It’s time Biden ended Trump’s trade war with China

Earlier this month, I participated in the Harvard Asia Conference panel on US-China commercial relations. My co-panellists were Mr Steve Orlins, president of the National Committee on United States-China Relations, and Harvard professors Graham Allison and William Kirby. Remarkably, there was a strong consensus among us that former president Donald Trump’s trade war against China hadn’t helped American workers or consumers. Nor had it reduced the trade deficit. Or helped the US economy. In short, the trade war had completely failed.

If it has failed, why has the Biden administration not reversed it?

One answer, provided by a senior Biden administration official, is that the US was keeping the trade sanctions and tariffs in place to use as leverage with China. A wise co-panellist of mine commented that this was akin to saying to China: “If you don’t heed my demands, I will shoot myself in the foot again.”

Since this column is going to be slightly critical of the Biden administration, it is vital to emphasise here that most of the world, including our own Asean region, cheered when Mr Joe Biden defeated Mr Trump. We want Mr Biden to succeed, not fail.

Yet, as my wise guru Tommy Koh says, individuals and organisations fail when they have only uncritical lovers or unloving critics. This column is written from the perspective of a critical lover. The main argument of this essay is that it is not in the enlightened self-interest of the US to persist with Mr Trump’s trade war.

So why is the Biden administration persisting? Another wise soul, Dr Ian Bremmer, a well-known political commentator, has provided the answer. He said that it would be “horrible domestic politics” for Mr Biden to declare that Mr Trump was wrong on China. In short, domestic political considerations trump (pardon the pun) sensible trade policies.

Most Americans would agree with Dr Bremmer that Mr Biden cannot afford to be seen to be soft on China. Yet, most Americans also believe that the US does represent, at the end of the day, a strong embodiment of the values and principles of the Western Enlightenment.

Probably the single biggest value that the Western Enlightenment has taught us is that reason must be relied on over emotion or political and religious prejudices in making decisions on what is good for society. It is this triumph of Western reasoning that provided the foundations for Western economic theory, including Ricardo’s law of comparative advantage.

As I emphasised at the Harvard Asia Conference, it was the great American universities, like Harvard, which taught Asian leaders and thinkers that trade is a positive-sum game. Indeed, as Mr Lee Kuan Yew said in his seminal address to the joint session of Congress in 1985, “never in its history has the peoples of the world enjoyed such high standards of living. For 40 years, the maintenance of political boundaries was made possible because thrusting, and usually aggressive, peoples have been able to fulfil their drive to better their lot through trade”.

Enlightened self-interest

Hence, if the Biden administration wanted to formulate its trade and economic policies towards China, on the basis of the enlightened self-interest of American workers and consumers – and indeed give a sharp boost to the American economy, which would, in turn, help Mr Biden in the 2022 mid-term elections – it should immediately and unconditionally lift all self-defeating trade sanctions and tariffs on China.

However, irrational domestic political prejudices will block this rational course of action.

So what should the friends and allies of the US do in these circumstances?

There are two choices. The first option is to declare that we are helpless and we cannot move the needle on American domestic policies.

The second option is to help the Biden administration out by providing political cover for it to change course on trade policies towards China. The second option is wiser.

Two countries can play a critical role here: Japan and Australia.

Why these two? Both have the closest security relations with the US. Both also have the most to lose if US policies fail in the region and the US becomes decoupled economically from East Asia.

The latter possibility is real. With the US withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the implementation of both the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership and the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership, a thriving economic ecosystem, involving all of East Asia, will emerge in the region, with less and less US presence; this will be a fatal setback for the long-term security interests of both Japan and Australia, the two countries that are the most dependent on the US to provide their long-term security.

They have the most to lose if the US footprint in the region diminishes. And the most to gain if this footprint increases.

Why economic power matters

And here’s the critical point. The most important US footprint in the region is not the military one. It’s economic. The long-term game in East Asia isn’t about aircraft carriers or stealth bombers. It will not be a military war that determines the winner of the US-China geopolitical contest, as I document in Has China Won?; it will be the scale and scope of the trade and economic policies in the region.

