China President Hu Jintao has landed in U.S. on his official state-to-state visit and was greeted at the airport by U.S. Vice President Biden today.
The U.S. media continues the same old tune: ‘currency manipulation’, ‘human rights’, and etc. I hope Presidents Hu and Obama make pragmatic breakthroughs at the conclusion of this visit.
For now, I would like to take this occasion in highlighting some of our recent posts dispelling this various nonsense in the U.S. media.
In November 2010, a U.S. congressional committee made some astounding remarks against China on the above issues. We where shocked a branch of the U.S. government would stoop so low and take such an unintelligent stance like the media. Allen and I wrote this, “A point by point rebuttal to the 2010 USCC Annual Report.”
For a more in-depth take on the U.S. trade deficit with China and the U.S. media charge of “currency manipulation,” Allen offers truth in “Fighting for Jobs in a Globalized World” and “The Politicization of the Yuan.”
On ‘human rights’, the U.S. media like to remind Americans of the recent Liu Xiaobo Nobel Peace Prize Award. “The 2010 Nobel Peace Prize to Liu Xiaobo and what it means to the Chinese” explains why the Chinese view Liu as a criminal. Two professors from Hong Kong, Sautman and Yan, made the same case, “Liu Xiaobo Deserves an Ig Nobel Peace Prize.”
