    Chinese Policy

    Who do you think will be tougher on China? They both claim that they will be tough on China, but who will really follow through? Or is that not the way to go at all?

    Yeah let's be tough on a nation that we owe money to....we need a leader that will keep tensions low between us while at the same time try to get businesses back to American through tax breaks and other ways.

    Neither of them will do anything to intentionally inflame tensions with China, nor should they. They're both just talking out of their asses to try to score political points. It's a shame that they do it by stirring up anti-China sentiment though.

    China wants to be what the U.S. is (the biggest world power). In this day and age that means that they need to be the biggest economic power. To accomplish that goal they are willing to break rules and step on the toes of other countries.

    Romney is more business minded and will deal with china in a way that is better for our economic competitiveness.

    I'm pretty tired of people talking about China like it's "the enemy". It's not.

    They might be devaluing their currency but so are we... The federal reserve is destroying the value of the dollar.

    Well, let's be clear: China is "willing to break rules and step on the toes of other countries" exactly like any other upcoming power would (and as the United States did). International law, as it exists today, is largely a construct of the dominant post-WWII countries with little input from others. Chinese influence in this sphere is remarkably small relative to the size of its economy, so I don't think it's particularly surprising that they don't always play by the rules. What will probably eventually happen is that lots of international laws will need to be rewritten with more participation from China and consideration for Chinese interests. And this is as it should be.

    Since China has the most people of any nation, it ought to have the biggest economy too. The fact that it doesn't yet is an indication of how backward and poor it still is. China's economic boom is something that everyone should celebrate, as it greatly reduces global poverty.

    who cares about nations which are far away and about which we know little?




    China is rising slowly, but she is no gentle giant. We should be no more at ease with her taking dominance over the southeast pacific than we should have been with the Soviets taking Eastern Europe.

    Re: Chinese Policy

    Its pathetic that both our presidential candidates would pander to the impotent losers who desire aggressive foreign policy because it makes them feel strong. China is certainly a rival, but it is competition of economics not force. If we want to stay on top, it will require leadership skilled in negotiating trade agreement as opposed to childish chest beating.

    Re: Chinese Policy

    I voted for Obama. He is soft and subservient only with the middle eastern and african countries. He is pretty steadfast in relation to European countries and east asian countries, including China. Romney still seems to think there is a cold war going on and that the Russians are the worlds biggest threat...
