If you look carefully at how things are actually made in China - from shirts to toys, apple juice to oil rigs - you see a reality that contradicts every widely-held notion about the world's so-called economic powerhouse. From the inside looking out, China is not a manufacturing juggernaut. It's a Lilliputian. Nor is it a killer of American jobs. It's a huge job creator. Rising China is importing goods from America in such volume that millions of U.S. jobs are sustained through Chinese trade and investment. In Unmade in China, entrepreneur and Georgetown University business professor Jeremy Haft lifts the lid on the hidden world of China's intricate supply chains. Informed by years of experience building new companies in China, Haft's unique, insidera€™s view reveals a startling picture of an economy which struggles to make baby formula safely, much less a nuclear power plant. Using firm-level data and recent case studies, Unmade in China tells the story of systemic risk in Chinese manufacturing and why this is both really bad and really good news for America.1 Economy, a€ Associated Press, http://bigstory.ap.org/article/china-rejects-sign-it- may-soonbe-no-1-economy 9 China Daily, 2010, a€œBeijinga#39;s ... 10 Jacob Poushter, 2013, a€œInflation, Corruption, Inequality Top List of Chinese Publica#39;s Concerns, a€ Pew Research Center, ... 13 Credit Suisse, 2013, a€œGlobal Wealth Databook 2013, a€anbsp;...
