 Why does the United States want to decouple from Chinas economy? Is China afraid of decoupling?

The ten themes are as follows: employment, eradication of new crown, end of dependence on China, health care, education, and bureaucracy, which he calls draining the swamp, protecting the police, ending illegal immigration to protect American workers, innovating for the future, and giving priority to American foreign policy. Together, it forms Trumps Manifesto: fighting for you..

This is the case. I think of the tweet that Comrade Jianguo sent last time, just China! He is not only homesick. China is the top priority in his mind. To put an end to Americas dependence on China, to put it another way, is to decouple itself from China, which raises two problems. First, why should the United States decouple from Chinas economy? Second, what should China do? Are we afraid of decoupling?

This is a description of the Sino US relations over the past few decades, and it is also a kind of explanation. On the whole, it seems to make sense, but have you found any doubts? Let me talk about a few doubtful points. One of the doubts is that the United States is a free trade country. It is because of free trade that the United States has risen and become the world hegemony. So why is free trade out of order now? Second, the United States now wants to decouple and implement protectionism, which is a gamble on the countrys fortunes and involves great risks. So why does America believe that protectionism will work? Third, at this critical moment, the United States retreats, which is tantamount to giving up the leadership. Its not like dealing with threats, its more like giving up. Its like the cards cant go on, you have to flip the table. This is very unproductive, which means to tell the world clearly that their own rules cant play. Shouldnt the hawks take the initiative to compete with China in Global trade?

There are so many problems in this version of the explanation. The fundamental reason is that it underestimates the United States, understands the United States too simply, and even understands trump too simply. As I said in the previous video, the United States has always been an isolationist country. Advocating free trade and leading the global order is not the normal of the United States. Is trump going back to this isolationism? Not exactly. Trump is talking about not relying on China, not on other countries. Please note that in Trumps re-election plan, there is also a clause that he wants schools to teach American exceptionalism on the issue of education.

What is American exceptionalism is to believe in a myth: America is a city on the top of a mountain, and God saves the world through America. Notice that God does not save through a church, but through a nation. The country is, of course, exceptional and special. The Bible says, you are the light of the world. A city built on a mountain cannot be hidden. . Reagan liked it very much. To put it bluntly, he believed that the United States was a Lighthouse. To inculcate American exceptionalism, we should start with dolls.

Why give China special treatment in Trumps re-election plan? (source: video synthesis)

When you go to see Trumps speech, what he has always said is that he believes that the United States has priority. The American way of life is a model and model for the world. American exceptionalism is interventionism, which has always been the case. Interventionism and isolationism are a pendulum. Do you think trump has put on isolationism and no longer cares about the world abroad? No, he immediately put it back and asked the school to teach American exceptionalism..

Robert Zoellick, former World Bank Presidentuff08 RobertB.Zoellick uff09A new book, America in the world, says that the relationship between the United States and its allies and enemies has always been a mixture of interventionism and isolationism. It was the United States that built the high wall, and it was the United States that invaded Iraq; it could contain the Soviet Union in the name of freedom, or support dictators in Latin America and southern Africa. We can call for the independence of the colonies oppressed by Britain, but when the British leave, we can bring the oil-rich Gulf area into the sphere of influence. This is a bit like what we Chinese call the combination of Confucianism and Legalism. We can do whatever is beneficial. This is the true face of the United States.

Britains calculation is that the colonies provide me with raw materials, I export manufactured goods overseas and open the door to free trade. I will certainly make money. However, the problem is that British capital makes money overseas, forming inertia and neglecting domestic industrial upgrading. Other industrialized countries give priority to protecting the domestic market and leaving their enterprises to upgrade their industries. The British market is open, and new industrial products from Germany and the United States enter the market, further helping German and American industries upgrade.

What are the key differences? Through the protection and guidance of policies, Germany and the United States pay attention to the domestic economic cycle. As long as domestic demand increases, they can provide economic power. Why can the United States engage in isolationism for such a long time? Why can it swing because the United States does not rely so much on the external market and can selectively decouple from other economies through tariff and other measures.

The United States caught up with the second industrial revolution, and the third industrial revolution, the information technology revolution, was far ahead. However, the United States is a capitalist country after all. The impact of the information technology revolution on the world is unprecedented, and there is no experience to refer to, but it has caused a more serious imbalance in development. Under the changes of the world economic structure, the United States has made a choice without foresight, to meet the interests of capital in globalization, seize the tertiary industry and high-end manufacturing, and allow most manufacturing industries to transfer to other countries.

In fact, if it was not for the emergence of China, it would not be a problem for the United States to do so, because the benefits of global division of labor are obvious. The American people can consume a large number of cheap industrial products, and the labor cost of enterprises will be greatly reduced. With petrodollars and military hegemony in hand, when national interests are threatened, the United States can completely control the pace and easily eliminate the pursuers, such as holding down the momentum of Japans semiconductor industry. Through the global order dominated by itself, the United States can turn the whole world into its sphere of influence and make the whole world internal circulation. But notice, the premise is that there is no China.

Now that China has this size, the United States can only put it back and return to its successful experience, protectionism, with the aim of made in the United States. What is the status quo? The United States has not been replaced by China in high-end industries, nor has there been a real fourth industrial revolution. In other words, the competition in science and technology between China and the United States will be a long-term, protracted and seesaw war. This is different from that of the United Kingdom. The United States turns back quickly. The United States wants to move its manufacturing industry back, which is the same as investing in domestic basic scientific research. To prepare for the continuous upgrading of the industry, it is necessary to cultivate domestic demand. The strong blue collar middle class, for China and the United States, is the key to the establishment of economic internal circulation. Whose social structure is more balanced and reasonable, whose economy can breathe smoothly.

At present, Chinas employment structure and polarization between the rich and the poor are better than those in the United States. Recently, Ren Zhengfei said that he understood that American politicians wanted Huawei to die. Mr. Ren did not say why Huawei attached importance to basic research. Indeed, basic research is the key to the next industrial revolution and upgrading of high-end industries. Huawei attaches great importance to basic research companies, of course, the United States wants to fight, but basic research is uncertain, and it is not urgent for the United States to strangle.

I would like to share a view that companies like Huawei have accelerated the construction of Internet infrastructure, which has significantly improved Chinas social structure and efficiency. There are not only jobs in the 5g construction industry chain, but also new jobs generated by 5g. Trump attaches great importance to employment. If you look at the employment in the United States, what are the large number of jobs, retail and supermarket salesmen. But the Internet has helped China to emerge with many new formats, such as takeaway, which is expected to become a blue collar middle class.

The mountains and rivers are different, the wind and the moon are the same day. Japanese monks come to Changan to learn a lot. However, the people of the Tang Dynasty went eastward to Japan to influence them. We can say that Jianzhen was also the Japanese monk who asked him to go. The Tang Dynasty had strict restrictions on going abroad without the consent of the imperial court, so Jianzhen crossed the border six times to avoid being noticed by the government. His story just reflects the Tang Dynasty open but not let go.
