Abstract

In the quarter century between Deng Xiaoping returning from political reeducation, courtesy of the participant observation of the Xinjian County Tractor Factory working class and closely watched carpetbaggers descending on Shanghai, China had made itself into a global workshop. China’s statutory Film Coproduction Corporation had been established in 1979, mostly to work with the Hong Kong industry. China will buy segments of the industry, perhaps even a studio, and will be resumed—perhaps easily, perhaps not—to US business and cultural norms and regulation. Sinophobes and Sinophiles alike will continue in their shared obsession with People’s Republic of China (PRC) difference and dominance. The PRC eyed movement up the so-called value chain greedily and became a massive investor in the US technology sector in the latter period of the Obama hegemony, both to make money and to copy the infrastructure of innovation.
