Can the US afford to decouple from China?
Editor's note: The recent moves by the US administration against Chinese tech companies, including Huawei, TikTok and WeChat, on the pretext of "national security", raised the possibility that the US is trying to force Chinese companies out of the US market to achieve a decoupling with China. But is it possible for the US to decouple from China? Readers share their opinions.
The cooperation between China and the US is mutually beneficial, rather than what Trump always claims that China is taking advantage of the US and stealing US jobs. China has supplied high quality and cheap products to the US, driving down the US inflation rate effectively, and more importantly, supporting the high living standard for average American. Once the US decouples from China, all those good things will go with ash and wind.
