GE's silence regarding the WTO case against China for illegal subsidies to wind turbine makers points to the reluctance of multinationals to pipe up when China flouts international trade laws. Concerns about China's behavior voiced by a handful of companies earlier this year are the exception, not the rule.

    Billions and billions spent on government bureaucrat and Czar salaries, and you assert that there is no one in the entire system that is in charge of trade oversite. Maybe when they get all their porn sites taken away, they'll have time to get on with the real business of looking for trade violations.
    And Jeffy Immelt must still be smarting from the butt kicking he took from throwing down with the "X" Crap N Tax caper.

    US gov't and corps have bought the rhetoric hook line and sinker that China is the future. The corps are abandoning ship leaving the gov't to fight the good fight, but without corps sticking up for their own interests its a lost cause.
