Ethan Gutman's experience in the business world in China lends him a keen insight into Google's move to censor its search engine in China. Host Anna Chan and Ethan Gutman discuss Google's decision to censor key words according to the Chinese Communist Party's wishes - words such as democracy, Taiwan independence, and Tibet. Google's censorship is "a shameful moment in America's coorporate history and I hope it is a brief moment," says Gutman. Gutman also discusses the technical aspects of internet supervision in China and the psychological effects of censorship on the Chinese people.
