China has been raping us for at least a decade and we’ve done almost nothing in response or to prevent further theft and espionage.
The White House’s Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy just published a report, titled “How China’s Economic Aggression Threatens the Technologies and Intellectual Property of the United States and the World”.
Given the size of China’s economy, the demonstrable extent of its market-distorting policies, and China’s stated intent to dominate the industries of the future, China’s acts, policies, and practices of economic aggression now targeting the technologies and IP of the world threaten not only the U.S. economy but also the global innovation system as a whole.”
