    I miss the Obama/Biden policies of ignoring China’s abuses, theft of technology, theft of manufacturing jobs, destruction of the environment.

    Can’t wait for those policies to be re-enacted when Hunter gets a cool $100 million for being, you know, related to the Big Dog.

    Finally we have a President who is doing something about China and not tolerating their never ending crimes against America. Furthermore the Trump administration is bringing back the manufacturing of drugs back here as to put an ends to China’s threats to our drug. This is a hostile country, not so much the people who make up the country, but their leadership and the communist party. Who would treat their best customer like trash? Then they send people here to infiltrate our colleges. Please do all you can to cut of buying from China. By the way, please do not take this out on Asian-Americans, they have nothing to do with what is going on in China and as most people know (except for Joe Biden), not all Asians are from China.

      Totally hear you on not buying Chinese manufactured items. So, no more buying any Tramp products. MAGA hats, ties…all made in China.

      One thing to say about Joe. He sure called the fact Tramp is going to try and delay the election. Spot on, Joe! Are you some sort of prophet?

        You are correct. There are a lot of things made in China, we won’t be able to stop everything right away. This is because even American brands make things in in China. We need to legislate to make manufacturing in China either very expensive or illegal. We need to make as much as we can over here and then contract out the rest with non-communist countries who we are friendly with. I know some don’t like what I am saying because they support communism and support the Democrat party who has an ultimate goal of bringing communism to America. I am not here to please you, I am here to do what is right for the country.

          There is no such thing as the Democrat Party, do you mean the Democratic Party? I don’t see anything communistic about their platform. Can you please show me where they have communism in it? I agree, we need to have manufacturing here. Too bad Reaganism totally destroyed and eliminated those jobs.

    Why shouldn’t ALL research for a COVID-19 vaccine be transparent and public? Is election year politics really that much more important than trying to save the lives of some fellow men?

      Since you’re unable to trace the impacts of stealing research through the economic system, I’ll give you a few clues.

      Stealing trade secrets allows the thieves to under-price the market, thus forcing the (e.g. pharma) developers to price their product HIGHER to recoup their research costs ON LOWER SALES COUNT VOLUME, thus yielding a perpetual loss or below-risk-level rates of return. Incurring losses and/ or below risk level returns will result in drops in stock prices, thus exodus of needed capital (from pharma cos.) to other investments. That results in the destruction of a capitalist economic system (see K. Marx) and decline of incentives to develop drugs and other products that extend and enrich our lives.

      It should now be obvious why the Red Commies are stealing research from The West.

        ‘perpetual loss’ should be ‘perpetual loss of market share or compete at’. Bear culpa.

      Why did you bring ‘election year politics’ into the discussion?
      Answer: Straw Man Argument. Diversion for political purposes from an economic topic.

      Transparency of the pharma research at Moderna or other pharma labs would in no way improve the chance it finds a vaccine any easier or quicker. None.
