“If Chinese policies do not change, we will have only demonstrated our impotence to China and the world. Why is that desirable?”上海419论坛
He ended the article by saying: “There is a final problem with the Trea
sury Department’s manipulation claims. … We have only limited capacity to shape Ch

Daniel Ikenson, director of the Cato Institute’s Center for Trade Policy Studies in Washington, said on social m

o steal US jobs and depress wages. The Treasury Department designated China a currency m
anipulator, but the US can’t seek formal penalties until it attempts to strike a deal with China.上海419论坛女神会所
