China is Japan in the late '80s. It is destined to collapse as its population ages, manufacturing flees, and debt surfaces, certainly no "position of strength" to negotiate from. Ironic would be the nudge Trump provided to push China over the precipice causing a global recession obviating his reelection. Conversely, most nations have little skin in the game. 2019 will interesting indeed.

Gonna be an interesting year alright, America has the aces in these negotiations a booming economy, tariff increase within months granted China has done some advanced shipments of products to beat this tariff increase, Chinese economy already in slowdown, China loading up on more debt. If Americans see Donald Trump doing things for the greater good of America he could well get elected the Democrats haven't yet found a credible alternative.

It said Washington "cannot push China too far" and must avoid a situation that "spins out of control."

Sounds about right. The Great Satan must not overreach itself in these games with Xi's dangerous China.

I'm no fan of Trump at all but why shouldn't the US push hard when the Chinese continuously rip off US technology. I give kudos to the Chinese negotiating tactics. Don't push us too hard - or else. Inviting Kim to town is a masterstroke.

Yeah, China, we just want a fair trade deal, that's all.

"The U.S. economy grew at an annual rate of 3.4 percent in the third quarter and unemployment is at a five-decade low. But surveys show consumer confidence is weakening because of concern growth will slow this year."

They didn't survey me.

Whatever anyone wants to say, China is the only country that can say NO, to big bully America. Look at Japan , no only can Abe not say No to Americans but still killing their own Japanese to pay America big brother. I am not a Chinese from China but I feel sad for good people around the world. Down with bullies. Stand on yr own 2 feet like China & the Chinese who are Asians like me, yellow and not slaves to America.

For a country that a couple people around here like to claim is full of nothing but peace and love, they sure to like to threaten other countries a lot...

Unfortunately, there's no peace and love in Washington or Beijing currently.

China needs to be out of the WTO and removed from "most favored nation" status for trade until they behave like the rest of the world with their markets and trade.

They need to produce and share a plan to slowly open their market to foreign companies on equal footing with local companies that is completed in the next 10 yrs.

It's funny to read people talk about China not being in a position of strength. I guess a lot of people wouldn't mind the costs of the junk they buy increasing threefold.

Japan still hasn't done this, so I reckon you're thinking very wishfully. That said, I agree with you 100%.

Are you talking about the US or China?

Problem with China is they control state businesses that compete in the marketplace with private enterprises, so of course by default they cannot be fair to everyone but towards their state-controlled businesses

Funny. The US is threatening other countries with tariffs. China is threatening other countries with war.

It said Washington "cannot push China too far" and must avoid a situation that "spins out of control."

I don't think by 'spins out of control' that they mean they'll stop exporting rubber dog poo to the US.

Or maybe you missed the other day when they said that they would sink American aircraft carriers and kill 10,000 sailors if the US gets in their way in the South China Sea?

Yeah. That's peace and love.
