Why Germany's success in manufacturing is important to China
In my previous piece, I argued that US manufacturing has failed to regain its previous pre-international financial crisis levels after analyzing its manufacturing output and employment data. Its failure contrasts sharply with the situation not only of China but also of Germany. To illustrate this, the latest data for German manufacturing production is for June 2018....2018-09-17
Made in America again? Not just yet
In relation to myths in sections of the Chinese media regarding a (non-existent) expansion of US manufacturing, I remember being contacted by one Chinese media outlet and being asked if I would write an article on, "the implications for China of the expansion of US manufacturing."...2018-09-17
Anti-China tariffs: a cost to every US family of $850
The US tariffs against China pose every American family with a stark choice: Do they want to pay 850 US dollars a year to the US tax authorities, to carry out a tax war against China, or do they want to spend that 850 US dollars on their own household? This will significantly affect their living standard....2018-09-03

This was a particularly clear case of "fake news" coming from a US president....2018-08-14
A trade war will cut US living standards
The U.S. media is aware that the Trump administration has only a narrow window of opportunity to attack China in the "trade war" before the situation in the U.S. worsens. The Trump administration aims to use the normal upswing of the U.S. business cycle in 2018 to disguise the pain that U.S. tariffs are causing for the U.S. population, companies, workers and farmers – before a downturn of the U.S. business cycle in 2019-2020 makes that pain more severe....2018-08-13
US sanctions against Iran: No bully is respected
In an effort to achieve "world peace," Donald Trump has decided to re-impose "the most biting" sanctions against Iran. The US has urged all its allies to cut off oil deals with Iran, the world's fifth largest oil producer, by zero this November. ...2018-08-13
Outcome of Brexit process vital for China-UK relations
The visit to China by Jeremy Hunt, the British Foreign Secretary, has raised hopes that the 'golden age' of China-UK relations, established under former UK Prime Minister David Cameron, will be maintained. During that period Britain sought excellent economic relations with China, took independent steps in foreign policy such as joining the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank despite US opposition, and minimized provocative attempts to interfere in China's domestic affairs in Hong Kong and elsew...2018-08-01