Anyone who doubts this should do a case study of the relative influence of the US and China in South-east Asia.

As recently as 2000, US influence was much greater. Why? The US economy, in nominal market terms, was eight times larger than China’s. Total US trade with the Asean countries in 2000 was larger than China’s (US$134 billion versus US$41 billion).

By last year, China’s influence in South-east Asia had become greater. Why? First, the US economy was only 1.6 times larger than China’s. Second, China’s trade with Asean members had become larger (US$508 billion versus US$295 billion). All this happened because, while the US spent US$6 trillion fighting unnecessary wars in the Middle East, China signed a free trade agreement with Asean in 2001.

In short, the critical strategic mistake that the US made was to focus on the military dimensions while China stayed focused on the economic dimensions.

Just as US influence in South-east Asia has diminished because it ignored the economic dimension, it could also similarly diminish in East Asia.

Since Australia, Japan and other friends and allies of the US have a lot to lose if American influence in the region diminishes, they should call on the US, as the Harvard professors did, to stop its self-destructive trade war with China and resume “normal” (not friendly) trade relations with China.

Paradoxically, the best way to anchor a long-term US presence is to see growing trade with all major economies in the region, including China.

Just as an economic decoupling between the US and China will lead to a decoupling between the US and East Asia (as China is hugely integrated with East Asia), an economic coupling between the US and China could lead to a stronger coupling between the US and East Asia.

Such an economic coupling would be the best long-term guarantee of a strong and permanent US presence in East Asia, enhancing the security of Japan and Australia.

Since Australia is trying hard now to renormalise its relations with China (which have been frozen for several years), an easy step that Canberra could take is to publicly call on Mr Biden to completely stop Mr Trump’s trade war with China. Indeed, if Mr Biden did this, it would help American workers and consumers (as Mr Biden himself said in the US presidential election campaign in 2019).

At the same time, such a public call would send a positive signal from Australia to Beijing.

In short, as I emphasised at the Harvard conference, if the US was a rational geopolitical actor and followed its own enlightened self-interest, it would completely reverse Mr Trump’s trade policies towards China.

To achieve this goal, all friends and allies of the US should send a consistent message to Washington: Please increase your economic presence in East Asia by stopping this trade war with China. Please don’t shoot yourself in the foot.

  • Australia misunderstood:

    “Since Australia is trying hard now to renormalise its relations with China.”

    Are you sure? Australia is trying its best to antagonize China, and at the same time pretend to be a victim. Its recent actions over the last few weeks say it is looking for a bigger fight.

    Not possible to change God’s plan to destroy the American domination of the world. God did not send in Trump and now Biden to be the Presidents of USA for nothing. They are what USA needs at this critical time, to guarantee their demise.

    Trump and Biden would greatly contributed to the downfall of the American Empire in their fumbling ways at a faster speed, unstoppable. These two buffoons are legendary and would go down in the history of the USA as the architects of the Fall of the American Empire.

    Covid19 would help to complete the rest of the plan. We bystanders, like Kishore Mahbubani, can see it clearly what is happening to America. The Americans can’t. Even if they could, they are tying their own hands not to do the right thing.

    Btw,is *FREE* TRADE ,in its current form,beneficial to all countries in REALITY?
    FREE TRADE GIVES RISE TO TRADE SURPLUSES AND TRADE DEFICITS,we all know !
    And,WHY precisely?

    Do countries with never-ending TRADE DEFICITS see FREE TRADE as an advantage?

    Many populous countries compete on CHEAP LABOUR and ,being communist,CHINA CAN ACTUALLY *MANAGE* ITS COSTS OF PRODUCTION much more than,say,a significant and substantial trading partner like USA,ya?

    How can WTO N ILO ensures fairer wages so that trading partners can compete more equitably?

    In the last 30 years,CHINA has LABOUR COST ADVANTAGE vis-a-vis its TRADING PARTNERS.
    And,labour cost is a big impact on COST OF PRODUCTION.
    Other factors include *LAND* and govt subsidies which China has been using to its great advantage.

    It is not an EASY STRAIGHT-FORWARD argument like what Kiss-horse propounds to end TRADE WAR?

