U.S-China Trade Discussions Going No-where by Design – Expect More Trump Tariffs and More Beijing-DPRK Missile Tests…

Despite Wall Street headline writers trying to frame an opposite reality, President Trump has no disposition toward making a trade deal with China.  Conversely, China has no intention of changing the closed and state-controlled structure of their economy.  That’s the reality amid a trade dance that is going absolutely no-where.

This quote is priceless: “We can add the Diplomatic war to the Financial war, Currency war and Technology war, that we already have,” John Browning, managing director at brokerage BANDS Financial in Shanghai, said in a note to investors.

The Chinese position is thus:

REUTERS […] The U.S. demand that the Chinese Communist Party fundamentally change how it directs China’s massive economy to shift to a more Western model of free-market capitalism is irrational and misguided, a Chinese diplomat in the United States said.

“What we achieved during the past few decades shows that our system is good for development in China,” the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

China would not ask the United States to shift to an economy that relies heavily on state-owned enterprises, or ask it to start fully funding education, as China’s does, he said, so why should Washington expect the same from Beijing?

“We hope to strike an agreement but also accept the differences,” the diplomat added.  (read more)

President Trump:

Speaking to reporters in Washington, Trump said: “If we can make a deal, we’re going to make a deal, there’s a really good chance.”  “In my opinion China wants to make a deal more than I do,” Trump added. (link)

In an attempt to change their diminishing economic position and create leverage Beijing fires DPRK rockets.

The response from President Trump – The U.S. Department of Commerce on Monday blacklisted video surveillance firm Hikvision and 27 others, days ahead of the talks.

The Commerce Department barred the technology and artificial intelligence companies from doing business with U.S. firms, citing human rights violations of Muslim minority groups in Xinjiang. Chinese officials said the action interfered with China’s sovereignty.  (Full Story)

This ongoing dynamic is not going to end….

Communist China and Chairman Xi Jinping are trying to wait-out President Trump hoping he doesn’t get re-elected in 2020.   President Trump is using communist China’s strategy of waiting-him-out as an opportunity, and somewhat of a smart excuse, to put more punishment on Beijing.

President Trump has been very clear in his objective.  However, President Trump has also been clear that he sees little possibility of any trade-agreement.

There is not going to be a U.S-China trade agreement.

        Trump has made it clear. China can order as many North Korean missile tests as they want. It won’t get Trump to the table begging for a test ban and paying for the privilege. If China thinks the DPRK’s coffers are a bit light, that’s their problem. Using missiles to generate negative press for Trump during a trade negotiation impasse? It’s kind of redundant, wouldn’t you think? The word overkill comes to mind here.

        So how many more missile tests can we expect? What’s the point? Missiles cost money, and without a strong PR payoff, shooting at nothing in particular is a wasted expense. It doesn’t even make for good target practice. Despite their authoritopian views, lifelong communists still have to work the bottom line, like it or not.

        And don’t think that Dear Leader doesn’t occasionally ponder the possibilities of a relationship with Trump’s USA when he goes to bed at night. He knows which side his bread is buttered on, but he also knows who didn’t assassinate his brother. Kim Jong-un may be a dictator, but he isn’t his own man. At least, not currently. He could be given to weighing hard choices during down time…and sometimes maybe wishing he didn’t share a border with China.

        Besides, China has it’s own problems to deal with, and a billion dependent comrades can get uppity. They have needs, and lately the provisions have become a bit marginal. Of course, a solid trade agreement with their biggest customer could alleviate some of that pain. Fairly priced manufactured exports can buy a lot of rice.

          Problem is, they have the global parts supply chain so locked up, that it will take at least a decade to re-build the world’s supply chain for parts. The stuff we have hears about over the past 12-18 months is a drop in the bucket – China still owns the vast majority of the supply chain for almost everything. China knows that if Trump loses 2020, then they win it all. They and Russia and Europe and Central America will do everything they can to interfere in this election – their futures rely on Trump losing.

