over the course of these last few decades, China and the United States have become deeply interconnected. It is a complex love/hate relationship that has half of America infuriated and scared, and the other half hopeful because of the entrepreneurial possibilities in manufacturing through "cheap" labor. This relationship, as dysfunctional as it may seem, is one that will endure, complete with the growing pains and hard-learned lessons that are inevitable.
