Taught by Professor Paul Robbins | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

The Professor lauds China as a very successful economic power. But what he does not say is that China's growth for 20+ years has been largely due to their success at *stealing* from $500 billion to a trillion dollars worth of intellectual property, per year, from the US and from all over the world.. See https://www.dni.gov/index.php/ncsc-home for what's been made public. I retired from US counterintelligence, TS/SCI/+++.
