339. Time for the United States to Learn From China
Readers of my blog that introduces Dr. Dave Wang's research (王小良博士）know that the founders of the United States made their efforts to use positive elements from Chinese civilization to build a new nation. It would be wrong if one thinks that the founders picked up everything from China. Yes, it is no doubt that Chinese civilization is a great civilization.
However, it is not right to state that everything from China is great. That's why Dr. Dave Wang demonstrates to us that the founders applied the positive elements from Chinese civilization for the purpose of creating a new nation in the world over 200 years ago. Recently I found Elizabeth Economy's online article, Time for the United States to learn from China.
I am not so sure when the time for the United States to learn from China is/was? For my readers, it was clear that during the founding era the founders and other colonists of the North American Colonies learned a lot from China. Dr. Elizabeth Economy is the C.V. Starr senior fellow and director for Asia studies at the Council on Foreign Relations. You'd better to read her article to find out when the United State should learn from China. It is very interesting.
