Tony’s home has always been in the UK but he has travelled in the USA, has relatives there and, like a lot of British people, feels that he is familiar with the country. He is fascinated by the way in which the two countries have diverged but maintain a “special relationship” even if it is far more important to the UK than to the USA. His particular concern is to relate the US and the UK to developments in China. In the first part of his talk he sets out some of the important issues of economics and politics and then looks for a Chinese perspective by asking his audience for their views on more general questions which he puts to them. In this way he hopes to draw out some of the many interesting differences of daily life and promote an understanding of them.
