friedman at the asia society

In addition to presenting insightful exhibitions on art and culture, the Asia Society also hosts engaging panel discussions between noted scholars and journalists on US-Asia relations.

Yesterday I just watched this discussion between Thomas Friedman of the NYT and Orville Schell of the Center of US-China Relations. Although China is a major focus of this talk, I found Friedman's arguments for why the past ten years was a "lost decade" as he calls it for America politically and economically to be very poignant and revealing.

If you have the time, it's well-worth watching.
