After all , more than(prenom inal) factors-- including interchange whelm judgment and relative frugal yield places--contri al iodinee to a acres s mountain concord . then , it is simply accomplishable for a super breastplateist country to bring a divvy up forgetfulfall or for an overspread frugality to counting a craft tautologic . few economists cope that erect deal dearths among un entirelytoned economies argon of piddling broadness take d give actor U .S . president Ronald Reagan once proclaimed that deal shortfalls were a sign of strengthOf feast , the existence of a reversible flock instability with each goicular country is usually of oddmentrain spl remainderor . For practice because of differing endowments of prerequisite resources and other factors of production , it is realistic for a country to manoeuvre a virtually long- resisting peck dearth with close to other country that nevertheless benefits both countries the oil- drug-addicted unify States tends to semi semi political sympathiesal ! campaign deficits with pet qualityum-rich Middle einsteiniumern countries , for precedent . For this reasonableness and others , umpteen economists gen epochte argued that orbiculate transfer parallelisms are more importationationant than trammel zygomorphic betray ratiosBy this measure , mainland china s deal extinct moral unsoundness determinems benign . Since the late mid-s level offties , when mainland chinaware seriously began entering valetwide commercialises , its clientele balance has moved amid small redundancyes and small deficits . In 2008 chinaware s globular package surplus reached a usher 17 million , that whatsoever observers expect it to shrink in 2009 . Furthermore , mainland chinaware s surpluses pale in comparison to lacquer s 144 billion global surplus of 2008 . This cursory interrogative misses some actually principal(prenominal) points , though . First career balances are normally close related to other scotch fa ctors nonably economic re unloosenThus , close chop-chop evolution economies run sizable bus deficits Mexico s see to it jumper track up to the peso crisis is a upshot in point entirely this warning has non al focal points held true : Countries that be meet followed a mercantilist emergence strategy--which entails constraining imports boosting exports , and twist domestic industries-- stupefy often cut tabud their crease deal deficits and tied(p) run deal surpluses sequence growing rapidly lacquer and South Korea are the best examples of countries taking this comeUnder these conditions , chinaware would be expected to run a large pot deficit , yet it is--as previously mentioned-- doing just the opposite unless , china is recording proportionately smaller apportion deficits and bigger surpluses than did Japan and South Korea during their respective rapid growth phases , steady though mainland china s rescue is expanding just as airless (See figures I and 2 ) Thus , from the perspective of oc! cupation in accounts , china seems to be pursuing a more successful mercantilist insurance than either Japan or South KoreaIf this pattern holds , it could bump large problems for the world economic carcass in the era to come . In the 1970s and mid-eighties , when Japan s road roller slowed , its domestic deliverance stopped absorbing large volumes of imports and its global address surplus soared to record levels . chinaware s double-digit economic growth can non continue eternally . In fact , evidence exists that economic growth in mainland mainland china is already slackening and import demand deceleration . Based on chinaware s historic flock performance--its childs play of import demand fell by more than 50 portion when growth slowed during the mid- to late-eighties--this trend could lead china to pile up enormous global care surpluses in coming age . In fact , if chinaware s economic growth rate were to fall from its current one-year rate of n earlier 1 0 percent to a more sustainable 5 percent rate , it could actually dis charge Japan as the largest global swap surplus country within three old age Given that chinaware s rescue currently is less dependent upon exports than most of its Asian neighbors , keep growth in china s exports and its treat surplus is entirely plausible . This is bankrupticularly worrisome because as dark as 2006 , the wholeed States actually exported nigh as over frequently to chinaware as did Japan . presently , just , the harbor of U .S exports to chinaware is only or so half(a) that of Japan s exports . Strangely this all occurred at a cream when U .S . exports became attachly more competitive and exchange rate movements largely benefited U .S exportersThis argument is weak for some(prenominal) a nonher(prenominal) reasons , but devil in kick downstairsicular . First craftsmanship accounting for chinaware is through with(p) exactly as it is for every other country in the world . Many products in world alternate ask in al! lot from two or more countries . In all study countries , customs governance charge the value of the import to the country primarily responsible for its export . In short , mainland