            I’m pretty sure we really don’t know that to be a fact. There has been some previous discussions on this topic on this site, and the bulk of the (admittedly anecdotal) citations don’t support the existence of a “critical key component crisis”. Personally, and from my global, high-tech corporate viewpoint, very little of the most critical global mfg seems to have gone to China (as of yet). Things have certainly been moving in that direction, but it appears to me that many/most western companies started by moving their more price-sensitive products to China first (and, yes, transferred the relevant background technology along with them), but they kept back the more cutting-edge technology either in their home countries or in more trusted foreign suppliers in places like Japan, Singapore, Korea, Taiwan, Mexico and Brazil.
            My sense is there will be noticeable dislocation in low-end retail and furniture stores (think Bed Bath & Beyond) with a high %age of (essentially non-critical) goods coming exclusively from China; and little impact on high-value goods such as automobiles, aircraft, commercial building products, even home appliances and the like.

          As simple, or silly, as it might seem, Basketball might bring the current power structure to its knees. Thin skinned China got cute by putting an authoritarian tariff on the NBA. They made the mistake of attaching the HK struggle to the move. They were really speaking to Disney, Nike, ESPN and the NBA. Problem with that is it forces these companies to confront the demand as China framed it – communism vs democracy. It also puts direct spotlight on China’s brutal treatment of its citizens – do these companies really want to go down this rabbit hole to hell defending China’s practices? These organizations have very much played the sjw activist role (at the behest of China?) how can they now defend communism and brutality- remember this includes very out spoken players and coaches. They already look like hypocrites by avoiding the issue, it will only get worse.

          And in China, it gets worse for China.
          Just under 500 million people watched NBA games in China last year. They did so through a lucrative agreement between ESPN and Tencent – they re-inked the deal for 5 years in July. $250 million in NBA related merchandise were not only sold in China but also were manufactured there. The Chinese love the product- here lies the humongous problem for the chi-coms- try taking a beloved sport from 500 million. Taking away what the masses love has thrown many other countries into external and internal wars. They attached it to HK- this will get out and be top of mind every single time a person misses the NBA. China is in a world of hurt.

          By the way, so is Disney and Nike.

          And, the system is inherently innefficient, in comparison to free market, capitalist countries.

          For China, or EU for that matter, to agree to, and abide by PDJT’s reasonable demands, would,spell the collapse of CCP rule in China, and dissolution of EU.

          Neither will agree: there is NO DEAL to be made, with either. And, neither can survive a second term of PDJT.

          Hence, the push to impeach. He wins in 2020, and CCP and EU are dead systems walking. Global economic reset really doesn’t do justice to what PDJT is doing, it simply doesn’t adequately cover the SCOPE of the change he is making.

        Read it. Don’t have enough background to know how much China’s wings got clipped in the new deal, but it looks like they were forced to accept a few sacrifices. It might even be a fair deal, the only thing Trump has insisted upon from the beginning.

        Quick thought while I was reading. For a communist State, China seems to own a lot of internationally recognized corporations. At a guess, such entities would need to adhere to GAAP standards and honor contractual obligations if they do business abroad, even showing (gasp) positive cash flow and profitability to buyers and sellers they want to engage.

      If you look at the democrats’ totalitarian globalist policies, they resemble, “Xi Jinping thought”(group-think).

      Chairman Xi and the CCP has, “evolved”, “transformed”, and “progressed”(socialist dog whistles) Mao Zedong thought, to Xi Jinping thought. The cult of personality around Chairman Xi has given him the political capital to change the constitution to allow himself to be elected again. He’s also banned all political parties except the CCP and arrested democratic/republican activists.

      Socialism works until you run out of other people’s money. China needs Americans to build their “system” of crony socialism, to realize their “mandate from heaven”.

