China’s American enablers

Our Future Blog
by Dave Johnson


China argues that some American companies will suffer if China stops subsidizing manufacturing and adjusts their currency to market levels. They’re right. The fight over Chinese violations of trade rules is also another story about Wall Street and big, monopolistic corporations vs Main Street and American workers. A China Daily story says China’s huge export surplus is being ‘misread.’ The Chinese government says that US companies — the ones who close US factories, lay off workers, devastate communities and throw the costs onto the government — are also beneficiaries of China’s government subsidies...

Will the dragon awake?

by Justin Raimondo


Imagine if Texas governor Rick Perry carried out his half-serious suggestion that Texas secede from the Union, and China opted to sell the Republic of Texas $6 billion worth of Patriot missiles, Blackhawk helicopters, and sophisticated detection systems — for ‘defensive’ purposes only, of course. Washington would rightly consider this very close to an act of war. To the Washington Post, however, other nations have no right to assert their sovereignty: indeed, such impertinence is usually punishable by having ‘rogue nation’ status conferred upon the ‘transgressor,’ who is from that moment a prime candidate for ‘regime change’...

The Rise of China and the Demise of the Capitalist World Economy

Seth Sandronsky, Truthout: "A bit like Malcom X, author Minqi Li used prison time to read widely. The latter studied radical political economy for two years when Chinese leaders locked him up for a critical public speech after the Tiananmen upsurge in 1989. That was then. He is an author and assistant professor of economics at the University of Utah now. Li's 'The Rise of China and the Demise of the Capitalist World Economy' is a must-read for all concerned with the future of the earth and its people."

China’s threat to the US is exaggerated

Independent Institute
by Ivan Eland


The Pentagon’s annual publication, ‘Military Power of the People’s Republic of China 2009,’ accused China of stocking its military with weapons that can be used to intimidate or attack Taiwan and mitigate U.S. air and naval superiority near its territory. Even if the Department of Defense’s report has not exaggerated the threat from China — unlikely since the department has an inherent conflict of interest in evaluating threats and building weapons to counter those threats — the report is good news. You would never know it by the statement of Ike Skelton, Democratic Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, who warned that ‘China’s military budget continues a trend of double-digit increases and questions remain about China’s strategic intentions.’ Unfortunately, no questions exist about U.S. strategic intentions, even under a new more liberal president...