    WHO IS THE REAL *agressor*?

    In any case,it was GREEDY AMERICANS WHO STARTED THE BALL ROLLING BY TAKING ADVANTAGE OF CHEAP LABOUR IN THE EARLY STAGES OF CHINA’S OPENING UP,was it not?
    Recall LEVIS MANUFACTURED IN CHINA’S SWEAT-SHOPS N SOLD IN US$?

  • BK:

    What is comparative advantage in its simplest form? It means even if US can make all things cheaper trade will occur because it will manufacture what it does best; opportunity cost.

    But recent events highlight why comparative advantage as a basis of globalization is philosophically less viable.

    In TRE we already had many discussions of Brexit, Trump and the rise of the right wings in EU. This has not ceased, just less published because of the pandemic. It is about how the low wage workers had suffered most in globalization. And how elites had taken over the agenda of economics, even in Singapore. So, the politics of economics had replaced comparative advantage to one of on-shoring.

    And even if you want comparative advantage, US had preferred that to come from Vietnam and Taiwan etc.

    Secondly, the pandemic has shown why critical supplies of masks, gloves, medical devices need to be manufactured locally whatever the comparative advantage, as the supply chain chokes. And as our planet enters a phase of disruptive weather patterns, food supply will be crucial.

    And as I have often quoted, the consumers will become prosumers (Alvin Toffler). There are many mini trends showing that ppl want to produce their own things such as food. And if u think about that, how for example, US an agriculture country before WW2 became the hegemon of manufacturing then as debtor country that controls the global finance as manufacturing passed to China, u must ask, as ppl go back to produce food, is the philosophy of economic advantage/comparative advantage usurped by a philosophy of sustainability?

    I fear Kishore is using outdated contexts and ideas for a very worthy cause, romantically nostalgic but not very helpful.

    And, where is the balance? How China thru its policy restricted US corporations and others from entering its markets, thereby contributing to the friction.

  • Rejoinder to Mr Mahbubani:

    It’s not as straightforward a political-economic appraisal as this. There are incongruous ideological differences between the party chauvinism of the Chinese Communist Party, and the natural aristocracy of liberal democracy – not only of developed Western countries but of progressive Japan and South Korea as well.
    If anything, the Confucian-cultured Republic of Taiwan should be highlighted as the Chinese peoples’ aspirations to break away from their dynastic historical baggage. So professed the great Dr. Sun Yat Sen, who is hailed as the great emancipator of the Chinese people on both sides of the Taiwan Strait.

    “If the idea of revolution is to win out, it must be through political enlightenment. It is useless to try to impose it by force of arms … Of the people, by the people, for the people …. It is only after mature deliberation and thorough preparation that I have decided upon the Program of Revolution and defined the procedure of the revolution in three stages: The first is the period of military government; the second, the period of political tutelage; and the third, the period of constitutional government.”

    * Dr. Sun Yat Sen *

    We last heard that the chairmanship of the CCP is for a lifetime. We hope to be corrected on this modern conundrum…..

The American democracy reduced half of the American population from middle class to poverty, from a creditor nation to a debtor nation. Now everyday trying to con itself that it would make America great again when the CCP has made China Great Again.

  • Pap has the mandate:

    What Trump said is correct, he is the president of America and not the world. His first priority is the interest of the common people of America and not the interest of big business or big tech or Hollywood or the rich democrats. Trump is not perfect and has his flaws but you can see that he is working to bring back businesses to America so that unemployment will come down. Now Trump has left office, Biden has lost the respect of the world, Kowtow to the Chinese and giving money away and printing more money (irony and sic). Free Trade is a big lie and now China is dominating the South China Sea and even SG PAP government has nothing to do with the South China Sea was complaining, SG has no stake in the South China Sea. THE SG PAP Government does not trust China, yet the SG PAP Government wanted the Chinese market and money. Everyone knows that Singapore PAP Government is a double-headed s*ake or a double agent so SG PAP Government, let’s stop being an “Angel” when you are clearly not.

    America doesn’t need to worry about China; it needs to be worry about itself and never ever think or utter the dreaded “we’re #1 !” empty slogan.

