Paul Craig Roberts: China isn’t to blame for a weak US economy

On Tuesday President Obama meet with the future leader of China. Xi Jinping was welcomed at the White House where the two discussed several issues. Obama said that a strong relationship between the US and China was “vital,” but his actions have shown otherwise. In November of last year, President Obama made the announcement that the US will position 2,500 Marines in Australia, and in the past Obama has been outspoken towards China’s influence and has declared this is a top priority. So why is Obama being two-faced with China? Doctor Paul Craig Roberts, a former Reagan Administration official, joins us to look into the bipolar relationship with China.

@chadberry75 China has a handful compared to the USA or Russia.

Only 2,500 marines in the pacific? Thats it? Theres a big stink over that few? That wouldn't be remotely close to even being slightly near enough to intimidate China.

And obviously China isn't to blame for a weak US economy, only the fucking US government is to blame for that.

And Obama being two faced? Is that really ANY SURPRISE to anyone at this point? Hes been a two faced, lying, backstabbing piece of warmongering trash ever since he lied his way into office.

at 3:19 that's a girl in Vietnam.

those so-called marriage agencies in my Prison Island in Southeast Asia are bringing in such girls from Vietnam to marry desperate guys who can't find local girls to marry.

when a guy has chosen a willing Vietnam girl to marry, he's expecting to pay about $20,000 in agent's fee, marriage documentation fee, dowry to the girl's family, and wedding expenses.

@TheWhiteboy3431 A superpower with TONS of debts in one big Ponzi Scheme that had played confidence game (or con game) for more than 40 years. May you survive in one piece when the house of cards finally comes down.

@vincentyeo88 Buy golds and silvers, or invest in manufacturing or agriculture sector. Cash shall be worthless when the USD's 40 years of con game finally ends.

@jjjtomasivic American already lost their sovereign when their history book's hero Woodrow Wilson founded the Federal Reserves and IRS.

Let's give them a standing ovation, shall we?

@ltmikepowell

@vincentyeo88 AND, a second nationality/passport in case, I mean in case USD does gone down to the pit. Again, don't forget golds and silvers for your monetary protection. And since Forex itself is a decentralized system, perhaps you should consider a country with solid currency system. Like mine for example (sorry for the advertizement).

Roberts is blaming companies for wanting to make more money.

I wonder if blames fish for wanting to swim.

@healthhavencom-Well I agree with PCR, this is NOT China's fault. The US Corps outsourced jobs to Asia, so to exploit them out of pure greed, but it has all back-fired and rightly so! Only the US would twist and manipulate situations so to make them look like a hero or a victim. This country has not the integrity to be up front and honest..

@ieodksnw787- All countries have good and bad about them and the US is no exception. I think you will find the US Gvt are also now going to start monitoring Internet users more on who goes to what web sites such as You Tube and where people can find info about what's really going on much moreso than on the ms-news media. They could take RT etc., of the TV and Internet in a heartbeat too.and I'd bet they will soon enough – e.g. – I heard in the UK, the Gvt recently took PressTV off the air!

@ieodksnw787 Isn't that the same as the U.S education: Spending alot of money for tutoring and college fees except the U.S education is worse then China's.

@ieodksnw787 You're talking as if China is going down either way no matter what they do…I am very confused? Anyway, nah they are doing fine and will do so in the future.

@ieodksnw787 Ever heard of the C9 Leauge which is made of China's top university? No money or power could get you into unless you score the highest on the National College Entrance Exams. Many over there have to take exam to determine what their occupation in life is and no you can't show how much wealth you have or what your social status are. Many Chinese go oversea to take over jobs if they got out of one of the C9 League since it's easier for them..

@ieodksnw787 No, the Chinese society is based on equal rights. It uses tests to decide who gets what position.

With government's data of more than 8% of unemployment rate and more than 40 millions on food stamp? What a recovery you have there, sheep.
