Discussing Economics

As you've probably heard the United States House of Representatives voted down the $700 Billion bailout plan. It's a scary thought as to where the U.S. economy is headed.

Well, all's not bad in the tech. world. TechCrunch is running an article entitled, "$21 Million for Mr. China." Liam Casey's Chinese supply chain manufacturing company has just received an infusion in cash from U.S. venture capitalists.

What do your students think this story reveals about the relationship between the U.S. and the Chinese economies? Would it be fair to expand this question to western economies and eastern economies? Why/why not?

Is this discussion appropriate for Classroom 2.0? Why/why not?
