  • So... When China bans the USA from selling in their market, it's okay, but when we ban China from selling here, we're in the wrong? Double Standards much? How about China quits being a terrible country, then we can start accepting some of their companies. This was an incredibly biased video by the verge. You won't be getting anymore views from me. Good luck with your anti-American and Pro-China agenda, but I won't be supporting it.

  • A big issue is, with the government not allowing them to grow an online market with sites that the rest of the world uses. China will not grow unless they can successfully connect with the rest of the world and remove some of the ideas that are forced upon them from the government. Racism being a big one in China. I am not saying all are, but it is a big issue in China.

    • @paidninja China does have big state industries that play a big role in the country. To say it is a state capitalism really it isn’t wrong. In addition, there are private businesses and non-government industries that most may not be subsidized or being supported by the government. For example in the US most big corporate entities have been subsidized by the federal government. For example, bailing out and following federal regulations from the major industries or corporate entities such as GM, Walmart, farming industries, JB Morgan chase, Comerica incorporated, American Express, and etc. Which is the large practice of economic regulation, that fell off the definition of free market capitalism.

That violated Google policy set in 2015, and TikTok knew it, but did this anyway. But Jerry Yang here is whining about unfairness. It's not merely stigma if your company is actually doing things behind users backs.

  • If China would allow our companies to freely enter their market without boatloads of scrutiny and red tape then we’d be less suspicious of the products and motivations of their companies over here. I think that and concerns about quality and privacy are the main issues.

  • China has changed quite a lot over the years. Still, ignorance and stereotype thinking of the western people prevents them from acknowledging China is actually leading the innovation in many areas. Whenever something new comes out of China, the first thing western can think of is China must steal from somewhere. I find it's funny to say FB and Google are treating their customer's privacy with care. But it's ok simply because they are USA companies; it has nothing to do with their actual business practice.
