Fareed Zakaria’s interview with Premier Wen Jiabao

Huh, when did Fareed Zakaria get his own TV show? I know the guy is a Newsweek columnist but never realized he is on TV nowadays.

Anyway, I read his interview with Premier Wen Jiabao, which triggered a search on the web that led to the Youtube footage. Really impressive. Premier Wen is a person that I respect, admire, and love. And I really love the message he delivered in the interview. He also got me interested in Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations, a book that the Premier read many times. Got to see if my library has a copy.

Here is the transcript.

Update: Fareed can be a good Arnold Schwarzenegger impersonator with his voice.

Here is the interview in 3 parts on Youtube. Most of Wen’s talk was voiced over by the interpreter, but one can still hear quite a bit. In addition, about half of the interview is subtitled in Chinese:
