US And China Facing Showdown On Free Trade

distrustIn the News (fromThe Guardian):China and US head for trade war” With oil prices rising rapidly, western governments including Britain have become concerned that higher commodity costs could choke off the fragile economic recovery, and they suspect China of deliberately stockpiling materials – in contravention of WTO [World Trade Organization] rules on free trade …

The US, with Europe, announced that it would start formal “dispute resolution consultations” at the WTO in Geneva … Taking China to the WTO marks a sharp deterioration in relations between the world’s largest trading powers. Sources in Geneva said: “In terms of trade disputes, it doesn’t get bigger than this.”

My Comment: If they don’t come to an agreement, then the cannons will start speaking as they have done in the past.
