    Chinese Government bans iTunes Books and Movies, in an effort to promote local business' , but more so to also control the content the Chinese population has access to.

    It's quite obvious China doesn't do free trade with US.
    US should do the same. But then again corporate like Walmart etc need China for the cheap labor, the hell with American jobs. Can't believe I say this, Donald Trump is right about China and economic issues in US.

    Donald Trump is right about China and economic issues in US

    You know he's a republican right? Their economic philosophy is feudalism masquerading as a free market system. The best part is, their logic is beyond stupid. They don't believe in regulation, yet they want to regulate trade with China.

    Think about that. Why would it makes sense in the USA to have no regulations, but when it comes to international trade, then suddenly their should be regulations? Their entire philosophy is contradiction and lore.

    Everyone here knows that point of a business is to make profit. We all agree on that. Right? So then why do they think businesses create jobs? Businesses only create as many jobs as possible, and pay as little as possible to maximize profit. That just makese sense, yet they throw around silly buzz words like job creators.

    The issue isn't China, the issue isn't Mexicans, the issue isn't anything other than rich powerful people making laws that benefit themselves.

    The black plague gave the masses a little more power in feudal europe because there weren't enough people and feudal lords had to compete with other feudal lords for limited labour supply. World War 2, the fumes of which we are still living on today, allowed a massive expansion of the middle class because women were mobilized in huge numbers and the government put everyone to work and was made huge dollars lending money to England and France. Massive amounts of wealth moved from England and France to the United States which was used not to buy yachts but to create a middle class. 70 years later and all that wealth has been sucked right back up the top of the food chain, to the new feudal lords and it will take some massive change to get it back. They aren't going to hand it back. And if you're insane enough to think Billionaire Donald Trump is the answer to billionaires exploiting the general populace, well wonderful.

    There're so many philosophies and theories whether we should support or oppose free trade.
    US lost I think around 5 millions manufacturing jobs since free trade in early 1990s.
    Actually Sanders agree with Trump when it comes to China. Or at least has similar opinion. Sure business is supposed to make profits. But there are many ways to do it. What I'm saying is it isn't fair when it comes to trade agreement between US-China.
