Tomorrow, President Obama and Chinese President Xi Jingping will meet in Rancho Mirage to deal with a host of political and economic issues that unite and divide their countries. It's fitting that the summit is being held in California, given China's growing importance to the state's economy. Chinese individuals and companies are investing ever more heavily in many segments of the state, from high-tech companies in the Silicon Valley to commercial and residential real estate in Southern California. KCRW's Saul Gonzalez profiles the Chinese spending spree in the Golden State. He starts by joining a group of Chinese tourists at Universal Studios Hollywood.