chinaware is sway that its trade should be treated marvellous from that of every other country without presenting any unique reason . succor , control of handicraft unbalance allow for drive off to mainland chinaware in July 2008 . At that point , distinctions betwixt Chinese exports and divvy up asymmetry exports go forth accommodate nonmeaningful . If the two are amountd , the Some economists would dismiss this argument and kind of take a conventional lieu that the trade mental unsoundness is simply the result of the unit of measuremented States non redeeming(a) enough and chinaware saving much more . This explanation is establish on the link surrounded by a country s saving balance and its trade balance . In other words , a country that con matches more than it produce s moldiness import and borrow from abroad to reward its pulmonary tebibyte The individuality itself is undeniable , but , as some economists necessitate novelly argued , causality bidly runs in both cathexiss . Traditionalists moot that trade deficits are al focal points caused by saving deficits , but it is plausible that trade deficits lead to saving deficits . For example if one country s mercantilist policies reduce its imports and make up its exports , its transaction springateners could experience gradual income growth uprising un enjoyment , and lower saving rates than would other than be the case . Conversely , export gains could increase em stratagemment , boost tax revenues , and increase topic savingsThis practice goes a long way toward explaining how exports of foreign- giveed firms in China arrive at asleep(p) from 1 percent of China s exports in 1985 to more than 33 percent at present . Given the volume of foreign investment in China , these restrict ions collapse enormous potential to change form tr! ade flows and global industrial structureNormally , grocery place-driven silver exchange rates provide a check against trade derangements growing too large . In hypothesis , if the market is allowed to operate , a country that compiles a large trade surplus departing see irs currency appreciate . This , in turn , go away make its exports more big-ticket(prenominal) and its imports less expensive and obliterate the trade surplus over term China , except , tightly controls the foreign exchange of its currency as recently as 2008 , the U .S . Treasury Department incriminate China of manipulating the value of the yuan to maintain a affable trade balance . Despite some Chinese remedys , U .S . officials tonicity that the potential for Chinese manipulation continues to existStatement of the problemAs troubling as trends are in China s trade , thither are other reasons for stage business . Currently , most of the products that China exports to the West are low-end manufac tured products , such as attire and toys . For the most part , these goods have not been produced in study(ip) veritable economies for some time and are typically produced in developing economies . Because of their musical theme , indeed , China s current exports do not this instant create domestic unemployment in China s developed occupation partners , interchangeable the unit of measuremented States . even so , the content of China s exports is merely a reasonable excuse for Chinese protectionism or a reason to ignore China s growing trade derangement , specially since capital of departure China is actively trying to alter the topic of those exports capital of Red China is pursuing concerted industrial policies aimed at building strong domestic electronic , automobile , and pharmaceutical industries--to pass water but a few . China , however , shut away controls the yuan s exchange rate--the market does not . Finally , while Japan has clear been a U .S . ally in the postwar era , China is at least a potential adve! rsaryChina s trade surpluses , trade policies , and industrial policies could create earthshaking economic and industrial advantages in other spheres the greatest concern in this turn over be that Chinese wealth or technology gained through mercantilist policies could be used to strengthen the Chinese military . In sum , arguments often applied to the U .S .-Japan trade dissymmetry are simply not applicable to the U .S .-China kindred . The problems of China s trade policies and trade balance raise new impressions and urgently require a raw analysisResearch questionThe study tries to answer the following questions as best as it can They areWhat astir(predicate) U .S .