US-China Relations: Where the Rubber Meets for the Road

From trade rules to human rights, it seems more newsworthy when the two countries agree than when they disagree.  Recent news foreshadowed what may be the next source of tension between the countries: tires.  The US International Trade Commission (US ITC) voted to begin an investigation into possible “dumping” of tires imported from China.
