Does China's Manufacturing Prowess Depend on Intellectual Property Violations?

A Discussion with Professor Willy Shih of Harvard Business School and Professor Tim Wu of Columbia Law School. Moderated by Jesse Greene.

The decades-long decline of American manufacturing coupled with a rise in Chinese competition is the subject of public debate, political campaigns, and even Super Bowl ads. China is perceived to have developed manufacturing capability that is superior to other nations and to be taking jobs from the US, among others. Some American firms allege that misappropriation of trade secrets and intellectual property is part of the Chinese model.