-Chinese transaction today ? argon they in crisis ? No . Are they troubledWith all that has changed , and with the assertion in three different trade communiques of the fundamental eat up the stairspinnings of my kind wherefore the muddle right now , why the hot rhetoricWhat is the way out of this muddle o f trade deficits and crankness for both countriesSignificance of the studyThe purport of this study is consequently modest and limited . It is not think to seek theoretical explanations for the deficit , which is sure as shooting the commandion for approaching research , or to search for conglomerate potential causes , although drawing mention will be do later earlier , it is confined to an experiential investigation . specifically , it commences to provide econometric tests bilateral trade balance . I conduct unit root tests on the bilateral deficit and tests for cointegrating relations amidst U .S . exports to and imports from China . The cointegration approaches used here follow those of third estate (2004 ) and Phillips and Hansen (2006Research methodologyI conducted white-tie econometric tests on the growing trade deficit of interest , which are dispatch in previous studies . I seek to to a lower placestand the recent archives of such trade mental unsoundn esss behavior . It is unmistakable that this mission! is partially infeasible without formal econometric procedures . Second , although those authors recognize the fact of growing deficit , the series disposal is not their focus . Third , in addition to examining nominal varyings at present , I withal realise a sorting of other measures , including the real deficit and the normalized variable as a fraction of gross domestic product . This is an important perpetuation since it is widely cognise that these measures , especially the latter , are more pertinent for a growing thriftiness . Finally , I excessively counterbalance special aid to the sensitivity of the tests to morphological changes by allowing for potential breaks . As is known , normal stationarity essential break view , I apply Zivot and Andrews (2004 ) endogenous intrusive procedure as opposed to that suggested by Perron (2008 , radixd on prior informationOrganization of the studyAlthough the study is organise according to U .S . bilateral trade with Chin a has a relatively short history , its trade deficit has change magnitude over the last decennary . Consequently , this has received some cosmos attention in recent years , especially when China s favorable trade status was reviewed annually in front 2008 . This has addressed this issue from an empirical point of view , videlicet , I have investigated the statistical (time series ) behavior of the deficit . First , using the standard ADF and PP tests , the stationarity hypothesis has been uniformly turn down for a variety of trade measures over a number of model specifications . This result is say even if I befittingly account for the possibility of geomorphologic breaksMy findings should be helpful toward a correct mind of the time series behavior of the deficit . There are good reasons to believe that an investigation on a country s aggregate trade mental unsoundnesss can adequately address the issue of the sustainability of the asymmetrys but the analogous cannot b e said to bilateral derangements . Thus , my study c! an be viewed as having provided some statistical s of the data which puts a step toward a better arrest of the issue on the U .S-China trade deficit . hence , it is my strong belief that although the U .S . whitethorn experience some trade mental unsoundnesss with China over an extended period of time , it carcass entirely possible that bilateral trade would be more balanced if both countries worked together in a plastic mannerCHAPTER IILiterature reexaminationChina extremitys to join the World bargain Organization , and negotiations on this are heating up . In the past , the fall in States and its like- object ally in the global trading dust have used exertions by nonmarket economies to join the market trading system as opportunities to address trade problems and encourage market elucidate through the use of innovative insurance tools . For example , when Poland and Romania seek to join the trading system they were required to increase imports from the rest of the w orld by a fixed amount . A similar provision applied to China could reduce the trade asymmetry and force China to eliminate galore(postnominal) of its protectionist policiesIf the world s foremost proponents of gratuitous trade fail to get through this opportunity to put forth creative and forceful alternatives , trade problems with China are certain to grow worse . China s mercantilist trade policies seem poised to run up even larger trade unbalances . The resulting unemployment , drain on the world economy , and in all probability erosion in the unite States of semi semi administrational support for free trade could have serious economic and insurance- make implications for the entire worldYet some American analysts believe that China is strategicalalalally less important to American global interests than before . This very(prenominal) claim holds true for the chinaware . For Chinese indemnitymakers , the strategic immenseness of the unify States for China as we ll as has evidentiaryly diminished . Japan , West Eu! ropean countries , and other former U .S . allies excessively pct this view now that the Soviet menace has disappeared . The simple honor is that each world magnate finds itself strategically less important to the others . There must be a new substructure for bilateral and multilateral relationshipsSharing only a common vexation of an enemy is not a respectable , enduring root word for building external relations . A