"Alienation 101": Chinese Students in US Universities (Rodolfo Neirotti, USA, 07/06/17 4:10 am)

John E wrote on July 4th: "Another US 'export' to China we haven't addressed in this discussion is education--precisely, the 300,000 Chinese studying in the US, and spending great deals of money to do so. That many of the best and brightest end up staying here is only icing on the cake."

Concerning the Chinese studying in the US as another US "export," I strongly recommend the article "Alienation 101" by Brook Lamer published in the April-May 2017 The Economist 1843 supplement. It is a good analysis of the situation, with a description of the frustrations and interactions of the students with the locals.

JE comments: Here's the link to the article, which focuses on the ambivalent experience of Chinese students at the U of Iowa. Iowa has heavily recruited Chinese students as a means to increase its all-important revenues.  (Xi Jinping lived with a host family in Muscatine, Iowa in the 1980s, cementing the "special relationship" of the state with the PRC.)

Lamer highlights the "missed opportunities" of bringing Chinese to the US.  At Iowa, a ghetto culture has emerged among the 2000+ Chinese population, who spend their days cruising in luxury vehicles and keeping to themselves.  

Is the economic panacea of Chinese students in the US largely an example of mutual exploitation?  Read on:
