The following video is part of our nationally syndicated Motley Fool Money radio show, with host Chris Hill talking with advisors Tim Hanson, Ron Gross, and James Early. In this segment the guys analyze Apple's relationship with manufacturers in China. In the wake of recent news reports about the dangerous working conditions at some of the factories in China, the guys discuss how much leverage Apple has, the upcoming audit results, and what investors should be watching for next. As one who has toured factories in China, Tim reminds investors that the relationship between American companies and Chinese manufacturers is not as black and white as some may believe.

One of the keys for companies like Apple is being able to expand into, and eventually dominate, emerging markets.
