    Meanwhile, Siemens of Germany bought out Westinghouse’s generating sector in 1998 and sold it to a French concern. While Westinghouse was beating the drums for Most Favored Nation (MFN) status for China, lobbying the Clinton White House, it was also making a deal to sell on credit its AP600 nuclear reactor to China. The Chinese required that the reactor be built with Chinese labor, and the jobs Westinghouse promised for American workers never materialized.

    Westinghouse also knew it was divesting itself of most of its American operations, making its support of MFN status for China rather self-serving, not to mention on the lower end of an ethical scale in conducting business. Newsmax .. 2003.

    France is trying to sell her nuclear technology till it has value. In horizon of 30 year this techlogy will be worthless. Google out ITER or Cadarache,

    I hate to say this but it seems that Chinese attitude
    nowadays and for the past 30 years seems to be
    “Business is Business and the Business of China is Business”

    Pity because that used to be the American credo (Calvin Coolidge)

    PS nowadays the Business of the United States
    seems to be Politics/ Promoting Democracy.
    which aint that different from the Business of the old Soviet Union
    except that they were only busy promoting Communism ( as opposed to Democracy)
