    Counterfeit electronics are also a plague on Amazon as well.
    I knew it. I just wanted to hear it from an American. Thank you.

The way I see it, you are trying to pass off as a CCP mouthpiece and losing out on whatever reputation you have left here. Don't ever, for a moment think I don't understand trade wars or little bit of economics. I am putting you in my ignore list. Have a good day if you can.
    Iíve never met, nor even heard of ďAmericans (?) who support Chinese maurading, IPR theft, faníboism [whatever that is].Ē Please cite sources, and stop the sly insults. It is beneath the standards of WAB.

    There is a world of difference between the unprecidented (as far as we know) interference in the US 2016 election and its aftermath, and China being the fourth or fifth Asian economy to rip off US IPR. To equate the two is to diminish the historic severity of what the Putin-Trump Alliance has achieved. To suggest that these companies were caught flat-footed is to reveal a deep ignorance about Western business interaction with China.

    Neutralizing US global respect, commitment to allies, support for international regulatory institutions and domestic confidence cannot, by any stretch of the imagination, be on the same level as 35 years of China doing what other North-East Asian economies did for over 50 years.

    Accusing me of being a CCP mouthpiece because you only understand economics a little bit is well below par for Wabbit behavior. Accusing me of trolling because you donít know China as well as I do is inappropriate.

    I appreciate differences of opinion, but when it comes to doing business in Asia, and the economics of the region, I donít find much in the way of excellent knowledge and long experience on this board. At least have the grace to acknowledge that this is my entire careerís experience youíre dismissing off-hand and without shred of valid counter point.

    None of your posts are upto the point, why? Never ever talked directly to the point? I didn't ask you which Asian economies ripped off US IPR before China, I was talking about China. You bring in a lot of bullshit together, just to confuse posters. Why do you always try to take the flow of the thread away from China to Taiwan, Skorea, Japan? You do that everytime, why? You think I am a newbie here to fall for your deflection?

    You are all against Russia and Trump, but when it comes to China you're the first line of defense here at WAB. Then you squirm and shout that you're an economist, and that this is your life's work, and you ought to be repected - well the bad news is I have never heard of you before (and I know quite a few economists), and the worst news is it doesn't matter. Why didn't you quote Astralis when he commented on China's wholesale technology theft? You think people are stupid in here? Take your jabberwocky somewhere where you think you'd be noticed or given respect. In here, people don't beg for respect again and again, they earn it. And if you think I don't understand the nature and direction of your posts, I very well know.

    So, PLEASE STOP QUOTING ME. I am done with you.
