Orville Schell: In China vs Google, Google Resembles a Country

Thomas Crampton interviewed Orville Schell, Director of the Asia Society’s Center on US China Relations, at the World Economic Forum in Davos about Google in China:

One key issue in the confrontation, Schell said, is that Google has become more like a nation than a company. By this he means that not only is Google closely connected to the Obama administration, but the company has a high resonance in the western world. Only a company like Google could take such a stance against China, he said in this video recorded at Davos.
