It used to be US


Thomas Friedman in Hong Kong "It used to be us"

We live in a period when the global balance of power seems to be shifting immensely. Hardly a day passes without some news organization or pundit talking about whether or not China is going to be able or willing to bail out the economies of Europe or the United States. 


For decades, the United States was the major global and economic power. Now, many in the US are wondering what on earth has happened to them and their country? In his new book "That used to be us", written with Michael Mandelbaum, Thomas Friedman lays out some home truths. Recently Friedman presented his ideas in Hong Kong. We caught up with him during his visit.