For example, the Berlin Wall, the 1994 House changeover, the Shah of Iran, etc. The Communists have had a 70 year run in China. The pressures brought about by trying to “unify” Hong Kong are much greater than we will ever know. Once a people are introduced to freedom, it is difficult to take away. My prayer is that the tariffs, and other actions by the USA will prod a regime change. That can only be done if we are playing a long game too.

    “No, we don’t expect you to change the [present …] fundamental nature of your national government.” And, “we can still trade.” However, “the fundamental nature of your national government” will no longer be used as a trade-chip. So, if you can now accept that things are no longer going to be shoveled into your lap as they once were, “we can still trade.”

    Boy dont pee on my back and tell me its raining.

    China is only where it is because of subversives in western nations who sold out their own. Diane Frankenstein, Joe Biden, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Mitt Romney and dozens if not hundreds more. Th USCOC is in that list as well. Without the purposefully acts of treasonist groups and individuals, china would still be in the stone age. Your system of government has always failed and can not stand without MASSIVE support from greasy people.

    Days are numbered. Mene Mene Tickel Upharsan!

      The USCOC is at the HEAD of the list and reliably rounds up the other members by means of bribes (“Campaign contributions”) to further the nefarious aims of the globalists (Bush Crime Family and their ilk) and the Chi-Coms!

      If I ever see anyone here defend “Poppie” or “W” or “Babs” as conservatives or even Republicans, I’m gonna seek their being banned! The Bushes are traitors of the worst sort!

    Yeah, under the Uniparty. Let’s see how they do under an America-First President for the next 6 years. It takes less time to tear down than to build up.

    I strongly support the president’s hard line on trade negotiations. I don’t have to pretend that I care about the Uighurs, though, do I? Any country that wants to keep itself free of Islam – whether it’s Japan refusing refugees, Myanmar suppressing the Rohingyas, Modi keeping a lid on India’s Muslims or China suppressing Islam – is entirely within their rights, if you ask me. They have 1,400 years of historical evidence of what happens when Islam gets a foothold. Self defense and self preservation are natural rights and there’s no moral imperative to be tolerant of a religion that is intrinsically intolerant.

    What China “achieved” during the past few decades was due to our corrupt politicians selling out the American worker to the Chinese, the theft of American intellectual property, and cheating. This anonymous Chinese official acts as though they deserved the Nobel Peace Prize, oops, I mean accolades for stealing.

    U.S. companies aren’t moving their supply chains out of China until they see if Trump is re-elected. Thanks to the Dem coup they now have some confidence he won’t be re-elected so they will sit on spending money to establish a new supply chain. This is going to be a drag on the economy right through 2020. High stakes poker game.

      ezgoer: I believe the cessation of new investment in China has already largely been happening for several quarters now (since tariffs first kicked in) and the investment focus has shifted and is accelerating to countries other than China. Major capital decisions can often be be made, or altered, in fairly short timeframes when the economic environment shifts.

          The NBA has no shame.

          Look for them to become the IBA (International Basketball Association) when the heat is too much for them in the USA. They’ll leave and never look back. Chasing $$$ makes you that way.

    We had confirmed, corrupt, globalist , neocon stooges (Sasse, Cruz, Cotton) signing that letter to the Chicoms yesterday, over the NBA and Hong Kong thing. This would be an indicator that the multinationals are reconsidering their investment in China. The stooges in Congress always do what their paymasters want. McConnell can’t lead this effort directly, as he’s completely wrapped up in his own family partnership with the Chicoms, but he’s likely starting to blow with the wind on this one. Like it or not, Trump has the whip hand on trade negotiations, and he’s not buckling to the Chicoms like the stooges always have.

    China would not ask the United States to shift to an economy that relies heavily on state-owned enterprises, or ask it to start fully funding education, as China’s does, he said, so why should Washington expect the same from Beijing?

    Please note that these words from the post are not in quotation marks. They are apparently not a quote from a Chinese official. Reuters most have written them, possibly to bolster the Chinese position and help China in its trade war with US
