Department of Justice targeting ethnic Chinese in economic espionage cases? If so, is such targeting justified, or does it represent yet another noxious instance of American authorities using racial or ethnic profiling? Is the government targeting Chinese people at all, or are ethnic Chinese just more likely to be caught up in economic espionage?

Production Editor Needed

By Anthony James 

Although it is one of the world’s largest producers of food, China is in a pickle: the country is running out of farmland. That's pretty surprising for a country that feeds close to 20 percent of the world’s population and employs more than 300 million farmers. However, with rapid industrialization, mass migrations of farmers to the cities, and the growing demand for food by its middle class, how is China going to get more food?

China’s foreign exchange policy and capital controls have been highly controversial
over the last decade. Whether the discussion centers on the apparent undervaluation of
the Renminbi (RMB) or the stringent control of currency flowing in and out of China, it
seems quite certain that these issues will continue to receive considerable attention in the
foreseeable future.

New research report calls for a shift of China’s development and growth model

BEIJING February 27, 2012 - China should complete its transition to a market economy -- through enterprise, land, labor, and financial sector reforms -- strengthen its private sector, open its markets to greater competition and innovation, and ensure equality of opportunity to help achieve its goal of a new structure for economic growth.

Passage will hurt the interests of both countries, Chinese officials say

BEIJING - China's government will not sit by and will retaliate in kind against the United States if a measure targeting the yuan becomes law, said the Ministry of Commerce on Monday.

China's sustained trade surplus has produced concern in many quarters recently and has triggered calls from some countries, notably the [United States], pressing China to revalue its currency and to rein in policies supportive of its domestic industries. However, analysis shows that China's trade surplus, which has kept increasing for about 20 years, is the result of China's reform and opening-up drive and of introducing preferential policies to attract investment: It has little to do with the RMB exchange rate.

Minnesota exports, including agricultural, mining and manufactured products, grew almost 12 percent to US$5.3 billion in the second quarter of 2011 – a record quarterly high. The national export growth rate was 18 percent. Vermont was the only state with decreased exports during this period.
