    China never cared about intellectual properties to begin with

    Dang, so no Skynet and thus no Terminator movies?

    Maybe it’s just (long-term) revenge for the West’s taking/using paper, gunpowder, the compass, the mechanical clock, etc.?

    “… Historically, the world center of science has shifted several times, from Renaissance Italy to England to France and to Germany, before crossing the Atlantic Ocean to the United States in the early twentieth century, where it has remained for the past nine decades. Comprising only about 5% of the world’s population, the United States currently accounts for 35–75% of the world’s total scientific activities, depending on what measures one uses . Will America’s dominance in science last? Two recent reports by the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, and the Institute of Medicine, have raised concerns that the United States may soon lose its scientific leadership role and suffer negative economic consequences.

    Those who worry that America might lose its place at the center of world science are concerned not only about the possible decline of science in the United States but also about the rise of possible rivals, particularly China. In the past three decades, China has become a major player in world science. This is surprising, given China’s relative unimportance to science as it evolved in the West over the past several centuries. Even as recently as 1997–2001, China still produced only 1% of the 1% top-cited publications . However, a combination of economic and social changes in China over the past four decades has strengthened China’s science and technology role.

    China has experienced rapid, sustained economic growth since its economic reform began in 1978. Net of inflation, the annualized growth rate was 7.7% between 1978 and 2010. This economic growth has been accompanied by a massive expansion in higher education. In 1982, only 0.8% of Chinese ages 25–29 y had attained postsecondary education. This figure rose to 3.3% in 1990, 6.7% in 2000, and 20.6% in 2010 (6–9) (Table S1). These same two factors—economic growth and educational expansion—were central to the rise of science in the United States …" PNAS

    I’m surprised to see a cartoon from Joey because all the high schools are closed due to Thanksgiving break.

    When it comes down to international agreements… the USA doesn’t have the best track record for being trustworthy either. Bit of a “pot calling the kettle black” situation here.

    China didn’t steal our tech, we gave it to them. U.S. businesses send our tech to China for cheap labor manufacturing to make more profit. They screw American workers, screw the Nation, and cry when they realize they are threatened.

    Not even close. Biden openly still calls Xi a dictator.

    Orange Traitor calls him a friend. Then again, Orange Traitor doesn’t want to lose his 100 trademarks he holds in China and other places like Iran. So, he’s going to cozy up to all the dictators he can. I’m guessing OT’s beautiful letter from Kim of North Korea was receiving promise of trademarks in that country, after Orange Traitor turns the USA into a fascist dictorship.

    Let’s not let that happen.

    Vote Democratic up and down the ticket. No messing around with protest votes and third party wack-a-do votes.

    Democrats may not be perfect, but living under a violent fascist dictator would be perfectly awful.

    How many patents does Ivanka Trump have in China?

    Ivanka is a Russian name by the way. Trump loves Putin and Russia.

    Putin supports Iran, both Putin and Iran hate the USA and Israel.

    So REPUBLICAN Nixon did a “good thing” by making his deal with China (look at the cover of John Lennon’s “Sometime in New York City”) and the corporations were so smart to move manufacturing to China, Vietnam, India so that there were limited regulations. But the U.S. taxpayers had to foot the bill for the U.S. Navy to protect the shipments to the U.S. (the Navy BRAGGED about that in a commercial years ago) while corporations had their tax rates cut.

    American business gave the Chinese most of the intellectual property in order to access cheap labour. Researchers in the U.S. take Chinese grad students for the simple reason, no qualified Americans.

    As is too often the case, Mr. Weatherford expresses concern about a nonexistent issue. Our President is wise and experienced (perhaps the only advantages for his age) and understands diplomacy well.

    Joey you think “trickle down economics” is working. It doesn’t make you look smart.
