Chinese official Jin Baisong invokes the specter of a trade war as the best way to "impose sanctions" on Japan. The already-weak Japanese economy would be crippled without Chinese demand, he argues, while China would barely miss a cutoff of exports to Japan. Fitch, meanwhile, threatens ratings downgrades across a range of Japanese exporters if the dispute between the two nations drags on.

    The USA should extend its economic and trading relation with Jp, encouraging multinationals to joint ventures-- that extended cross-Pacific economic ties would not only reinvigorate, truly reinvigorate the USA economy, but also Jp in the longer term. Not insulting Cn economic relations.

     

    I wonder how the YAKUZA would respond to this, it would probably fit well into Washington politics, except the cutting off of the pinky.

    American consumers should try to trim (not eliminate) our Chinese purchases.
    I for one would not mind buying less shet but of higher quality from the USA, Japan, Canada, UK, Taiwan, Israel, South Korea & other friends of the US.