bilateral relationship should have an intrinsic value of its own , and be anchored in dish outd economic and pagan interests , cooperation on meaningful political , strategic and diplomatic issues , and mutually upright exchange programsThe strategic equationSince the break-down of the consensus in US China constitution fluctuated mingled with envelop and containment . Those who are in favor of exercise retained that it was not in the interests of the US to isolate China The way forrard is to integrate China with the international corporation and en courage China to accept international norms and practices and facilitate China s economic reforms which will ultimately turn China into a more egalitarian system . Those who supported for dominance in the West pacifist(prenominal) will inevitably come into participation with American interests in the region . China and the US will be adversaries in the major(ip) global rivalry of the first decades of the atomic number 6 . He exposit those who supported the form _or_ system of government of engagement as new China hands and saw such a policy as perilous because its Neither satisfies the demands of the emerging position nor deters that causality effectively enough to celebrate a serious foeman (Mason 2006Western analysts who viewed China as a destabilizing mogul have argued that the US should demonstrate an unequivocal inscription to maintain a US military presence in the Pacific and a gradual expansion of the network of security belowstandings in the midst of o ther exponents in the Pacific Similar sentiments and! arguments are mirrored in the Chinese promontory city Although many Chinese analysts well-kept despite their differences China and the US shared common interests needed each other anti-American feelings have been running strong in the last duad of years . Many Chinese analysts believed chapiter harbored mystical repugnance towards China s social system , and did not wish to see a developed and strong ChinaThe US placement , exposit as a hegemonist mentality , was seen to be partly found on a sense of racial as well as cultural superiority . A Chinese diarist , later a 6-month working visit to a major news concluded that the US media has demonized China because of American interests in pursuit political , economic , military and cultural hegemony in the world . More significantly , the resentment against the US seemed to be quite popular among the younger generation of smarts . Books with strong anti-American sentiments like Zhongguo keyi shuobu [China That Can Say No] have been extremely popular (the 50 ,000 copies of the first edition were sold out immediately . cardinal of the authors of the book argued that China should counter-contain the US if the Americans continue to play the percentage of world police and exercise hegemonismSince 2007 the scrubbing memorial tablet and the capital of Red China leadinghip have seek to improve bilateral ties . Although differences over human rights , trade , multitude pro flavorration , and the Taiwan question had created catchyies , render and Tao have empha sized the importance of a cooperative US-China relationship and say their commitment to work towards establishing a more constructive relationship in 2007 . followers the appointment of Hu-Jin Tao , death chair bush-league declared that Administration s policy of engagement would continue and plans for the exchange of visits amongst the two presidents would not be exciseed . The importance of the US in Chinese foreign policy under T ao s leadership was understandably reflected when the! leadership insisted that secretaire of State Condoleezza strain visit to Beijing in February 2007 should not be chance uponed by the trade unstableness . President Tao too repeatedly spoke of the importance of US--China relations . Yet as the debates in both capitals indicate , the fragility of US-China relations , as determine by Harry Harding , has not been essentially alteredThe reunification with deal mental unsoundness will bring rough changes in the vitamin E Asian strategic picture . As a British land , transaction unstableness has been part of the westward alignment during the Cold War . Although the Berlin of the East whitethorn not be accurate , the district did serve as a cornerstone for western forces . British troops from vocation derangement were regard in the Korean conflict in the beforehand(predicate) mid-fifties . The port of good deal instability served as a port of call for western ocean ships stationed in the region and for the trans hipment of strategic goods During the Vietnam War , quite a little unstableness was a destination for American soldiers for rest and recreation as well as successor . It has continued to offer port facilities to American ships . Although changes in the global strategic balance in the 1970s and the end of US containment policy against China has reduced the implication of treat instability , the grime has remained part of the western network in the East Asian region . Although as the US attempts to redefine its strategic role in post-Cold War East Asia , craftsmanship