    The main problem is, Americans are convinced of a paradox: the average American believes a)they can buy cheap electronics like a 50” LCD TV which costs $400, and b)they can have a robust American manufacturing sector which provides high paying jobs with benefits.

    Obviously, both cannot be true. High wages are paid by a company which generates revenues commensurate to support them. Even most of America’s car companies simply buy components manufactured in Taiwan, China, Japan, Vietnam, the Philippines and South America and just assemble them in the US.

    Cheap goods cannot sustain high paying American jobs with benefits and worker rights. It’s just not mathematically possible. This means, other countries with low wages will continue to exploit the US consumer market.

    If the United States wants its power back, then it need to convince Americans that paying more for consumer goods is a good thing. And companies in US need to pay wages which allow the consumer to purchase more expensive products.

    The United States needs to learn that a country with 4% of the world’s population does not deserve to “rule the world” forever. The US also needs to learn that its model of economic and political governance do not work everywhere and, indeed, that it may be harmful trying to impose those models on other places.Indeed, given the many obvious and considerable failings of the American model of democracy,

    Americans need to carry themselves with a lot more humility. The US with its’ allies like UK, Australia is stirring up a completely unnecessary Cold War through its aggressive actions.

    Biden meanwhile has but four years to alter the course, which is insufficient time to implement any real long-term differences– especially when it would mean large new public investments by the US in education and training, infrastructure, “industrial policy” subventions of key economic sectors, R&D support, and national defense. The outlook for America is not good.

    KM has only probably climbed Bukit Timah or Mount Faber “hill. Doesn’t he know that climbing up the hill (globalisation) is a lot easier than climbing down (deglobalisation) the hill.

    Leaving aside ideological difference between China and US, cheap Chinese manufacturing has been exporting deflation (lower price for consumers) to the world FOR DECADES. Now Trump-Biden drive to manufacture, uncompetitively against China, will only export inflation (more expensive goods) to the world.

    Not sure if this “beggar thy neighbour” economics will favor US or China or the rest of the world. BUT I AM CERTAIN in economic terms at least, it is GOING TO BE DISRUPTIVE TO SUPPLY CHAIN on top of that same damage done to global economies now by Covid-19 of raw materials, intermediate industrial parts (semi-conductor is good example to automotive industry) and more expensive food (can’t find workers for harvesting and shipment of fresh fruits & foods)

    Me thinks the pandemics has disrupted Trump-Biden deglobalisation agenda slowing global growth this decade. It DOESN’T NEED FURTHER AGGRAVATION OF TRADE WAR WITH CHINA and deglobalisation disruption.

    Somewhere and somehow, US will have to find a accommodation reach with China and rework the globalisation agenda.

    Any further aggravation of de-globalisation will have major impact on developing economies (slowing its growth) supplying natural resources and energy to the world and capacity to absorb (the more expensive) US-made goods.

    The collateral damage to the world is going to be far bigger than the mutual trade interest of either or both US or China.

    AND YES CLIMBING DOWN FROM THE MOUNTAIN IS HARDER AND MORE DANGEROUS OF FATAL FALL THAN CLIMBING UP.

    It is a known fact the CCP silenced their own Doctors e.g. Dr. Li Wenliang trying to warn about the spread of the CCP in the beginning stage. Dr. Li died a painful death – did the CCP care?
    We all know from history human lives are cheap to the CCP i.e. the great leap backwards – famine where millions died. This virus could be used to solve their aging population problem.

    As for the US. Human Lives are also cheap. With their senseless guns shootings. Selling weapons to the world to make millions/billions etc.

    It’s very irresponsible to spread this type of fake news, endangering all Asians in western countries.

    Fuck you.

    dave:
    Who is this silly fucker called Dr. Chan? Is he trying to stir anti Chinese sentiment for the whites to find more excuses to beat and kill Chinese and Asians?

    Identify yourself. Who are you?

    Moderator, please remove his dangerous comment.

    Before i forget, dear @ Dr Chan, no apologies is needed if you are sincere and based on your independent assessment.

    While we are all trying to obtain the clear picture… truth and fake are within one another.
