Rob Atkinson highlights the misconceptions of Thomas Freidman with regard to the China currency bill, affirming a large part of the recession has to do with the fact that systemic Chinese mercantilism hollowed out our manufacturing and tech base, leading to the loss of millions of American jobs.

America needs to effectively respond to Chinese mercantilism: start defending ourselves.
