China's Industrial Machine



China's economic rise is arguably the biggest story of the early twenty first century.

Journalist James Fallows delivers the best concise snapshot that I have heard of China's economic machinery and its integration into the world economy in this interview on the NPR program Fresh Air. Definitely worth a twenty minute listen.

"The Pearl River Delta of Guangdong province (the old Canton region), just north of Hong Kong... might have a manufacturing workforce larger than America's," Fallows notes in his Atlantic Monthly piece that he discusses in the interview.

Fallows also has a blog on the Atlantic Monthly website.
