App Launch: China Investment Monitor
Posted by melissa | May 6, 2011
During our kickoff meeting with the smart guys at Rhodium Group, Trevor Houser leapt from his seat, grabbed a marker and started sketching out his idea for an interactive map…on the window.
Our collaboration resulted in the successful launch of Rhodium Group’s China Investment Monitor, a web app that accompanies the publication of a major study, An American Door? Maximizing the Benefits of Direct Investment from China, written by Daniel H. Rosen and Thilo Hanemann of The Rhodium Group.
The app gives users an interactive view of Chinese investment in the United States by state, year, industry, investment type (greenfield or acquisition) and ownership (private or government).
The report has been featured in numerous articles, including The New York Times (“As China Invests, U.S. Could Lose”), The Wall Street Journal (“U.S. Warns China Is Closing Up Again”) and The Washington Post (“US: Restrictions on foreign investment are barrier to improving US-China commercial relations”).
