The US and China have a lot to learn from Arsène Wenger РStephen King

From The Independent (link):

We all have these divided loyalties. And divided loyalties make difficult at times to reach the right decision. Globalisation has changed the ways in which we think about the beautiful game: clubs these days have to attract the world’s best players, not just the best players from a single country. Most of us have few problems with this idea.

In other spheres of life, we have difficulty with globalisation. When it comes to economic , countries sometimes cannot agree on the right approach: they protect their own at the expense of the greater good.

It was probably asking too much to see anything of great significance emerge from President Hu Jintao’s trip to last week. Mr Hu spent more of his time with American business leaders than with George Bush and his Washington colleagues. That, in itself, reveals the overriding importance of the growing economic relationship between the two superpowers. But this relationship is upsetting a lot of US politicians: they regard China less as an economic partner and more as a threat.
