Before tonight's state dinner at the White House, President Obama and China's Hu Jintao will talk about lots of issues--primarily economic and trade-related. On the agenda, as it always is for talks between Chinese and American officials, intellectual property and piracy. That's a huge issue for the entertainment industry and for Silicon Valley. UC Irvine economist Peter Navarro joins. He's written books about China and trade, including The Coming China Wars and Seeds of Destruction.
