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
