US Says Must Slow Down China’s Rate of Innovation

Imagine Beijing saying its project was to slow down America's innovation rate

Editor’s note:  Some of it is framed in the context of China “ripping off our IP”. But that is not the whole story. Plus there is no legitimacy to IP monopolies and IP shakedowns anyway. It’s a way for multinationals to use the power of the state to stifle competition via the enforcement of the ludicrous idea that because somebody has already done what you’re doing you’re not allowed to also do it yourself.


Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo said Tuesday that the U.S. will rally allies in order to mount pressure on China, the world’s second-largest economy, an approach that differs from the “America First” policies pursued by President Joe Biden’s Republican predecessor, Donald Trump.

“America is most effective when we work with our allies,” Raimondo told CNBC’s Kayla Tausche in an exclusive interview. “If we really want to slow down China’s rate of innovation, we need to work with Europe.”

“They’re ripping off our IP, they are not playing by the rules. It’s not a level playing field. And so we need to hold their feet to the fire to make sure that they do that,” she said, adding that Beijing is “not living up to the agreements that they made.”

When asked if Commerce would take some actions unilaterally to address the great power competition between the U.S. and China in shaping security practices and setting global trade norms, Raimondo again pointed to allies.

“We don’t want autocratic governments like China, writing the rules of the road. We together with our allies, who care about privacy, freedom, individual rights, individual protection, we need to write the rules of the road,” Raimondo said.

The Chinese Embassy did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

On Wednesday, Raimondo alongside Secretary of State Antony Blinken and United States Trade Representative Katherine Tai will represent the Biden administration at the inaugural meeting of the U.S.-EU Trade and Technology Council, or TTC, in Pittsburgh.

Biden’s team will meet with European Commission Executive Vice Presidents Margrethe Vestager and Valdis Dombrovski in hopes of addressing trade disputes, streamlining regulatory procedures and developing “rules of the road” for emerging technologies on both sides of the Atlantic.

“We have to work with our European allies to deny China the most advanced technology so that they can’t catch up in critical areas like semiconductors,” Raimondo said, adding that the Biden administration plans to deepen cooperation with Europe on export controls.

“We want to work with Europe, to write the rules of the road for technology, whether it’s TikTok or artificial intelligence or cyber,” she said.

South China Morning Post:

China has hit back at US Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo’s  comment that Washington should work with Europe to slow China’s innovation, calling it a “typical hegemonic act”.

“The comment revealed the US’ real intention to make every attempt to contain and suppress China’s development,” foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said in Beijing on Thursday.

“It’s a typical act of autocracy and hegemony,” she said, responding to Raimondo’s comment on CNBC on Tuesday.

Raimondo’s comment was made a day before Washington announced the formation of the US-EU Trade and Technology Council , which aims to reduce their shared reliance on China’s manufacturing juggernaut while strengthening their respective domestic supply chains involving strategic technologies.

In LA they are eliminating the ‘F’ in school grades,,, THEY SAY because it is White Supremacy and apparently the minorities cannot do the work. Of course they can’t. The lazy teachers are not building on the basics. They’re too busy with the indoctrination. This should be a red flag to any minority group. IMO…. Home School!

When I was in government skool most everyone including females and minorities did about the same grade wise. Yes, some did better and some worse but most passed. It started going South when the minorities achieved victimhood.

In my time a failing grade was anything below a 64. In LA it is now 49! There was no massive failures and yes the skools were desegregated.

What we have here is a bunch of illiterate, lazy and woke teachers and administrators using race and sex as an excuse for the newly crowned victims doing poorly when it is entirely the school systems fault by indoctrinating rather than teaching.

While the US emphasis is on the non achievers and shuts out the creme de la creme as White Supremacists, China on the other hand has tough standards and the creme de la creme are pushed to achieve and innovate.

Guess who will do better…..

Meritocracy always wins in the long run. The West was all about Meritocracy in the past. Just look at the founding fathers…..men of merit. Current kakistocracy is a joke.

You hit the nail on the head. It is now probably too late for the U.S. to catch up to China in education. The country that educates better is going to win and right not China is far ahead.

And the band plays on in Washington, DC while more mRNA genocide occurs daily. As an MD it is shocking how much malpractice is occurring over the deadly mRNA vaccine. It has no track record but is being forced on an unsuspecting public. WMD in Iraq = mRNA vaccine is safe= both are outright lies. I am pro vaccine but NOT this mRNA vaccine.

I keep hearing this repeated BUT NO PROOF….same old propaganda. I’ve checked WTO database for IP theft and there is no proof. A small business copying a screw driver does not count.

“We don’t want autocratic governments like China, writing the rules of the road. We together with our allies, who care about privacy, freedom, individual rights, individual protection, we need to write the rules of the road,”

More of the same lies being repeated as truth. Refuse Vax no job, Refuse vax no school, Refuse vax no restaurants or entertainment. Sure, you have a right to refuse BUT you cannot participate in society….Freedom….you got to be dreaming to believe that.

I go to the hardware store to buy stuff, look it up on Aliexpress.com and it’s 80% cheaper! And the hardware store is selling the same thing, just shows how greedy business’ are here, they are hopelessly out gunned. If the public here weren’t soooo stupid they’d all be out of business and don’t forget who drove those Companies over seas. The Government is wrecking this Country and trying to blame China, don’t buy that swamp land.

USSA aka the anglozionazi empire of filth, mad raving psychokiller that we all love to hate, is not long for this world. Soon the civil war reloaded will kick in as the cadaver in chief goes full zombie with his covaids collap$e madness and then the real fun begins. Meanwhile keep on squirting the tax cattle and their kids with all that covaids filth. The rest of the planet loves it and is munching the popcorn. But one minor detail…do these thugs in Washing town imagine that China will continue to fund their serial judaic wars of “expansion” such as the last disaster with the Talibanners?

USSA is disease…unfortunately humanity, this side of the grave, cannot live in paradise and hence the poisonous vermin in the Washing town sewer spreading contagion and sickness with everything it touches. The anglozionazi empire of filth is like virus or feces…if the earth didn’t have it..it would have had to invent it.

“America is most effective when we work with our allies,” Raimondo told CNBC’s Kayla Tausche in an exclusive interview. “If we really want to slow down China’s rate of innovation, we need to work with Europe.”” HaHaHaHaHaha!!! Well, well, well. What in the heck ever happened to the Free Market?What happened to Milton Friedman and his Neo Liberal economic model?? “Get the ‘gubmint’ out of the Economy.” they said. “Let the Free Market fix itself.” the Neo Liberals preach. LOL!! Well look who hates the Free Market now. Look who is demanding the Government intervene for them and slow down China’s Innovation capabilities!! Milton Friedman and his Neo Con minions are frauds. The REAL Neo Con Agenda has always been about Class Warfare. Stealing from the taxpayers to enrich the Super Rich. I say throw US based Corporations out onto the streets and if they can’t compete in the Real World, the real Free Market then they should go out of business.
