"How we can we criticize China for its currency manipulation when we manipulate agricultural product prices with our farm subsidies? We are just so hypocritical it's disgusting. In addition, our farm subsidies hurt some of the world's poorest countries."
-- Ron, Nevada
"The U.S. is at a turning point in its economic history. Either we need to face down China, start paying down our debts to them, or China will gain the upper hand and we will be reduced to a role akin to Europe's secondary economic status to the U.S. The time to act is now."
-- Kevin R., Wisconsin
"We should quit buying products made in China and only buy American-made goods. Oops, my mistake, we don't make anything here these days."
-- Steve M., Pennsylvania
"China has no incentives in playing fair, and they are not going to. American businesses need to be more price competitive, but the key is to keep our quality standards and not deteriorate what "Made in America" stands for. American products are not cheap, compared with the competition from the Far East, what we sell is image and quality assurance."
-- Ariel B., Oklahoma
"The U.S. is not going to start improving its situation with China until it snaps out of its mindset that China is some kind of nefarious enemy that must be countered."
-- Chris.B., California
"All imports from China should be taxed to equalize the tremendous wage differences between them and the USA. This would discourage 'outsourcing' all our manufacturing and protect American jobs."
-- Ted S., California
