In the first of a three part interview Bill Resnick interviews China scholar Richard Smith on how China became a world economic and political power, able to challenge U.S. world supremacy, and thus fulfill its historical destiny as they see it--to lead the world.  For more, see these articles by Richard Smith: China's Communist-Capitalist Ecological Apocalypse; Climate Crisis, the Deindustrialization Imperative, and the Jobs Versus Environment Dilemma; The Failure of Green Solutions to Solve Environmental Problems; and Last Polar Bear Arrested at Wall Street.
