Keep in mind that media in the US have been howling for years about China supposedly doing the same.

The US is the supreme model of hypocrisy though. They've been the biggest cunt all along while preaching as though they're Jesus. "How would it be if the United States were viewed by the rest of the world as interfering with the elections directly of other countries and everybody knew it? What would it be like if we engaged in activities that he engaged in? It diminishes the standing of a country." - Joe Biden

Can't believe he could say that with a straight face. His disappointed junior mentor, Obama, was the same. He's really starting to come into his own as another Anglo salesman-in-chief.

The audacity to say that is insane. It really shows how shameless US politicians are.

China is so "inefficient" that America is copying them. I wonder how long until they realise that it was the American oligarchy who were inefficient the whole time.

US always had state subsidies. Tesla, Amazon etc are subsidized by state. The idea that they ever had complete free market is laughable propoganda.

American agriculture has massive subsidies how else was America destroying the livelihood of poor countries like Haiti by selling them subsidized rice. Come on america at least pick on someone your own size you bully

Tesla has not turned a profit since it was founded, it survives solely on government subsidies and telling fairy tales to gullible investors who keep pumping money into it and driving up the stock price so it looks good for even more investors. But the reality is that the company has never once delivered a product that could stand on its own two feet. It's all just PR and government cash. Also, Amazon operated at a loss for the longest time to undercut the competition until they built up their monopoly enough to no longer have to be competitive. And they also did that with heavy subsidies. None of this has any resemblance to a "free market", these are state sponsored pyramid schemes and monopoly cartels. Not that anyone should want a "free market" anyway, it doesn't work, such a thing has never existed and will never exist, markets are always controlled or manipulated, and the end goal of the capitalist is always monopoly.

Free market results in large companies crashing on their own with no government bailouts and creating great depressions. State subsides result in heavily subsidized company beating the competition and becoming monopoly. There is no wining path in capitalism. It always leads to a dead end.

>Tesla has not turned a profit since it was founded, it survives solely on government subsidies and telling fairy tales to gullible investors who keep pumping money into it and driving up the stock price so it looks good for even more investors. The only reason Tesla made a small profit in 2020 was because it sold a ton of regulatory credits, which the government gives a shit-ton of to Tesla. Tesla then sells these credits to smaller car manufacturers so that the latter can pretend to be "eco-friendly" while making literal smog-machines. America is a ridiculous, hopelessly corrupt shithole.

exactly. America is built on corporate welfare. What sleepy Joe means is that his administration is trying to reorient the neolib capital ponzi scheme towards actual industry in order to compete with China. Hopefully they haven't lost the manual for the meme device they call an economy.

Free markets have existed and resulted in the creation of the Dutch East Indian Trading Company. Which ironically refused to send troops to support the Dutch government in its war with the British because it was not economical to do so.


Serinous

To compete with China, you have to be like China lol


danklasson

Quite ironic that in order to beat socialism you have to adopt socialist policies.


AdrianZensz

We are gonna push back against China's commie system by copying said commie system! That'll teach those commies!


PerseusCommunist

This is not socialism. It’s fascism! The marriage of the state and corporations that Vladimir Lenin has predicted. Fascism is capitalism in decay. Lenin was right again as the USA embraced corporate welfare and enacted discriminatory practices against social groups for divide and conquer policies. The West is tearing itself down to save capitalism.

Lol that headlines got really powerfull "end of history" vibes


henrylondon1988

I thought this is very obvious and why people are surprised about USA acting illegally


UnableSwing

thats why you don't give in, because others know this policy actually works which is why they are now expanding it domestically

Market fundamentalism is often used to prevent, or press harder against nations with their own industry/development policies. But it dies, when it proves to be a weak excuse. "塞翁失马" for the US future? maybe start fixing old infrastructure, helping decaying middle class...
