China Fighting PEOPLES WAR Against US - State Media On Tariff Hikes

Published time: 14 May, 2019 21:19

China’s state-backed Global Times has called Beijing’s trade conflict with Washington a “people’s war” and accused the US of “greed and arrogance,” after both sides hiked tariffs on each other’s exports.

“In the Sino-US trade war, the US side fights because of greed and arrogance,” read a Monday op-ed by the Global Times, published on Xinhua News. Xinhua is a state-run press agency, and Global Times usually communicates the Chinese government’s position.

America’s “morale will break at any time,” the article thundered, adding that “China is fighting back to protect its legitimate rights and interests.”

For us, this is a real “people’s war.”

Global Times’ stance was echoed by China’s state-owned broadcaster CCTV, which declared “China will strengthen its confidence...and fight for a new world.

1. It doesn't look like an agreement is near, or even possible.

Trade with China seems to be a game in which the only way to win is not to play.

3. China has its own population to maintain its internal economy once they shift to that

model vs providing the West with our desire for cheap stuff.

5. Of course they have their own internal economy, as do all developed countries. They provide the

West with cheap stuff because they can sell it for a profit, which benefits their economy. If they want to stop doing that they could produce only high quality stuff to offer on the world market, and this stuff would have to compete with all the other high quality stuff being offered there. That's what trade is all about. Of course, they could withdraw from international trade, but that would shrink the global economy of which theirs is a part. If that's what they want, they're free to do so. But whatever they do, that doesn't give them the right to steal another trading patner's intellectual property or force that trading partner to give it up to them as the price of doing business with them. If they insist on that, the offended trading partner may just decide not to trade with them any more. That's what seems to be at the root of the current trade war. International trade agreements are contracts, and like all contracts, they should be entered into voluntarily, for MUTUAL BENEFIT. China, the US, the EU and any other countries involved in international trade, should keep this in mind as they negotiate these agrements, or the system will break down with unfortunate consequences.
