The Rise and Decline of Nations, Mancur Olson, the lat e economics professor at the University of Maryland, argued that if societies don’t conti

Industry groups will try to use protectionist policy to protect
their position, thus hurting economic growth and leading to national decline, he said.
Opening up to foreign competition is an essential step toward preventing this ossification. Many historical ex上海千花坊品茶微信

try from competition just ends up with inefficient industries and a left-behind economy.

China has been able to maintain high economic growth for a very long period through this process of continuous institu上海千花坊品茶微信
tional innovation. This gradual process of continuous reform while institutions are built has proven much more
successful than the “shock therapy” implemented by Russia, Poland and others in the 1990s.
In the last few months, many additional reforms aimed at further opening up the Chinese econo

The just concluded G20 Summit in Osaka witnessed President Xi Jinping achieving diplomatic success in terms of upholding mult
ilateralism, partnerships, mutually beneficial cooperation and providing directions for global growth and global governance.
Delivering a key speech at the Osaka Summit, Xi continued to promote opening-up and cooperation by ann上海千花坊女神会所
ouncing five major measures. The president vowed to further open up Chinese market, including the release of the 2019 version of the negative list for fo
reign investment access, greater openness in the agriculture, mining, manufacturing and services sectors, and the establishment of six new pilot free tra
de zones. China will also expand imports, reduce the overall tariff level, strive to remove non-tariff trade barriers, and take steps to cut ins上海千花坊女神会所
titutional costs of imports. Xi also called on all parties to work together to build a high-quality world economy.
An important player for global governance The president pledged to take more steps to improve China’s business environment, implement a new foreign investm
ent system from Jan 1 next year, establish a punitive compensation mechanism for intellectual property rights violations, and lift all foreign inves
tment restrictions beyond the negative list, giving equal treatment to all types of businesses. The country will vigorously advance economic and trade ne
gotiations, including making efforts for the early conclusion of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership and
expediting the talks on the China-EU investment agreement and the China-Japan-Republic of Korea free trade agreement.
On the one hand, Xi’s speech brought hope to the world economy at a time when glo

Economic disputes will not come in the way of China’s reform and opening-up efforts to attract investment Over the past year, the US government has unilaterally provoked and escalated econom
ic and trade friction with China, with negative impacts on bilateral economic, trade ties and global economic development.上海千花坊 During this rare dispute, voices from home and abroad have made a lot of statements, making the cause and the facts clearer. China-US economic and trade friction in上海千花坊
volves a lot of issues, which need further clarification. The Chinese believe in truth and are not afraid of the clarifications.
• Is the Sino-US trade relationship a zero-sum game?上海千花坊女神会所 Some people in the US stirred up economic and trade friction with China with a
solitary reason in mind – loss of profit to US firms and excessive gains for Chinese firms in bilateral 上海千花坊trade, making the issue a threat to Washington’s economic and even national security. This view, which is full of Cold War bias, reflects the hegemony and zero-sum ga
me thinking. Is Sino-US economic and trade relation a zero-sum or win-win game? T
he answer is clearly both in theory and in practice. In international economic cooperation, trade relations are based on mutually beneficial exchanges, rather than a zero-sum game in which one side benefits and the o
t上海千花坊女神会所her loses. International trade can lead to optimized allocation of global resources, the common development of all economies involved and the common pr
ogress of human society. The history of international trade and the trade between China and the US have proved that such a practice is effective, and such p
ractical experience has long been the basic principle of international economic study. Since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two co上海千花坊女神会所
untries, bilateral trade in goods increased 252-fold, from less than $2.5 billion to $633.5 billion between 1979 and 2018.
In the past four decades, two-way investment has grown from almost zero to over $160 bil
lion, making the two countries a vital investment partner for each other. The history of Sino-US ec
onomic and trade relations proves that both countries have benefited in industrial development and optimization. The trade relations have cre
ated a situation in which both parties won rather than one in which China progressed and the US lost out.
• Is US’ insistence on “fair trade “really fair? Some people in the United States accuse China of adopting unfair and unequal trade policies that
have caused the US trade deficit with China. They tried to grab fair trade as a way to keep the moral high
ground in public opinion. However, what is “fair trade”? Fairness is a matter of history. In international trade, due to the difference in the stages of developm
ent, specific conditions and interests from different countries, in order to make trade happen smoothly, the
international community has formed trade rules through negotiations on an equal footing.

For an older generation of Chinese rock music fans, when the veteran rock band The Face appeared in the reality show they were awash in ’90s nostalgia.
The Face, founded in 1989 and comprising lead vocalist Chen Hui, the guitarists Liu Jingwei and Wu Jindi, the bass 上海千花坊女神会所

Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg said on Wednesday that the aircraft manufacturer

about possible reimbursements following the worldwide grounding of 737 MAX jets. The airlines haven’t disclosed how much they are seeking from Boeing, but some analysts peg industrywide losses at about $1 billion. In an interview with Axios, Muilenb上海千花坊

The 10,000-member pilots union for South
west Airlines said this month it will ask B oeing for compensation to cover legal costs and lost income for pilots due to the 737 MAX grounding.
上海千花坊品茶微信The union hasn’t said how much pilots have lost, but it could be as much as $9 million a month, the Dallas Morning News reported.
Southwest has 34 MAX jets in its fleet. The airline said it plans to resume MAX flights on Sept
2, but the union said “there is no accurate estimate of when the MAX will return to service.”
上海千花坊品茶微信Airlines have used other planes when possible to replace grounded MAX jets, but some flights have been canceled. The airlines appa
rently seek compensation for lost revenue as well as storage and the cost of preparing the MAX to return to c
ommercial service when the US Federal Aviation Administration and other regulators say it’s safe to fly.
Boeing MAX jets were grounded worldwide following crashes March 10 in Ethiopi
