Jim McGregor, the Chairman of APCO China and former Wall Street Journal Bureau Chief has been working in China since 1990. When he says, “The US and China are at a fundamental turning point,” it pays to listen. McGregor looks at the idea of a trade war differently than most. While the trade aspects are important, he sees that the US and China, “Are now in fierce competition for all the technologies of the future.” In this Business Class episode, Dick Drobnick sits down with Jim McGregor in Shanghai and goes deep on the ‘Made in China 2025’ plan and how this fundamentally pits the world’s two largest economies directly against each other.
