#2 Hmmm...waiting out Trump and supporting his opponents in the States doesn't seem to be working fast enough.

#3 I love the bit I read yesterday about Japan buying US corn to help in the trade spat. Lots of folks wanting China to fail but few step in and help. Can't help but wonder if Trump asked them for that assistance or if it was a present.

#5 US Equity markets up strongly this morning on this news.

As implied by DarthV, if a deal is made, there is going to have to be a lot of close monitoring after the deal, back in 2017 I was pretty sure the Trump Admin wouldn't know how to do this. By now, I think they should have the capability and the incentive to do the monitoring.

#6 Why is that China can own business and factories in the USA, while Americans cannot own business or factories in China?

#7 actually several American companies own and operate biz in China

this is not necessarily good and not necessarily bad

for example there is Abbott Lab

they employ a lot of people to make nutritional products that are sold to wholesalers in China, people are employed, the company makes a profit

they also employ a lot of people in R&D which could be done in a lot of places but China has some advantages for them, for example, lower salaries, for another, the initial testing of products may be done without compliance with US regulations -- true they will have to do the compliance eventually to sell in the US but the initial testing will eliminate candidates quicker than they would if the R&D was done in the US. They do have to pay various type of legal or quasi legal bribes (sometime disguised as no work consultant fees to the relatives of govt officials)

it is complicated

#8 Sooner or Later Abott Labs will wake up and find they have a sound alike named competitor, say Abatt labs.

#9 i would rather the R&D be up too the US codes than the chinese. Remeber the baby formula that was killing infants a few years back?

#11 And the baby formula thing was a fake Abbott Labs.
