Advantages of Chinese Trade PolicyPolitics / Protectionism Jun 06, 2012 - 04:15 AM GMT
"The Chinese may take risks far more than average Americans do, thanks to advice from traditional proverbs."
The saying "At a good bargain, think twice" is pretty risk-averse. On the other hand, a typical Chinese proverb such as "Seize an opportunity and make good use of it" shows how risk-taking is ingrained in Chinese culture.
Much of the coverage on the imbalance in global trade focuses on Chinese imports into the U.S. In order to understand these disparities, a short review of the International Viewpoint list is helpful, from an Asian perspective, why China is the world trade leader.
There are seven great advantages of China.
First, she has a more developed and balanced industry than many developing countries.
Second, China’s very strong and effective state machinery has been an effective tool for mobilizing resources for modernization.
Third, the sheer size of China - a huge country with a population of 1.3 billion - greatly magnifies the advantages of effective state-led growth and sophisticated manufacturing.
China’s fourth great advantage is the legacy of land reform.
The fifth element of China advantage is deep-rooted nationalism.
The sixth advantage of capitalist China is her absolutely atomized labor in face of an absolute state.
Last but not the least, China has a unique advantage in the big leap forward to embrace global capitalism, namely the unique factor of having Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan as her door to the world.
This point of view may explain Chinese Proverbs on business, but absent in the equation is an admission that the world trade system is slanted in favor of the Globalist model, at the expense of domestic commerce.Even the predisposed transnational New York Times in a report, China Uses Rules on Global Trade to Its Advantage, admits that the playing field is not level.
"China is engaged in a two-pronged effort: fighting protectionism among its trade partners and holding down the value of its currency.
To maximize its advantage, Beijing is exploiting a fundamental difference between two major international bodies: the World Trade Organization, which wields strict, enforceable penalties for countries that impede trade, and the International Monetary Fund, which acts as a kind of watchdog for global economic policy but has no power over countries like China that do not borrow money from it."
Ostensibly, this NYT conclusion is the mainstream assessment. However, a comprehensive analysis needs to take into account the complicity of design used by the Globalists to transform international trade into a non-competitive vehicle for the establishment of a controlled New World Order.A hint on the nature of the problem is cited in an Op-Ed published in the LA Times, How China unfairly bests the U.S.
This ominous forecast is partially correct, but needs to include an entire additional level in order to understand that the trading system is not solely a conflict between risk taking Chinese "seizing an opportunity", and timid American corporatists abandoning domestic prosperity.
"The most potent of China's "weapons of job destruction" are an elaborate web of export subsidies; the blatant piracy of America's technologies and trade secrets; the counterfeiting of valuable brand names like Nike and Chevy; a cleverly manipulated and grossly undervalued currency; and the forced transfer of the technology of any American company wishing to operate on Chinese soil or sell into the Chinese market.
The second myth we must expose if we are to ever reverse the job-killing trade deficits we now run with China is the idea that free trade always benefits both countries. That doesn't hold true if one country cheats on the other. Instead, when a mercantilist China uses unfair trade practices to wage war on our manufacturing base, the American economy is the big loser."
The abandonment of a "deep-rooted nationalism" by most American public companies causes a sellout culture that even Apple cannot gloss over.Producing their overpriced devices using slave labor, may be dandy for profits, but lacks the foresight to continue a vibrant national economy. Illustrating similar examples over the decades, that the perverted Free Trade fraud has been in place, only proves that the loss of an independent manufacturing base is no coincidence.
The Globalists are in partnership with China. The Chinese system of serfs produce an "atomized labor force" is the framework for the NWO economy.
The technological innovations and intellectual ingenuity, long the hallmark of the American genius, is now routinely transferred into Chinese custody, as the price of doing business with the Communist regime.
This madness goes on continuously with only a whimper of concern, from the multinational executives that export our economic independence for a fake independency.Chinese advantages in trade policy are mostly tactics and methods of extortion, under the guiding hand of a cabal of international debt created capital. The invisible hand of Adam Smith is replaced with complot Maoism in place of a free market. The Proletarian Cultural Revolution has yielded into the central bankers’ paradise of indentured servitude. The primary product from the "so called", - effective state-led growth - is centralized control. The financial reserves of the Globalists and their Chinese cousins accumulate consistently under the protection of their unfair trade policies.
Under Free Trade schemes, America looses on all levels. These pecuniary policies designed to replace the entrepreneurial alternative; with corporatist distribution, has the goal of eliminating competition.The sentiment of the master monopolist David Rockefeller is revealing, "Whatever the price of the Chinese Revolution, it has obviously succeeded not only in producing more efficient and dedicated administration, but also in fostering high morale and community of purpose. The social experiment in China under Chairman Mao's leadership is one of the most important and successful in human history."
The biggest advantage the Chinese Marxists have is that their Western plutocrat admirers are joined at the hip and plot world hegemony through a financial and economic conjugation. While trade is important for commerce to spread, it must be fair and balanced. China fails this test.
