Nu-i aşa că-i nasol să te umilească alţii şi pe tine?

Aflăm de pe Huffington Post:

"The Obama administration is delaying a report to Congress on currency policies amid calls from some lawmakers that it should cite China as a currency manipulator harmful to the U.S. economy.
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said Saturday that he will delay publication of the report, due April 15, because several high-level international meetings in the coming months will be a better way to advance the United States' position.

Still, Geithner said in a statement that China should adopt "a more market-oriented exchange rate" to balance the U.S. trade deficit with China, which totaled $226.8 billion last year – the largest imbalance with any country. U.S. manufacturers say China's yuan is undervalued by as much as 40 percent and is a big reason for the massive trade deficit.

A stronger yuan versus the dollar would make U.S. products less expensive in China, while making Chinese goods more expensive for American consumers."

Da. Urâtă situaţie. Nici măcar sovieticii, în cea mai bună perioadă a lor, nu v-au tras-o vreodată în maniera asta. Mai mult decât atât: Republicanii, campionii "unilateralismului", ai lui "lasă că rezolvăm noi singuri problema, cu revolverul!", au devenit brusc iubitori de organizaţii internaţionale cu funcţii de arbitraj: "Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, called on the administration to prepare an unfair trade case against China before the World Trade Organization. "Everyone knows China is manipulating the value of its currency to gain an unfair advantage in international trade," he said. "If we want the Chinese to take us seriously, we need to be willing to say so in public."

VĂ DORESC MULTE SUCCESURI!

Şi, totuşi, vă prefer în continuare pe voi ca superputere. Aşa, papagali cum sunteţi...
