Personal Car Ownership in China


Orville Schell, director of the Center for U.S.- China Relations at the Asia Society discusses the role that the personal car will play in China as citizens move out of poverty and into the middle class. "There is something about personal cars that’s part of everybody’s dream, American, Chinese, you name it. But it’s also the curse of modern civilization," said Schell.
