Enough already!

A couple of days ago I did a post on my favorite China promoter, Professor Baizhu Chen of USC.  In the post, I stated my theory that China needs us a lot more than we need China.  According to Forbes.com, I might just be right.  Last year, China’s overall trade surplus was $155.1 billion, according to the Ministry of Commerce.  China had almost a $300 billion trade surplus with the U.S.  Without the U.S., China would have run a $150 billion trade deficit with the rest of the world.  According to the article the reason that China has become ever more dependent on the U.S. is because orders from the EU for Chinese goods collapsed last year.  The author of the Forbes post offers the following advice; “All we need is for President Obama to tell the Chinese that they need us more than we need them.”  I couldn’t agree with him more.