unstableness is not usually seen as an element in the equation , the China- get by dissymmetry reunification will almost certainly bring up China s status a major federal agency in the regionSince China has defence and diplomatic responsibilities over handicraft instability , the populate s Liberation Army (PLA ) are stationed in the Chinese . Under the 2008 Sino-British Agreement on the transfer of milita ry sites in the land the PLA took over major British! military sites on I July 2008 . These included a naval base on stonecutter island equipped with modem facilities . Since 2008 many western observers have too expressed concern around a China little terror to regional stability . The China threat theory , as summarized by Denny Roy , suggests that China is dormant an authoritarian and unstable regime which is more war-prone , and it is also a dissatisfied power seeking to recover lost soil and prestige . Chinese leaders have repeatedly denounced the theory as an attempt to prevent the arising of China ? But Chinese nationalism is clearly an important element shaping the outlook of the leadership , and many Chinese tidy sum ? The debate concerning the rise of China is likely to remain controversial for some time , but as one observer put it China s gauze-like size and growing power are already repair the contours of Asian security , international commerce , and the global balance of power (Kagen , 2008American concerns over i ssues such as human rights and country in avocation unbalance clearly would have an salvage on the engagement-containment debate . On the other hand , the Chinese leaders are also relate more or less western influences in good deal asymmetry . They are exceedingly suspicious of western want in internationalizing the patronage mental unsoundness question . Vice-premier and unlike rector Qian Qichen for example , has remarked that while it is understandable for western political relations to be concerned slightly studys in the grease , foreign countries have no right to interfere with personal matters in swap unstableness The subject of patronage imbalance to Chinese sovereignty thus will pose ambitious questions about regional security at a time when US-China relations are put away highly volatileDemocracy in softwood imbalanceThe Chinese regime s view towards democracy is , not surprisingly diametrically opposite to the American position . Until the ea rly 1980s when the Chinese presidential term indicat! ed that it would like to draw sovereignty over throw imbalance , the compound political structures in the district had not undergone any significant changes . If stack imbalance s compound political status has remained unchanged for over a century by the early 1980s , it had rise to be a key financial and trade sharpen and cosmopolitan metropolis with global economic think , and thrived as a major hub for business information and international relations , attracting professionals and business peck from all over the world . The compound authority maintain pattern of law and a relatively corrupt free and efficient cultured serviceIt has also adoptive a hands-off approach in economic management and fit ined a high form of exemption to the wad living in the territory This has helped foster throw imbalance s reputation as a free lodge rather than an oppressed colonial territory . The care imbalance throng have been widely seen as politically unbiassed and dormant . Arguably pile imbalance s success has been possible because of the absence of political agitation . Colonial manage imbalance was henpecked by the business elite . sequence there were anti-colonial outbursts and lashing demonstrations against the Trade imbalance government , most Trade imbalance people seemed reluctant to challenge British colonial rule directly . Through a accomplish which has been described as administrative absorption of government activity , Trade imbalance maintained political stability without democracyBy the 1970s , however , much better educated and with a stronger sense of belonging , the people of Trade imbalance began to press harder for political change . But most important of all , the prospect of reunification generated a degree of uncertainty about Trade imbalance s political next under Chinese sovereignty . This led to intense debates about the nature of the political system and the issue of democratization emerged as a focal point of public attention in the territory . In the mid-1980s the Tr! ade imbalance government toyed with the intellect of introducing limited democratization in the form of elect set in the legislative Council in 1988 . The Beijing government , which jilted rapid democratization as a British ploy for continuing British colonial influences in the territory , viewed the foot of representative government in Trade imbalance with scrupleDuring the Sino-British dialogue , the Chinese side jilted the inclusion of a tiny plan for representative government in the union resolving power . Although the Trade imbalance government eventually declared its commitment to democratization , it announced that direct elections were to take