Using maximum pressure to achieve its goals is a trick frequently used by some in the United States for international negotiations cal
上海千花网led “the art of trading”. Its main feature is using the means of multifaceted attacks and unlimited requirements while at the same time gaming against its opponent in m
ultiple issues that cross different fields, and then resorting to selected compromising moves to achieve the goals of core interests, to maintain hegemony through power, and to defeat the opponent t上海千花网
hrough bullying and deception. Some people in the US think that “maximum pressure” is extremely powerful, and decidedly useful when dealing with China.上海千花网
Is the “maximum pressure” measure really effective? In dealing with some small and weak countries, the US government has arbitrarily waved the big stick of sanctions and relied on its power and maximum pressure to impose its own interests. Some countries, shadowed by the powerful economic and political pressur上海千花网
e from the US, either because of a lack of overall strength or because of long-term dependence on the US, have been forced by the US to make compromises in accordance with the require
上海千花网ments of the US in negotiations, and they have to quiet down and let the US get what it wants. This is a situation that happens often and inevitably leads some people in the US to form the opi
nion that all countries, including China, will be afraid of the maximum pressure strategy and will certainly yield and surrender under their powerful pressure.
• Can trade protection make the “return of the manufacturing industry” to the US possible?
上海千花网女神会所Since the Trump administration came to power, it has put forward the proposal of “buying US goods and hiring US workers”, emphasizing the “return of the manufacturing industry”. Some people in the US
offered preferential policies to enterprises that came back to the US to set up factories. For those enterprises that moved their factories abroad, they were threatened with tariffs, forcing ente
rprises to return to the US for production. Can these trade protectionist practices really enable the US to achieve a return of the manufacturing industry?上海千花网女神会所
Whether the return of the manufacturing industry can be achieved depends first on the reasons behind the outflow of manufacturing from the US.
From the perspective of the US domestic economy, its manufacturing outflow is determined by how the local economy works.上海千花网女神会所
In the process of economic globalization, US multinational companies have transferred more and more industries to developing countries to a
chieve maximum profitability. Through industrial transfer, they reduce costs, expand markets, divert pollution, and i
ncrease the profitability of capital. At the same time, more and more capital has left the real economic sector with lo
wer profit margins, and turned to the financial sector to engage in financial speculation, leading to the hollowing out and virtualization of the US economy.
• Can economic and trade friction promote US economic prosperity?
Since 2019, the employment rate and the market value of the US stock market have remained high. In the first quarter, the actual GDP annualized quarter-on-quarter
preliminary value was 3.2 percent. Since the introduction of economic and trade friction by the US against China, the US economy seems to be
doing well. This has made some people in the US confident about constantly escalating trade friction with China. But to o
bjectively evaluate the so-called prosperity of the US economy requires a comprehensive and rational analysis.
Based on some indicators, the US economy is prospering. However, whether it will continue to prosper depends on the
state of capital accumulation. In the first quarter of 2019, the seasonally adjusted fixed-capita
l investment growth rate of the US private sector was only 1 percent, significantly lower than growth rates in 20
17 and 2018. According to US official data, US durable goods orders fell 2.1 percent from the previous month in April 2019, surp
assing the expected 2 percent decline. Shipments of core capital goods – a leading indicator of economic expansion – fell by 0.9 percent in April. Fr
om the perspective of development trends, economists are unsure about the prospects of the US economy. According to a recent survey released by the Na
tional Association for Business Economics, many economists predicted that the possibility of a recession in the US ec
onomy by the end of 2020 will almost double, mainly due to the US government’s trade protectionist policies.

ign reserves. In 1950, China’s fiscal revenue was only 6.2 billion yuan, and the figure rose to 113.2 billion yuan in 1978.上海419品茶微信

cal revenue exceeded 1 trillion yuan for the first time, and reached 11.72 trillion yuan in 2012, and 18.34 trillion yuan in 2
018. Between 1951 and 2018, China registered an average annual growth of 12.5 percent in fiscal revenue, providing st

riculture, forestry, animal husbandry and fishery increased to 8.63 trillion yuan from 139.7 billion yuan.
umqi Group’s Alataw Pass Station, the rapid inspection and clearan
c上海会所品茶微信e services for China Railway Express freight trains have led to a rise in imports.
He was speaking at an indoor transfer station where containers from a train that had arrived fr
om Poland (via Kazakhstan) were being loaded onto a train bound for Chongqing. T
he change was necessary because the track gauge in Kazakhstan is wider than in China.上海会所
According to Yang, the indoor transfer station, the largest in Asia, can handle 15 train
s a day. Because more trains are expected to pass through the port in the future, the company plans上海会所品茶微信
to transform an outdoor transfer station into an indoor facility so the procedure won’t be affected by strong winds. The 80 Porsche cars were just one of the cargoes being transferred that day.
“When the China Railway Express was launched, the trains were heavily loaded on their outbound journeys, but most of the containers were empty when they returned. Now, about 70 percent of trains returning to China are also heavily loaded. The change is very obvious,” he said.上海会所
According to the Alataw Pass Customs, from January to May, only about 30 percent of the containers on China Railway Expre
ss trains returning from Europe were empty, a fall of more than 9 percent year-on-year.
上海会所品茶微信Yang said, “As many companies have benefited from the cheaper, but more efficient, service p
rovided by the China Railway Express service, I believe more and more containers will be filled on the trains’ return journeys.”
The development of the Alataw Pass has also boosted the development of Alashankou, which is home to just 14,000 residents.
“Many businesses have noted the potential of the land port and the city, so they have set up branches and factories here. It’s h上海会所
ard to imagine that before 1992 the Alataw Pass was nothing but the Gobi Desert and strong winds,” Di, the Party chief, said.
