US and China resume trade negotiations Are China and the US doomed to conflict? | Kevin 1 day ago   04:04

China says it's willing to work together with the US to resolve the year-long trade dispute between the two countries. The foreign ministry expressed optimism as trade negotiations resumed in Beijing. A delegation of US officials including the deputy US trade representative, Jeffrey Gerrish, are holding the first bilateral negotiations since US President Donald Trump and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping agreed to a 90-day truce in their trade war last month. Trump had initially imposed import tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars of Chinese goods to pressure Beijing to change its practices on issues ranging from state subsidies to hacking. China retaliated with tariffs of its own. Markets in Asia posted gains hoping for progress in the talks.

A might be relevant trivium: In Chinese stock markets, red means an increased price, green means decreases. It's the opposite of the American markets.
In the short term, trade war inflicts more pain on China. But in the long run, with its large market, state of art infrastructure, large number of STEM graduates, strength in manufacture& supply chain, China will outlast its competitors. Seriously, US can't manufacture pretty much anything without the help from China's supply chain. Smartest American kids go to medical and law schools. No one is interested in engineering and math. The infrastructure here is crumbling...the list goes on. I applaud Trump's effort in bringing back manufacture jobs. However, trade war and tariff will only push those jobs to cheaper places like Vietnam and Thailand. But at the same time, you are increasing the prices on the basic stuffs that would affect the poor the most.

There will be social unrest if there are no cheaper Chinese goods for poor Americans who can only afford to buy from the dollar shops!

The problem is china gets payments on time and hence they just mass produce....just delay their payments by having a unified payment system mechanism where all US citizens pay their GOV. for chinese product and the US pays it to china

Are China and the US doomed to conflict? | Kevin US and China resume trade negotiations 1 day ago   20:06

The former prime minister of Australia, Kevin Rudd is also a longtime student of China, with a unique vantage point to watch its power rise in the past few decades. He asks whether the growing ambition of China will inevitably lead to conflict with other major powers — and suggests another narrative.