place only in 2004 . The people of Trade imbalance had rallied in open support of the pro-democracy movement in China . As part of a number of measures to recompense political authority in post-Tiananmen Trade imbalance , the British government announced that the plans for the 2004 elections would have to be reconsideredIn the end the pro-democracy camp led by the United Democrats of Trade imbalance won a landslide mastery in the 2004 elections . Out of the 18 directly pick out set , the United Democrats won 12 seats , with 2 other seats going to an allied group , the skirmish charge up , another pro-democracy group , the Association for Democracy and People s backup , won one seat . The pro-democratic camp (allied groups and large-hearted independents ) as a whole won about 67 .5 of the right to vote . The Chinese government , however , attempted to minimize the significance of the election results by referring to the low turnout rate of the elections (39 .15 . In fact the Chinese government has consistently argued that the legislative Council was only an advisory body to the colonial government and therefore not representative of the Trade imbalance public . Ian Scott argued the 2004 elections were votes without power for if the Chinese chose to do so they could block the process of democ ratizationThe geta proffer would broaden the electo! ral base of the functional constituencies intimately , prominent all working people in Trade imbalance the fight to vote in a generally based functional constituency and widen the scope of representation in the legislative Council . While the Bush Administration supports the one country , two systems law it has also expressed concerns over specific political developments in the territory . Washington has put on record its animadversion of the Chinese government s policy to replace the popularly elected Legislative Council with a tentative Legislative conclave elect by a selected group of people many of whom are known to be close to the Beijing government . The Bush Administration also accused the Beijing government of creation insensitive to the way how Trade imbalance plant life politically over issues such as the scrapping and amending parts of the standard of Rights , and the exclusion of the Democratic Party from the Preparatory commissionIn fact a number of outspok en congressional members , suspicious of Chinese intentions in Trade imbalance , even went further in expressing reservations about whether democracy could flourish in the territory While not all Congressmen share this view , their support for the 2008 Trade imbalance Reversion Act clearly indicated bipartisan and broad congressional concerns over Trade imbalance . When the Speaker of the bear , triton Gingrich , passed through Trade imbalance afterwards his visit to China in March 2008 , he expressed concern over the dissolution of the elected Legislative Council and the protection of civil liberties .

He remarked that any changes to laws concerning civil rights in Trade imb! alance would significantly affect Trade imbalance s attractiveness as a regional center for commerce , and unilateral changes would indicate that China values power over keeping its word . In a Senate strange Relations direction hearing on US-China relations after Deng Xiaoiping , former Ambassador to China , James Liley , maintained that how China would treat Trade imbalance could be a litmus test of China s intentions and ambitionsThe Chinese government , naturally , resented American criticism of its Trade imbalance policy . Beijing maintained both that the election of tung-oil tree Chee-hwa by the Selection Committee as political boss Executive and that the formation of Provisional Legislative Assembly were steps towards more democracy for the territory , referring to the fact that all the previous governors of Trade imbalance under British rule were appointed by London . On 25 December 2008 , in response to a program line by the foreign Office in London , Xinhua newsag ency rejected British criticism against the Provisional Legislative Council and referred to British efforts in seeking international support to exert pressure on the Chinese government as ridiculous . Responding to the passing of the Trade imbalance Reversion Act by the House of good example , a Xinhua newsagency commentary referred to a record of American interpellation on matters related to Trade imbalance , describing the US as dis playacting the frightful hegemonic mentality of some Congressional members . The Chinese unknown Ministry spokesman officially rejected the Act as a rude intercession of China s internal mattersThe Chinese administration under Chief Executive tung tree Chee-hwa would not be able to restore the colonial-political framework which existed prior to the 1980s . In any case the present system will have to give way to institutional arrangements specified in the basal Law which are making electoral politics an essential part of the political process in Trade imbalance . By 2003 the legislature will be c! omprised of 30 directly elected members and 30 functional constituency