This is your host Michael Feltz for today's segment.

This past July marked the 11th year of persecution against the spiritual movement, Falun Gong, perpetrated by the Chinese Communist Regime in mainland China.

During this time, tens of millions of non-violent Falun Gong practitioners have had their lives impacted by the negativity and brutal force administered by the Communist Regime.

Around the world, Falun Gong practitioners outside of the mainland have labored tirelessly to clarify the truth to the various levels of society through grassroots means and peaceful efforts, and their actions have not gone unheard.

One such activity was a rally to protest the persecution held in Chicago on July 17th and was attended by some Falun Gong practitioners whose direct experience has included surviving the violence in China.

This is your host Jeremy Ford for today's segment.

Welcome to U.S.-China Relations, this is Jeremy Ford for today’s segment titled “Higher Wages, Not Stronger Yuan, Will Help Chinese Workers and Reduce U.S. Imports” Thank you for visiting us at http://www.sohnetwork.com

Responding to reports on China’s rising trade surplus in July, many American politicians want the Chinese yuan to appreciate relative to the dollar in order to reduce the U.S. Trade deficit – by making Chinese exports more expensive, and encouraging Chinese consumers to buy more imports.
Although, in June, China announced that it would adopt a “flexible” exchange rate for the yuan, yet to date there has been minimal appreciation against the dollar. Pressure from American politicians has, provoking resistance in China, been counterproductive. However, the value of the yuan is not the main driver of the U.S. Trade deficit.

Robert C. Pozen of the Wall Street Journal wrote an in-depth article on this subject. I will take a moment to read a portion of his article:

“Labor is the most significant component of most goods exported from China to the U.S. If wages go up in China, then the prices of its exports will rise -absent a proportional increase in labor productivity. Wages are direct costs of producing Chinese exports, which cannot be easily avoided by currency hedging.

Welcome to U.S.-China Relations, this is Jeremy Ford your host for today’s segment. This segment is titled “China Plans To Turn Economy Into A Technology Powerhouse And A Global Leader” Thank you for visiting us at http://www.sohnetwork.com
In 2006, China’s leaders began emphasizing what they are calling “indigenous innovation”. This is a set of policies which indicate rules for creating a national list of products containing indigenous innovation. The policy, also furnished with recent revisions to patent legislation, should make it easier for Chinese companies to use domestic patents to block foreign competitors. It also contains a standard-setting process that is tilted toward domestic products.
This policy emerged as a major issue and caused concerns for foreign companies and governments throughout the business environment in China. Foreign companies like Siements AG, General Electric Co., and Microsoft Corp. feared this set of policies would shut them out of tens of billions of dollars in government procurement contracts. Executives and officials have raised particular complaints about indigenous innovation policies that they fear are designed to discriminate against foreign companies or to force them to transfer their intellectual property to China.

Welcome to U.S.-China Relations, this is Jeremy Ford your host for today’s segment. This segment is titled “U.S. Will Counter China’s Regional Expansionism”. Thank you for visiting us at http://www.sohnetwork.com
With China’s growing power, Beijing continues making expansive and unreasonable territorial claims in the East China Sea, the South China Sea, and in outer space. China takes the position that the entire South China Sea belongs to them, which is news to the Phlippines, Malaysia, Vietnam and Taiwan, all of whom have territorial claims there. The Chinese are also trying to stop lawful U.S. Military operations in the sea and making its periodic harassment of U.S. Naval vessels and expansive claims of maritime sovereignty. The South China Sea in particular is an area the U.S. Wants freedom of navigation, open access to the maritime commons, and respect for international law.
