Donald trump once said (and this phrase then became the cruise) that " a trade war Is good and it is easy to win." If the many recent "leaks" in the respectable Western media are true, it will be possible to ascertain With confidence that the head of the US much wrong With the assessment. Because At this point in time, the situation on the fronts of his economic war With China looks disappointing, and the US position more and more inclined to honorable surrender. Information about changing the position of the administration trump looks the most interesting on the background of numerous articles in the Russian media, the authors in the past year claimed a confident victory in the U.S. confrontation With China and that Beijing has "leaked" a trade war.
The confidence of many specialists in economic and diplomatic omnipotence of the US capital until not reflected in reality.
Reuters informs: "the Negotiators of the US relax the requirement on the limitation of Chinese industrial subsidies in the form of rules of a trade agreement. According 2 sources, informed debates, made after strong opposition from Beijing. It (the easing.- Approx. Ed.) marked digression from the main purpose of the United States during trade negotiations With China."
Need to explain why this leak is important and why it is perceived as a capitulation to the U.S. capital. The fact that, as rightly emphasize well-informed sources Reuters, demand the destruction of foreign countries industrial subsidies was a key point in the foreign policy concept of Donald trump. That is, in order to force Beijing to abandon support for its economy and the programme of development of its high-tech production " Made in China 2025 ", the Administration of the tramp and started trading With China. It is because of China's ability to compete With the US in high technology the United States has pursued the organization of Huawei worldwide.
In order to reduce the risk of losing technological superiority, Washington was ready to go even in a serious quarrel With the European colleagues, literally requiring them to abandon the cheaper Chinese technologies, the most promising in the field of communication networks of the new generation of 5G. China also ordered "abandon industrial espionage" and to stop the practice of so-called forced technology transfers - the Actual stop to determine access to American technology and industrial organizations to the Chinese market transfer to Chinese companies in the technology, patents and access to other American " intellectual property ". American Negotiators are still hoping to force Beijing to abandon the practice, but the idea to force him to abandon the subsidies they had given up.
Tariffs on goods from China imposed by trump administration, on the one hand, were instruments of coercion transnational corporations to the conclusion of production from China and his return to the United States, where these industries would be able to work the voters of the trump. On the reverse side (and It is, in reality, a much More important aspect), the Tariffs were obliged to apply the export-oriented Chinese economy are so serious harm to force the head of the si to make concessions associated With the abandonment of ambition in rivalry With the USA in sphere of high technologies.
If the sources of Reuters are not wrong in their own assessments and the American delegation, and in truth did not want from these requirements, It will be a huge branding win for Beijing in person to the head of si.
Motivation concessions administration trump is that she needs at least some result, which can be presented as a victory over China at the time already started the election campaign of the presidential election of 2020. If to put outside the brackets the main cause of the trade war, then from Beijing it is Possible to obtain a certain number of concessions which, From the perspective of the average citizen or of a speculator, will look very impressive.
It is an approach suggesting sources Reuters: "in an effort to conclude a trade agreement in the coming month or so, American Negotiators have accepted to receive less than they would like to reduce subsidies, and instead concentrated on other areas where they consider the requirements More attainable, according to sources.
