Study Times, a newspaper of the CCP Central Party School, recently published an article on the U.S. tendency toward protectionism in today’s trade policies. The article listed supporting cases like “Buy American” (Article 1640), the Chinese tire tariffs, and China steel pipe anti-dumping duties. The article also stated the belief that, as part of its strategy, the U.S. is stepping up the volume on issues like intellectual property protection and the Chinese currency exchange rate. The article expressed concern about “discrimination” against “Made in China,” but it also said trade friction has not yet “lost control”.
