外文标题：China wants to write the rules for commerce in Asia: Obama
WASHINGTON: US president Barack Obama has alleged that China wants to write the rules for commerce in Asia which could give American competitors an "unfair advantage" over the US workers.
"Right now, China wants to write the rules for commerce in Asia. If it succeeds, our competitors would be free to ignore basic environmental and labour standards, giving them an unfair advantage over American workers," Obama said yesterday.
"We can't let that happen. We should write the rules, and level the playing field for our middle class. The first step is for Congress to pass Trade Promotion Authority," he said in an email and an accompanying video message to Americans.
Obama said his top priority as President is making sure more hardworking Americans have a chance to get ahead.
"That's why we have to make sure the United States - and not countries like China - is the one writing this century's rules for the world's economy," he said.

I remember seeing a picture of Obama, holding a book in his hand, getting off from an aircraft. The book was - The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-First Century, an international bestselling book by Thomas L. Friedman that analyzes globalization. The book starts from an interview with Infosys's then chairman, Nandan Nilekani, in Bangalore India. They must not have given that book to Obama. He knows! But most of americans still dont get it.
书名叫《世界是平的：21世纪的简短历史》，Thomas L. Friedman撰写的一本国际畅销的书籍，分析的是全球化。
