Trump’s War With China Has Only Just Started - 21st Sep

The Chinese know something has to give – big time – in their position on trade and investment rules. Secondly, the problem the Chinese have is they have no idea what the administration’s fundamental position is. So the levels of complexity from a Chinese negotiating perspective are massive.

But what people underestimate the significance of in Washington, is that the Chinese have politics too; it’s not just a western political reality. The whole notion of backing down – or being seen to back down within Chinese politics to US pressure – is almost as politically unsaleable in Beijing as it is in the Trump heartland. So the bottom line: China wants this dispute resolved as quickly as possible but it is a misreading to assume the Chinese are politically desperate to resolve it.

A constructive realism for a common purpose must be formulated. Striking out collaboratively against climate change is also helpful. Truly working towards a jointly acceptable set of solutions should be the goal of both China and the US. Furthermore, taking a leap of faith to try to attain a dream for all of humankind, not just the Chinese Dream or American Dream is a challenge for all of us.
