The U.S. Could Be Shooting Itself in the Foot with Huawei Sanctions
The near-hysteria in Washington over the expansion of Huawei worldwide and its development of 5G technology has provided some much sought ammunition for politicians here in Washington with a dearth of ideas for resolving America’s economic woes, and may have some short-sighted benefit for them among a populace fearful that the direction of American society is on a downward spiral. Finding a scapegoat for the country’s dilemma apart from the powers in Washington that actually determine the fate of the nation, is always a welcome relief for those power-brokers who hold themselves above scrutiny. And preventing a competing nation from becoming an integral contributor to the vital communications networks on which the world increasingly depends is an added boon. And yet the attempt to undermine Huawei from becoming a bigger player in the world’s communications systems may in fact sabotage the growth of U.S. companies engaged in the same field....2019-06-17
China grows weary of the U.S. moving the goal posts on trade
The publication by China's Ministry of Commerce of the policy white paper “China's Position on the China-U.S. Economic and Trade Consultations” last week, coupled with China's Ministry of Commerce's research report on U.S. gains from bilateral trade cooperation on Thursday, are really China drawing a line in the sand, noting that their patience was running out with the continual shifts in U.S. policy in resolving the contentious trade negotiations. How many times have we seen the two sides approaching some type of agreement when suddenly President Donald Trump, or one of his advisers, makes some remarks about issues that remain unresolved and throws everything into turmoil?...2019-06-10
Despite a trade agreement, Trump threatens Mexico with new tariffs
U.S. President Trump seems almost obsessed with his newfound ability to get his way using tariffs as a weapon. Concerned with the continued flow of migrants on the U.S. border with Mexico, which he blames on Mexico's rather limited ability to prevent migrants from coming through their country to the U.S. border, he is now threatening Mexico with a five percent tariff starting on June 10....2019-06-06

Willliam Jones: Europe is as threatened as China by Trump's new tariffs
On April 9, U.S. President Donald Trump announced on Twitter that the U.S. will impose tariffs on 11 billion U.S. dollars worth of European Union products, ranging from airplanes to dairy products. Imposing tariffs seems to be the latest arrow in the Trump quiver these days in achieving some of his long-term goals. The real question, however, is how effective will they be in realizing the revival of U.S. economic growth....2019-04-12
China's experience helps transform an African desert into a garden
With the upcoming visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping to Italy, there will no doubt be some discussion of cooperation between the two nations on the African continent. For Italy, helping to resolve the dire economic situation in Africa is both a humanitarian and an economic concern. The devastated economy in many African countries is bringing more and more refugees to Italy's shore, and the burden is taking its toll on the Italian economy. For China, Africa has always been a particular concern having shared in the condition of underdevelopment for so many years. Even when both were clearly developing countries, China offered its assistance to its African brothers....2019-03-20