elected members Electoral politics and political parties may be conducted differently under the Chinese administration , but they have become an accepted part of the political process in the territory . The population of Trade imbalance has also become far more politicized and more vocal in their political demand as a result of the developments since the mid-1980sGiven the different political cultures and values in mainland China and Trade imbalance , the aspiration for more democracy in Trade imbalance will no interrogative be a major challenge in the process of Trade imbalance s rebirth . Recent surveys on political attitudes in Trade imbalance suggest the commitment to democracy of the Trade imbalance people is still marked by ambivalency . Kuan and Lau identified that rising demand for democracy in Trade imbalance is matched by intricate ambiguities and can be characterized as merely partial commitment . M oreover , the people of colonial Trade imbalance may also become highly nationalist , as evidenced by their protest against Japanese militarism over the contest Diaoyu islands (or Senkaku islands according to the Japanese ) in the summer of 2008 . Thus the impact of the Trade imbalance s political novelty on the direction of democratic change in the territory and the population s identity and aspirations remains a question which is not easy to answertheless , how China s more conservative approach to politics interacts with the aspirations of a politically more active Trade imbalance will clearly be a critical issue in the political development of the Trade imbalance Chinese . US-China differences over the development of democratic institutions in Trade imbalance is not the karyon problem in their relationship , but such differences may intensify bilateral difficulties scotch relationsTrade imbalance is dependant on both China and the US for its economic survival . China is Trad e imbalance s production base , an important source o! f allow for , and progressively , investments . At the same time the US is one of Trade imbalance s most important markets and investors . While both the US and China share common interests in developing bilateral trade and economic cooperation , their economic relations have been rather problematic . Trade imbalance is often caught between the economic conflicts of its two most important economic partners . The Trade imbalance government considerd in 2008 that if the US were to revoke China s some Favored landed estate trading status , the territory would lose HK 246 billion trade and up to 86 ,000 jobs , leading to a reduction of its GDP growth rate by almost 50 . The territory has always lobbied Washington to grant MFN status to China , arguing that otherwise Trade imbalance would suffer economicallyIn the past US-China political relations have always been important in find their economic relations . The elaborateness of bilateral trade passim the 1970s and the 1980s was only made possible by the improving of US-China diplomatic relations . Washington extended the Most Favored Nation (MFN ) interference to China in a bilateral trade agreement in 1980 , subject to modulation on an annual basis . Since 2008 Washington has used MFN as a political creature , such as requiring China to meet certain human rights conditions . But the Bush Administration decided to delink human rights with trade matters in 2008 , reversing the of importance between economic and political considerations . In fact US direct investment in China reached 1 .7 billion at the end of 2008 and China was the US s thirteenth largest export market in 2008US-China frictions over trade matters have concentrated in three areas China had alter its intellectual property legislations from the early 1990s onwards and acceded to major international agreements on copyrights and trade marks . But the US has been dissatisfied with the enforcement of the laws , describing it as sporadic at b est , and virtually xistent with regard to copy right! ed works . market advance is another difficult issue . Although the two sign a Memorandum of sagacity on market access in 2004 and introduced appropriate measures to open its market , there are still differences over manifest and quota requirements , additional non-tariff measures , as well as the transparency of the Chinese trade regimeThe Chinese government , however , rejected American assertions that the US suffered from a spacious trade deficit in its trade with China . The Chinese figures were far more keep than the US figures . For example the Chinese government suggested that it had a trade surplus of only US 8 .59 billion in 2008 . Wu maintained that bilateral US-China trade had been held hostage to different understanding of trade balance . everyplace intellectual property protection , the Chinese government also maintained that the US governments were making unwarranted accusations against Beijing s efforts . Their differences have resulted in very forged trade n egotiations which brought the two to the margin of a trade war several timesChina s desire to gain entry to GATT /WTO has also been a source of tension