As an octogenarian doyen, I earned my university degree(1946) in Shanghai,the waterfront as a fusion of Chinese and western architecture and as a gateway to the world especially the upcoming World Expo starting in May 2010.
I was fortunate to learn the Chinese language(evocative in arts and music) and studied social sciences in China and in the United States as a learner seeking incisive knowledge in humanities with a purview of illuminating comparative studies since 1947 at University of San Francisco and Georgetown University Graduate School. I have related my specialized findings to macro economics that I taught in USA and in China for 4 decades) examining Chinese society with one world scene as reprise.
Such cosmopolitan approach reinforces the evidence of my daily blogs with the title of Sino-American Economics for readers to stretch mind to witness China efforts in shaping up its role in the world for cross reference.
