of his most extraordinary revelations in a moment, but first a little background. china's rise to power is probably the single, most important trend in our lifetime. it is changing the world, yet we know so little about the country and the men who rule it. they control this vast land of 1.3 billion people, but they also have influence over your life. the chinese are, by far, the largest holder over american debt, and they are increasingly buying up assets on every continent as the economic influence grows. what if they were to lose faith in america? what if they were to lose their economic clout in various countries? the first thing you should know about wen jiabao is he's quite different from other leaders in the chinese modern era. his followers have a nickname for him, grandpa wen. aft year's earthquake in sichuan, he flew out to a devastated area, met with them individually. he behaves more like an american politician than a chinese leader. he is an agile politician inside the ranks of his own party. i asked him about one of the most difficult times of his life, tiananmen squa

wednesday. i talked with the author of "china inc.," and we talked about why this state visit is so important. >> part of the reason is because there has been so much tension between the two leaders. i they've met seven times to date. in the last negotiation there was question whether they would meet at all. as hu jintao moves out and the president faces re-election, they need to find a prosperity path together to cement both of theirs credibility and i think this is one of the deals they struck for this visit. they didn't have a real definite date on it until just a short time ago and once they set it, they decided to go all out and go for this cooperative strategy. >> do you see the u.s. or president obama extending some sort of offer to china that would mean both china and the u.s. would benefit? >> you know, i actually see bigger offers coming from china. i think china's going to be striking very, very large business deals, tens of billions of dollars worth of business and they're going to hope that through the back channel that the rhetoric from the u.s. and from the white hous
