Intelligence Squared U.S. Audience Does Not Agree that China Does Capitalism Better than America
Last night, Intelligence Squared U.S. continued its spring 2012 season with a sold-out debate and a victory against the motion China Does Capitalism Better than America. In the final tally, Ian Bremmer and Minxin Pei won the Oxford-style debate by convincing 35% of the audience to change their minds and oppose the motion. In the largest margin in IQ2US history, 85% of audience members agreed post-debate that China does not employ a more successful capitalist system than the United States, up from 50% pre-debate.
