Intelligence Squared U.S. Audience Does Not Agree that “China Does Capitalism Better than America”

Intelligence Squared U.S. Audience Does Not Agree that “China Does Capitalism Better than America”

pdf (362.69 KB)

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.
