The United States became the initiators of the economic war against China. The Tsargrad edition writes about this, referring to the authors of the Czech newspaper Lidovky.
According to Johns Hopkins University professor Gal Brands, the construction of the global economy began after the Cold War. Western countries promoted the idea that economic benefits are more important than national interests, but China and Russia opposed. Observers note that now the Russian Federation and China are significant players in the global economy, and the West is highly dependent on them.
Against the backdrop of recent events, Washington unleashed an economic war against Beijing. According to US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, this is “friendly support”, which implies the transfer of production facilities to “countries more friendly to the United States.” The head of the White House, Joe Biden, even visited Japan to conclude an agreement to work together to create innovative systems that will “throw China out of the game,” the source reports.
