China is America's largest overseas trading partner and is has the world's fastest growing large economy. This is the second part of the USC U.S.-China Institute's documentary on the 2008 election and U.S.-China relations.
Every American consumer knows how prominent Chinese goods have become in American stores. In 2007, the U.S. imported goods worth $256 billion more than it exported.

This segment addresses these issues and others, including China’s massive (over $500 billion) investment in America’s national debt and working conditions.
