ABSTRACT
The article analyzes the U.S. government's policy regarding trade with China in 2008. China's economy has more than doubled in the past decade, leaving the U.S. with a current trade deficit of roughly $250 billion. U.S. Congress has proposed protectionist legislation asking for a revaluation of the Chinese yuan upwards of 20 percent. The author feels such a move would actually damage the U.S. and proposes such reforms as the restructuring of U.S. corporate and banking interests, tax reform, and large-scale plans to encourage U.S. domestic spending. The cooperation of American and Chinese corporations is discussed.
