“In welcoming China, Europe is swimming with the tide of history; America is struggling against it.”
That is the most coherent quote from this tail-chasing article from the Economist on Chinese direct investments abroad. The article mostly seems to argue that Americans ought to get over it like the Europeans have and welcome our communist friends in with open arms. Of course, the article then goes on to admit the English (that is the people of England!) find getting into bed with China almost as distasteful as their American counterparts.You can read that article, Welcome, bienvenue, willkommen, here
Should we welcome China with open arms? I remain unconvinced.
After reading this report written by Amanda Teegarden, Executive Director of OK-SAFE (Oklahomans for Sovereignty and Free Enterprise) who was our eyes and ears at the recent US-China Conferences held last week in Utah, I am even less enthusiastic.
