Export numbers blind over US company branches in China

It is difficult to believe the US government would practice economic isolationism in this day and age, cutting itself off from the interconnected interests of global economic cooperation.

China tariffs offer US a dose of its own medicine

China has always emphasized the importance of Sino-US relations. But lately, we have witnessed at least a few American hard-liners applying even greater pressure on China.

This is how a market economy works and there is no room for the Trump administration to forcefully change the rules.

Russian diplomat expulsions signal crude side of Western intention

It is firmly believed that accusations levied by one country to another that are not the end results of a thorough and professional investigation should not be encouraged. Simultaneously expelling diplomats is a form of uncivilized behavior that needs to be abolished immediately.

China won't cave in to Trump's trade bluster

China readies as Trump's trade war plan spells failure

Washington should dismiss the idea that China will concede in this trade war because it will find no white flags to mark China's surrender. Instead, Washington will charge blindly into a bullfighter's red cape.
