The U.S.-China Digital Economy: Opportunity, Compromise and Peril

Social networks and e-commerce are booming in the United States and China. Major players from both countries are deeply interested in the other’s markets. U.S. corporations doing business in China are beyond the reach of U.S. regulators and subject to the Chinese government’s information and national security strategies. Chinese firms working in the more open U.S. market are suspected of bringing aspects of the China’s surveillance state and American shores, threatening U.S. consumers, industries, and technological infrastructures.
