    U.S. Considers Broad Curbs on Chinese Imports, Takeovers

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...orts-takeovers

    The Trump administration is considering clamping down on Chinese investments in the U.S. and imposing tariffs on a broad range of its imports to punish Beijing for its alleged theft of intellectual property, according to people familiar with the matter.

    The U.S. Trade Representative’s office last year began investigating China’s IP practices under a seldom-used trade law that gives President Donald Trump powers to impose trade restrictions to protect American commerce from unfair trading actions by foreign nations. An announcement about the investigation is anticipated in the coming weeks.
    It's about time we got serious. We've finally started to put the brakes on a serial burglar after he robbed 1500 homes. Late is better than never.

    We have to push back against the Chinese before it's too late. I don't know who's going to fight him tooth and tong, but I suspect the TDS crew will have issues with this. Democrats? They's been pretty quiet lately.
    Trump is here because we made an existential bad bargain with China

    But now who will buy homes in Arcadia and build McMansions on lots that can barely fit them?

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24

    Good start would be getting the kooker left to stop trying to get something for nothing by shopping at WalMart. Cheap bastards.

    The US is an economic powerhouse, it's time we flex those muscles.

    Sounds like we are going to need a bigger government.

    Trump's Cabinet and the swamp dwellers.

    Next question.










    Somedays I stop and ask myself if it is going to be worth the effort of chewing through the restraints.

    Just make sure you work out which Democrats to blame when the self-inflicted economic crash comes.

    Trump vetoed a Chinese company's attempt at buying an American corp. sometime early on last year, so it's possible he really intends to do this.

    So you don't support punishing China for stealing our intellectual property and other industrial espionage (most of which occurs in our Defense industry)?

    I'm surprised anyone is against taking action against China.

    I wish I could stop saying this, but alas debate boards won't let me: A post that starts with "So" is almost universally guaranteed to be a post that attempts to put a strawman into the other person's mouth for purposes of pidgeonholing him/her into a position they didn't take, so as to set up a dishonest criticism.


    We can hurt China. China can hurt us. It will be very bad both ways if we get into a trade war.


    Make sure you know what you're asking for and what it will cost. Make sure you understand it very well before trumpeting some half-cocked...no...uncocked policy that Trump crapped out after getting made at something he heard from his advisers on Fox and Friends.
