China is indicating it’ll never give in to US demands to change its state-run economy

As trade talks between the U.S. and China increasingly center on Chinese treatment of foreign companies, Beijing says major American complaints about structural aspects of its economy are running up against “core interests.”

The implication: Those matters are not up for negotiation.

Previously, the vague “core interest” term was generally understood as referring to Beijing’s territorial claims, such as those on Taiwan. But a commentary piece published this weekend by state news agency Xinhua emphasized that China will not yield on its prerogative about how to manage its economy.

The Chinese-language article published Saturday claimed there were five ways in which the U.S. is harming the growth of the global economy by launching a trade war with the Asian giant.

“At the negotiating table, the U.S. government has made many arrogant requests, including restricting the development of state-owned enterprises,” the commentary said, according to a CNBC translation. “Obviously, this is beyond the field and scope of trade negotiations, (and) touches upon China’s fundamental economic system.”

1. Why should it? There are many things about it we don't like, but...

it works for them and we have no business interfering unless they violate international law or treaties.

2. Chinese Factories are like Prisons....

Where workers work 14 hours a day for pennies on the dollar making the products Walmart shoppers want for little to nothing.

Those workers in China will not see any increase in wages for those higher prices American Consumers will pay for the products they make. THAT is the sad reality of this.

4. China Staking Out its Policy




Liu Xin, CGTN news anchor rips Fox News coverage of the US-China trade war, and places US policy in a historical context viewed from the Chinese perspective. The thing that is remarkable about this editorial presentation by a Chinese government media group is the uncompromising and critical approach Liu Xin takes which is really uncharacteristic for her. This program is intended for English speaking audiences and that is typically consciously reflected in its temperate and diplomatic approach to issues. This places the trade dispute in an unfavorable historical light in which US-Chinese relations are prospectively to be viewed. The departure from the friendlier relationship between China and the US that began in 1972, is now being officially acknowledged on the Chinese side, and they are accepting the challenge to their sovereignty in historical terms which make accepting US terms unlikely.

5. Chinese economic system like a Casino-house always wins?


Trump's casinos were anomalies-they always lost and he made his money on the tax losses plus running a money-laundering business out of the casinos.

No wonder he is making an economic mess in his China negotiations.
