Is America 'Becoming China's b**ch?'

BEIJING – Former Goldman Sachs partner turned author, Peter D. Kiernan, has a new book out that he hopes will “grab the American people by the lapel and ask them if they are focused on what is happening.”

With a title like, “Becoming China’s Bitch: And Nine More Catastrophes We Must Avoid Right Now,” it’s hard not to accomplish that.

Kiernan was on the Dylan Ratigan Show earlier this month, where he talked about how American complacency has allowed China’s rise to occur, the “finance-export co-dependency” that has formed between China and the U.S. and where America needs to go to reassert itself economically.

The interview starts around the 3:10 mark of the video above. An excerpt from the book is also available over at the Morning Joe blog
