    Am I about to praise Obama twice in one week? YES!!! Give credit where credit is due.

    Its about time someone exposes China's unfair trade practices. Practices, that if American was doing, would get bashed unmercifully for. He called them out and made credtiable threats!

    Bravo Mr. President!

    policy of printing money to boost a sluggish economy, which is weakening the dollar.

    Someone has got to nail that down. It's not only hurting the United States..it's hurting the entire world. If China wants to be a major player..they have to start by acting responsibly.

    Europe is afraid that America will get VERY competitive in the world market with a weakened dollar perhaps?

    Don't get me wrong a weaken dollar will be bad for American consumers, since prices will go up, but it makes our exports cheaper across the board. Hence strengthening American manufacturing.

    Weakening the currency has been China's main strategy for decades. China's wages have well surpassed most of the third world's wage a while ago. Well beyond all of Latin American, most Asia and Africa countries. But keep their currency weak, allowed them to keep their exports strong.

    Lastly, when we start listening South Africa- the AIDS, rape, murder, car jacking, baby rape, absolute shit economy (which was squandered after apartheid ended), racist, discriminatory and STILL apartheid country- then we have issues! How the fuck are they a G20 country? Did we need to toss a bone to Africa? Is there really no country better? AMAZING!

    Apparently China is supposed to do as we say, and not as we do.

    If any international forum is emblematic of why it is bad for America to have a Weak President who does not believe in traditional American Values, it's the G-20.

    KK,

    Your all about business and free market?

    When you biggest customer starts to get mad about shady and back-stabbing business practices THEY VOICE THEM TO YOU! As the seller if you don't listen and keep them up, you lose the customer. They start taking punitive measures against you.

    Why should it be any different on global market?
