Your Call 042009 A New Deal With China?

Is it time for a new deal with China? On the next Your Call we'll discuss new visions of a trans-Pacific economic arrangement. We are continuing our series on creating the economy we want (not just complaining about the one we have). Can we make out the broad strokes of an economic relationship that helps China create the tens of millions of new jobs they need each year, supports the American working people and does both in an ecologically sustainable way? Send us an email at or join us live at 11 a.m. Can the relationship between the U.S. and China change in a way that helps workers on both sides of the Pacific? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