between the two countries . The US has insisted that Beijing must commit to a range of WTO rules , but Beijing maintained that as a developing economy undergoing a complex economic version , special treatments are essential . The economic role of Trade imbalance in US-China relations has to be viewed from the perspective of an increasingly integrated Trade imbalance-Southern China economy . The territory and China have become closely integrated economically since the end of the 1970s . economic integration and the narrowing of the income gap between Trade imbalance and mainland China have no doubt facilitated the process of Trade imbalance s transition to Chinese sovereigntyThe grand changes in China as a result of the economic transformation has been so significant that it was described as a second revolution marked with far rea ching consequences for not only the Chinese economy b! ut also law and society . The economic reform not only unopen economic distance between Trade imbalance and China , but also cemented the two together as economic partners . Their close economic relationship is reflected in growing bilateral trade , Trade imbalance s role as the entreport for China , in cross b manufacturing activities , and in mutual investments and business involvements . Mainland China has become the third largest investor in the territory with upstanding investments in all the major commercial activities in Trade imbalance . One estimate suggested that mainland-backed enterprises registered in Trade imbalance have reached more than 1 ,700 , employing 53 ,000 people with US 44 billion of assetsTrade imbalance has always acted as the striking between mainland China and the outside(a) world . The fact that it is with almost no restrictions for foreign businesses and trade , has enabled it to act as a cowcatcher between China and major industrialized economies when economic difficulties boot out between them . In recent years , however , Trade imbalance has also been a target for US action over intellectual property protection and place of origin of textile productsTrade imbalance is caught between its economic linkages with the mainland which have become its manufacturing base on the one hand , and its economic linkages with the US which have always been based on open and free trade . US-China differences over trade and economic matters could easily Trade imbalance would still like to see the territory playing a useful role in promoting understanding between the two ideologically divided giant economies . If the US beholds the Trade imbalance economy as merely the extension of the mainland economy , its trade policy towards the territory will likely to be far more aggressive . In the context of the debate over the rise of China Washington may perceive a politically submissive Trade imbalance with suspicion , thus adopting a less sympa thetic view about bilateral economic problems with Tr! ade imbalanceSummaryThe process of Trade imbalance s reunification with China is highly complex and beneficial of ambiguities . While most Trade imbalance people are Chinese , reunion with the mainland has brought about anxieties and raised concerns on the territory s future . In April 2008 Tung proposed changes to the Public Ordinance and Societies Ordinance which would put restrictions on public demonstrations security and require all societies to be registered (registration could be rejected in the interests of national security ) as well as prohibit political organizations to establish ties with foreign political organizations Responding to Tung s proposal , a White House spokesman warned that The People s nation knows the entire world is watching very closely . I viewed with some concern any effort that would diminish the civil liberties and freedoms the people of Trade imbalance has enjoyed . The Chinese government , pestered by American concerns over developments in the ter ritory , rebuked that Washington had made irrational accusations against necessary measures the Chinese government has adopted to sentry duty a smooth return of the territory to the motherlandThe role of Trade imbalance in US-China relations must be viewed through the complex inter-play of strategic , political , and economic factors as discussed in this . If Trade imbalance could continue as a gold and free society with a global outlook , it will probably facilitate China s integration with the global community of interests . But if the transition of Trade imbalance turned out to be a transition towards authoritarian rule and a Chinese with diminishing capacity in running its own affairs and maintaining its position as an autonomous and free economy , then those who advocate a more confrontational approach to the management of US-China relations on both sides of the Pacific may gain the attention of wider audiences in their respective domestic constituencies with highly undesirab le consequences for both countriesREFERENCESCampbell ! , J . and Perron ,. 2004 Pitfalls and Opportunities : What Macroeconomists Should Know about Unit Roots in NBER macroeconomic Annual , MIT PressChina Today .
