But as Paulson also pointed out, what is at stake goes far above and beyond a trade war.

Economic disputes will not come in the way of China’s reform and opening-up efforts to attract investment

Over the past year, the US government has unilaterally provoked and escalated economic and trade friction with China, with negative impacts on bilateral economic, trade ties and global economic development.上海千花坊

During this rare dispute, voices from home and abroad have made a lot of statements, making the cause and the facts clearer. China-US economic and trade friction in上海千花坊

volves a lot of issues, which need further clarification. The Chinese believe in truth and are not afraid of the clarifications.

• Is the Sino-US trade relationship a zero-sum game?上海千花坊女神会所

Some people in the US stirred up economic and trade friction with China with a solitary reason in mind – loss of profit to US firms and excessive gains for Chinese firms in bilateral

上海千花坊trade, making the issue a threat to Washington’s economic and even national security. This view, which is full of Cold War bias, reflects the hegemony and zero-sum ga

me thinking. Is Sino-US economic and trade relation a zero-sum or win-win game? The answer is clearly both in theory and in practice.

In international economic cooperation, trade relations are based on mutually beneficial exchanges, rather than a zero-sum game in which one side benefits and the o

t上海千花坊女神会所her loses. International trade can lead to optimized allocation of global resources, the common development of all economies involved and the common pr

ogress of human society. The history of international trade and the trade between China and the US have proved that such a practice is effective, and such p

ractical experience has long been the basic principle of international economic study. Since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two co上海千花坊女神会所

untries, bilateral trade in goods increased 252-fold, from less than $2.5 billion to $633.5 billion between 1979 and 2018.

In the past four decades, two-way investment has grown from almost zero to over $160 bil

lion, making the two countries a vital investment partner for each other. The history of Sino-US ec

onomic and trade relations proves that both countries have benefited in industrial development and optimization. The trade relations have cre

ated a situation in which both parties won rather than one in which China progressed and the US lost out.

• Is US’ insistence on “fair trade “really fair?

Some people in the United States accuse China of adopting unfair and unequal trade policies that

have caused the US trade deficit with China. They tried to grab fair trade as a way to keep the moral high

ground in public opinion. However, what is “fair trade”? Fairness is a matter of history. In international trade, due to the difference in the stages of developm

ent, specific conditions and interests from different countries, in order to make trade happen smoothly, the

international community has formed trade rules through negotiations on an equal footing.

In the 1950s, the Amer 上海千花网try was seen as the

e prototype of how business should be run. Car company executives were seen as the most capable manage

 上海千花网品茶微信rs. In 1953, president Eisenhower chose Charles Wilson, known as “engine Charlie,” to be his Secretary of Defense.

Then, in 1961, president Kennedy chose Ford president Robert McNamara for the same position. (Of course, McNamara’s incredible mismanagement of the war in Vietnam reduced any confidence that car company executives were especially competent.)

By the late 1960s, the “big three “car companies in the US – General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler – formed a virtual oligopoly and turned lazy. 上海千花网

I remember American cars my father bought in these years often overheating and breaking down by the side of the road. Dad would have to stay by the car with my m

other and sisters while I walked a long way to find a service station and arrange a tow. (This was long before mobile phones.) 上海千花网品茶微信

So, American consumers were ready for more competitive Japanese-made cars, which had consistently high

er quality, to enter the market. My father switched to Japanese cars in the 1970s, and never bought another American-made car. 上海千花网

American car companies saw their profits fall and were not able to pay their workers t

he very high wages made possible by a closed, non-competitive market. The US government responded by

 上海千花网品茶微信imposing quotas on the import of Japanese cars and by pushing Japan to rapidly raise the value of the yen.

Obviously, there was a conflict. American consumers benefitted from the cheaper, better cars while workers at the big three saw their jobs become less secure and the

ir wages fall. Fortunately, the protection was only partial and temporary, so the competition eventually forced US carmakers to improve.

Competition is at the heart of the current disputes over globalization and technology. On net, the spread of econo 上海千花网品茶微信

mic opportunities around the world has been a great boon. Many products are more widely and cheaply available than ever before.

Many countries, including China and India, have greatly reduced poverty and given opportunities to their people that would have been undreamed of by earlier ge 上海千花网

nerations. American and Western European companies and consumers have greatly benefitted.

But nobody really likes competition against themselves. Most people like some degree of stability and protection. A worker w

ho has put in 20 or 30 years in an industry will definitely feel that it is unfair to have to move to a much lower-pa

ying service job. A company facing new competitors will try to convince its home government to stop the competition.

Americans saw many benefits from the second globalization period. As Japanese and, later Chinese, manufacturers began to export t

o the US, many consumer goods became a lot cheaper in US stores. Many American companies made good profits by exporting t

o the newly open markets or by outsourcing manufacturing to cheaper and/or better factories outside the US.

Geng Shuang, spokesman of the Foreign Ministry

d China has always called for resolving trade tensions with the US through dia

上海千花坊logue and consultation, but it will firmly safeguard its own legitimate interests.

US threats to impose more tariffs on Chinese imports cannot intimidate the Chinese people, Geng added.上海千花坊

Gao said China’s stance toward tariffs is clear, that the country has always opposed

unilaterally imposed tariffs. “The US trade bullying eventually hurts its own businesses and consumers,” he said.上海千花坊女神会所

The “unreliable entities” list-a blacklist of foreign parties that, for noncom

上海千花坊mercial reasons, harm the interests of Chinese companies, will be released soon,

Gao said. Companies that abide by Chinese law and the spirit of contracts have nothing to worry about, he said.

上海千花坊女神会所Zhou Mi, deputy director of the Institute of American and Oceania Studies of the Chinese Academy of International Trade and Eco

nomic Cooperation, said it is necessary for China to push forward with the list of “unreliable entities,” and export restriction measures.

“These moves will bring about institutional improvement,” Zhou said. “They are

上海千花坊女神会所not meant to punish any company, but to guide all market entities to abide by the laws, regulations and commercial con

tracts. They can further level the playing field for both homegrown and foreign companies.”上海千花坊

In a recent survey, a majority of US and Chinese consumers expressed strong su

pport for bilateral trade due to a belief that both countries benefit from the exchan

ge of goods, said Mei Yan, senior partner and China chair at advisory firm Brunswick Group.上海千花坊

The online survey was conducted among 1,000 US consumers and 1,000 Chinese consumers in early June.

Christensen repeatedly claimed that he let Zhang get out of his car after she “freaked out” when

He admitted during the questioning that he was attracted to Zhang “a reasonable amount”.

Both Manganaro and Stiverson pointed out that based on what they knew, she “didn’t get out” of his car.
