Today I was able to conduct a short webcam interview with Scott Paul, Executive Director of the Alliance for American Manufacturing. The occasion is this week's Us-China Strategic and Economic Dialog taking place in Beijing. This dialog is a series of meetings between top-level officials of both governments on a number of issues. Secretaries Geithner and Clinton are leading the US delegtation. The trade imbalance between the US and China is one of the top issues being discussed.
Scott has posted a video at the AAM manufacturethis blog, titled THE 15 NUMBERS YOU NEED TO KNOW, which discusses AAM's 15 Numbers You Need to Know before the U.S.-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue in Beijing next week. (Example: 2.4 million: Number of U.S. jobs lost or displaced due to U.S.-China trade imbalance, 2001-2008.)
Here is our interview with Scott Paul:
