The nature and texture of the US-China economic relationship is changing. As Chinese students, tourists, homebuyers, and investors pour into every corner of the United States, they are moving the relationship beyond just trade linkages, and ushering in a new era of face-to-face economic and social engagement.
The China Footprint captures this evolving dynamic by piecing together a composite picture of Chinese consumption and investment on US soil. The flows represented here span analytical categories—trade and investment, goods, and services—but they all bind together Chinese and American citizens in new ways, turning them into neighbors, business partners, classmates, and co-workers.
