Hollowing Out Your Competitor's Market By Building One Of Your Own....

Looking long term (way past any and all Trump administrations), this move provides a platform for the Chinese to develop THEIR OWN:

- chip industry

- OS industry

- application software industry

.....in addition to their obvious current strenth in network components. As the article points out, this could REDUCE the turnover of American suppliers by $150 billion.

.....but in the long term, it will also hollow out Western manufacturing, Western universities....and the Western technical knowledge base.

In a recent TV program, a Chinese government person said that since China has four times the population of the USA, there is no reason why Chinese GDP should not be four times that of the USA.

Thank you Mr. Trump for helping this Chinese policy choice get implemented sooner rather than later!!!!!
