Many Chinese manufacturers are behaving as though they have no future

The China Law Blog (previously) reports on the kinds of questions that western businesses operating in China are raising; China's serious economic downturn and rising authoritarianism have turned the site's normally businesslike posts into a glimpse of a kind of cyberpunk stranger-than-fiction dystopia (for example). A new post on the site describes the consequences of a sharp downturn in the Chinese economy: a new mood among many Chinese businesspeople that they are at the end of the long ...

Trump's "China muse" advisor has been citing a made-up economist for years

Another one of Trump's close cabinet has been revealed as a lying con artist, surprising absolutely no one. This time, it's Peter Navarro, a Harvard-educated economist and policy advisor who currently serves in the White House as the Director of the Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy (OTMP). He's basically served as Trump's right-hand man for all things regarding Chinese trade, despite, erm, having very little experience with China to begin with.

After President Donald Trump announced that he’d raise tariffs on Mexico until the “illegal immigration problem is remedied” Thursday, Senate Finance Committee chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) blasted him for “misuse of presidential tariff authority.” “Trade policy and border security are separate issues,” he wrote in a statement. “This is a misuse of presidential tariff authority and counter to congressional intent.” Grassley, though a stalwart Trump ally, occasionally pushes back against the ...

Big Tech: "If the USA enforces antitrust laws against us, it means China will win!"

Mark Zuckerberg offered to let Chinese premier Xi Jinping name his firstborn (seriously), Apple purged the Chinese App Store of privacy tools at the request of the politburo; Google secretly built a censoring search-engine for use in China, but America's Big Tech companies are sounding the alarm that they will no longer be able to promote America's global dominance if any of the US Big Tech breakup plans are executed. Which is hilarious, because breaking up monopolies makes industries stron...

Another ‘Bale Out’: Trump To Pay ‘Patriot Farmers’ Hurting From His Trade War

When the Trump administration announced last year that it was giving farmers hurt by the President’s multi-front trade war a $12 billion “bale out,” the government insisted it would be a one-time event. But now, as retaliatory tariffs in response to President Trump’s trade war — which he previously insisted was “good, and easy to win” — drag on, the administration is preparing another payment program. The move appears aimed at Trump’s political base, as he tweeted earlier this month about “ou...

China slaps 25% import tariff on US biodiesel even though it doesn’t import much

In China, Bloomberg reports that additional tariffs on US biodiesel imports are among the latest retaliation measures in the ongoing US-China trade war. Even though China imports very little biodiesel from the US, it will still increase the tariff to 25% from the current 10%. China also lobbed a 25% import duty on US-origin soybeans last year, with much of the trade switching to Brazil, but that that was still going to China is now at risk of cancellation due to increased volatility in the trade...
