mercialization of this forefront technology and bolster the nation’s core competitiveness.

It currently plays a leading role in the network. All the oth

her telescopes have diameters of 20 meters at most. Tianma can receive more signals than all of them combined,” Shen said.

Tianma has also played an indispensable role in determining orbits for China’s moon an

The government is tackling illegal disposal of lead-acid fuel cells, w

hich has resulted in pollution and higher health risks. Hou Liqiang reports from Pizhou, Jiangsu.

China is the world’s largest manufacturer of lead-acid batteries, which are widely us

ed to power electric bikes and supply the ignition spark for conventional automobiles.

However, spent batteries, which are officially designated as hazardous waste, are often dispose

d of illegally, squandering large amounts of valuable lead and causing pollution that is costly to remedy.

Commenting on the suggestion of quickly shifting sou

rcing to countries other than China under the tariff specter, the FDRA said there had been com

panies moving away, but “footwear is a very capital-intensive industry, with years of planning required to m

ake sourcing decisions, and companies cannot simply move factories to adjust to these changes”.

Douglas H. Paal, vice-president of the Asia Program at the Carnegie Endowme

nt for International Peace, said the footwear industry’s complaints are justifiable, albeit a little late.

“Since their issues do not involve critical technologies, the

re might be room for the administration to offer a degree of relief,” Paal told China Daily.

The US’ trade deficit stems from its extremely low natio

nal savings rate and has to be compensated by other countries’ national savings, which in tu

rn adds to the trade deficit. On the other hand, China’s efficiency in the manufacturing industry makes it a lar

ge exporter of manufactured goods to the US and helps it sustain its high savings rate.

A high growth rate means higher trade deficit for US

Given that the US economy is driven by domestic demand, consumpt

ion in particular, instead of exports, a high rate of ec

onomic growth will widen the trade deficit, as it would have to import more products than it exports. In such a sit

uation, the implementation of large-scale infrastructure construction projects would further increase the trade deficit.

Moreover, Washington has forbidden US companie

 to sell chips to ZTE, a Chinese multinational telecommunications equipment and

systems company, even after imposing huge fines on the company. By so doing, the US has act

ually encouraged China to increase investment in its high-tech sector. So, even if China and the US were to strike a de

al, China would be prompted to import lower volumes of energy and agricultural products from the US.

In macroeconomic terms, the China-US trade dispute has added h

uge uncertainties to the US economy and raised the likelihood of recession. Which cou

ld thwart the US president’s chances of being re-elected in 2020. And the trade dispute c

ould prevent the US from taking the measures it intends to in order to consolidate its national power.

The phone call took place days after the US Commerce Dep

artment announced on Wednesday it will add telecommunications eq

uipment maker Huawei and its affiliates to the Entity List on Wednesday. Being on the list

bars the company from buying US technology without government approval due to security concerns.

On the same day, US President Donald Trump signed an executive order that bars US companies fr

om using telecom equipment from manufacturers considered a national security risk, without mentioning Huawei by name.

Such moves, as well as the increase of tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods earlier this m

onth, complicated the prospect of continuing the bilateral trade talks that have been ongoing for more than a year.

Washington foolish to defy economics law and turns in the

The root cause for the repeated twists and turns in the China-US trade talks lies, to a grea

t extent, in the United States’ serious deviation from, and disdain for, the objective laws of econ

omics. The fact that China will never accept its unreasonable demands further complicates the matters for the US.

The US administration’s often competing and clashing objectives-though m

any of them are understandable-cannot be realized simultaneously. For instance, the U

S hopes to revive its industries and boost its real economy while maintaining the huge bubble in its financial market.

A dream called sustainable reindustrialization

Yet the US expends huge amounts of its resources just to maintain its mo

netary hegemony and thus ensure its financial sector offers higher pay and return on inv

estment compared with the real economy sectors, which helps it to maintain its advantage in
