VICE News and the New York Review of Books have partnered to create Talking Heads, a series about the big issues of the day as seen by the Review's distinguished contributors.

In the first episode, Orville Schell discusses his essay "China Strikes Back." He recently joined Jimmy Carter on a visit to China, where the former president received a less-than-warm welcome by the country's leaders. Carter re-established diplomatic relations between the United States and China, but how close are the two countries 35 years later? Schell explains how the snubbing reflects a dramatic shift in US-China relations.

VICE News sat down with Schell to discuss the significance of the diplomatic slight against Carter, and how the US might benefit from a better understanding of the "Chinese Dream."

Well, I do feel sad for Carter, but I think the Chinese leadership prioritises decision makers over historically famous people.

I think they want to make deals, not listen to speeches. It probably does come across as rude, but I think they have a lot on their minds, and politeness might not be at the forefront of their concerns at this moment.

Blame. It on nixon and than the coporations like all manufacturing jobs there cause nothing is exposed , prison labour ,child labour ,no union ,violation of all labour rules under communism ,corporations found stability where nothing is exposed no media nothing whatever the dictator says goes no questions asked so we are strengthing china . A better solution would have been to spread the wealth to other poor countries laos cambodia vietnam but corporations love stability one word and it happens nothing exposed .under an iron fist communist government

Is it not interesting. A country hick, who became the president, might have finally realized that he was used. China wanted to have the U.S. stab Taiwan in the back. Just sell those people out and we will be so kind as to be your friend. Jimmy Carter was happy to do that. Now after we built that monster up it wants the South China Sea. It would have been better if we would have opened up trade with countries in South America instead. Mainland China could have been kept as a backward third-word country. Trump is a hothead. But he is better than Carter. The only one that is worse than Carter was L.B.J.

true.. they should start decoupling. usa pull out their investments and factories in china and china pull out all their investnment in usa too. china and usa will and should never be friends or ally. they are fundamentally so different that they should be enemies and compete to be no.1 in the world. democracy and communism dictatorship should never mix.

This video came out before the Chinese also humiliated President Obama, which was a obvious snub just like the one described in this video against President Carter. That was then. That was before the phenomenon called Donald Trump was elected president. Trump was received with and subsequently treated with respect. The Chinese know that Trump is a force of nature that they cannot mess with.

I really worry with the direction our country is going, we have 300 military bases across the globe and spend 10 times more than any other country in military spending, we are creating enemies threw out the world and alienating our allies. Our government cant seem to curb its spending wasting hundreds of billions every year and taxing us more and more, when you do the math over half of our income in taxed one way or another then wasted by the government, now we are borrowing from China and using the money to buy more of their products this cant continue, we have nearly a trillion DOLLAR DEFICIT THIS YEAR does anyone understand we cant continue like this or does it have to explode in our faces for us to wake up.
