Immediately after the three-day Dragon Boat Fe

亚博yabo平台千花网品茶微信vy internet users were busy arranging their s
hopping carts for the online sales day on June 18. “It is the best time to stock up on those daily necessities of life for the whole year,” said Hong X
in, a 28-year-old office worker in Suzhou, Jiangsu
province, who had her eye set on a toilet paper and 亚博yabo平台千花网品茶微信washing liquid value deal on Tmall, one of the country’s biggest e-commerce platforms.
She said the sales day was not just about saving money, but also about en
joying better products. “For example, wet toilet tissue is quite expensive if you buy it in
the supermarket one pack at a time, but it is much more affordable during the sales day if you buy in bulk,” she said.亚博yabo平台千花网
Consumers like Hong, who have a strong willingness to spend to make their lives easier, are adding
impetus to national consumption, which achieved an eye-catching performance in the first quarter of亚博yabo平台千花网品茶微信

Using maximum pressure to achieve its goals is a trick frequently used by some in the United States for international negotiations cal
亚博yabo平台千花网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亚博yabo平台千花网
hrough bullying and deception. Some people in the US think that “maximum pressu
re” is extremely powerful, and decidedly useful when dealing with China.亚博yabo平台千花网 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 po
werful economic and political pressur亚博yabo平台千花网 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
亚博yabo平台千花网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 hap
pens 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? 亚博yabo平台千花网女神会所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?亚博yabo平台千花网女神会所
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.亚博yabo平台千花网女神会所
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.
