Program Abstract: China is booming economically. U.S. companies, including Motorola and Boeing, are employing thousands in new factories. However, Western economic investment has not translated into a Chinese acceptance ideas concerning human rights. As evident in the Tienanmen Square massacre. This program discusses the progress that is being made. We meet a radio talk-show host who onvites callers to grill government officials, and newspaper editiors who sometimes run pieces critical of the government's human rights record. And while China may have a ways to go in this respect, one Chinese official predicts, "Full bellies and controlled political evolution will keep China on course (toward expanding human rights)."
