The Middle Way

About

Middle Way Image

The Middle Way: America and China is a program which allows three global thinkers with different experiences to share their perspectives about the intricacies of the complex U.S.- China relationship. Amassing a wealth of experience, the three have lived and worked on both sides of the world (and mid-way where the program is broadcast from Honolulu) and they have amazingly found the people of both countries share more similarities than differences.

As we push forward into the 21st Century, these global thinkers enlighten audiences with their experiences and perspectives about the world’s most important relationship – the U.S. and China. The relationship is more than just the world’s two leading economies – the lives and livelihood of people globally are affected daily by the interactions between the two superpowers. Share in with what’s going on daily and weekly between the world’s two largest economies in this ever-changing, complex, and intricate relationship. The U.S.-China relationship, something we all need to know and learn more about, is here bi-weekly on The Middle Way: America and China.
