Yes, Biden has repeatedly mentioned approaching China from position of strength. This is a classic John Foster Dulles and other realists' approach. You compete, confront, and sabotage the other side if you don't have absolute advantage over them. You only seek cooperation once the other side loses the game, so you have all the leverages in subsequent negotiations. In other words, cooperate is only possible if I get to set the rules and discourse. Otherwise, it will be forever competition and periodic confrontations.
why would anyone listen? politics trumps economics. whining about XYZ company making a little less than before wont change anything.Everybody know the absurdity of technical restriction eventually it will boomerang but did anybody listen?
GLOBALink | U.S. export restrictions on Chinese tech companies hurt both sides: economist430 views
•Mar 4, 2021
U.S. export restrictions on Chinese tech companies, citing national security concerns, hurt both U.S. companies and Chinese businesses, said a renowned economist, calling for an international agreement on technology flow across countries.
Economics always wins over politics, there is no doubt. Economics is about the people. Politics is about special interests.why would anyone listen? politics trumps economics. whining about XYZ company making a little less than before wont change anything.
the only question is what China is going to do about it?
No different than this real piece of s..t self-hating Chinese haijan.
China is the second most powerful country in the world and the most formidable competitor the United States has faced in decades. Yet at the same time, and in spite of its many visible defects, the United States remains the stronger power in the U.S.-Chinese relationship—and it has good reason to think it can stay that way. For all the obstacles facing the United States, those facing China are considerably greater.
Concentrating on China’s strengths without accounting for its vulnerabilities creates anxiety. Anxiety breeds insecurity. Insecurity leads to overreaction, and overreaction produces bad decisions that undermine the United States’ own competitiveness. Seeing China clearly is the first step toward getting China policy right.
A good article on why cold war with the us is unavoidable no matter who is in power
the us will do everything to stymie China technological rise because of "national security" reason
Such as this
"That may call for a mix of export controls and investment restrictions. It may necessitate the blacklisting of certain Chinese entities. It may require tightening loopholes in those restrictions by working with like-minded allies. And it may require measures to prevent U.S. firms and domestic research and development from being chased from the market by Beijing’s market distorting practices. Ultimately, the goal should be to raise the costs to Beijing enough to persuade it to abandon its beggar-thy-neighbor technology policies
There really are no solutions, just tradeoffs. More transparency would ensure greater awareness of the costs of those tradeoffs and would encourage policies that are more precise and more effective"
At this point China should have no more illusions about the us intentions towards it
I think at China should abandon its hope to "win-win" cooperation with the us
Its obvious now that america is perfectly willing to hurt itself to land a bigger blows to China
