lets not forget that China is about as dependent on us as we are on them!!
Who do you think buys Chinese products? Where do you think their exports go?
actual Chinese consumerism is extremely low, especially because the country’s wealth is concentrated in several powerful hands — there isn’t as much of a domestic market.
Chinese companies also have a very difficult time marketing themselves in the way that US ones do. They can’t brand themselves like US companies, and they are not nearly as innovative. This lack of creativity will undoubtedly catch up with Chinese economic growth.
so it is in China’s best interest to remain on good terms throughout the UN, and especially with the united states. Cyber warfare will only get them so far. Internal pressure from citizens will also increase the likelihood of greater Chinese cooperation in the future.
secrecy, faulty products, oppression, and lack of innovation and personal business connections will lead to either downfall, or cooperation.
