4. Like it or not, China is a first world country now.

Our economy is very dependent on trade with China, but their rules on our access are lopsided. This is what I believe.

We need to trade with China, but also encourage the country to look more to internal consumption versus exports. Unfortunately, we have not historically done a good jobs of raising the living standards and economic status of all our citizens.

We should have frank discussions with China about how it deals with itís nearest neighbors, while realizing that China faced a history of invasion from itís near neighbors, so there is some historical animosity that we need to push China to get past.

In essence, China is a world leader now. We need to talk frankly and demand that the country act like a world leader and stop some of the bullying that it does (though, again, our hands are not clean relative to our southern neighbors).
