Imagine in the middle of a job interview being asked the following question: “You are shrunk to the height of a nickel and thrown into a blender. Your mass is reduced, so your density is the same as usual. The blades start moving in 60 seconds.

Eric Jay Dolin: WHEN AMERICA FIRST MET CHINA

Date: 
Tuesday, October 16, 2012 - 10:00am
Program: 

America’s trade relationship with China began right after the Revolutionary War. But trade with China at that time was not easy. The Middle Kingdom did not trust foreigners and confined American and European ships to the port of Canton. There were very strict rules set down by the emperor about how trade with foreign nations could occur. American traders brought sea otter pelts; sealskins; sandalwood, běche de mer (sea cucumbers) to trade for Chinese tea, silks, spices, jade and porcelain.
