How has Japan managed the waning of its rapid growth? And what will China's slow down look like? And how has the U.S. looked on at these remarkable cases of precipitous growth and slow down?
Ezra Vogel, author of the classic Japan as Number One? Lessons for America (1979) and Is Japan Still Number One? (2011), is uniquely well-suited to consider the rise of China today and, as importantly, the matter of China/Asia in the American imagination.
