Anti-China? Yes. Pro-America? No.

It’s easy to mistake the discourse of China hawks for sincere patriotism. While Donald Trump ran on a platform of bringing American industry home, the Trump administration’s actual policies in recent years have not achieved this.

The Chinese government’s international message, that its nationalistic command economy provides for superior development in comparison to liberal-capitalism, appears self-evidently true. This is a problem for American plutocracy, which tells its own citizens and those of other nations that in fact free trade and liberalization are the path to prosperity.

Rather than copying what works for the Chinese economic model (nationalizing industry, strong regulations against foreign influence, etc), American capital and the Trump administration have worked to win over Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is an advocate for mass privatization, weakening the state, and deregulation, a strategy the phony nationalist refers to as “minimum government, maximum governance.”

In Asia, economic prosperity and stable growth is more compelling than military power, and America’s elites have begun making overtures towards India in hopes of creating a counter-weight to China.

Last year, the US-India Strategic and Partnership Forum announced that 200 American manufacturers were interested in moving their supply chains from China to India, not America. The big barrier appears to be India’s low quality infrastructure and the lack of an existing free trade agreement with the US.

That's a fair assessment.

The CDC basically channeled all testing to their centers. Had antiquated testing and was caught flat footed

That shit won't happen again. The same way no one will ever trust China again.

But, not getting manufacturing out of China is the fault of a lot of people and it isn't because Trump hasn't been trying. Too bad it took a world wide pandemic to bring enough light to the subject and China made a bad calculation to try and hide it. It hurt their economy worse than if they had been straightforward.

Identifying our weaknesses so we can fix them is always a good thing.

Amazing how China's middle class owns multiple properties while working at Pizza Hut.

But, we will trust the - known for their lies - entities for our information- how crazy is that?
I have no reason, that I've seen, to not trust China. I have seen how our media and gov't lie- China, as near as I can tell, is looking out for China. The US media and the US gov't is looking out for the US media and the US gov't.- and they're willing to openly, blatantly, knowingly lie to US citizens for that purpose-

Corporations are not patriotic -- unless that patriotism results in maximizing profits.....

Unless you are going to have government regulate corporations to the point they can determine where their supply chain can or can't come from -- there will never be manufacturing jobs leaving China and coming to the US

That is just BS politicians feed people who believe in fairy tales
