      One of the major questions, perhaps the single most important question, of post-Cold War international relations is whether China contemplates a recreation of the old Sino-centric world in East Asia or whether it is willing to participate in international relations in accordance with concepts the Europeans first invented to govern their own relations. However, some local veterans of the China trade worry that moves afoot in Congress to punish China for its human rights deficiencies could end up punishing businesses here instead. Topping the list of Florida exports to China is chemicals, including fertilizers. Chinese hegemonic claims may also be intended to forestall and balance Japanese hegemonism, which Japan's status as the world's richest big nation in per capita terms makes increasingly probable. This current ambivalence among countries and policymakers is nothing new. They could vote to strip China of its MFN status and the president would have to veto the legislation and face an override a vote, a risky thing for a Democratic president to do to a Democratically-controlled his first year in office.

      Once both sides agreed to the quid pro quo, the agreements would be brought back to the United States and the Mexican governments for approval and passage into law. But this is not the only way to use history to evaluate these counterfactual strategies. At the end of a round, signatory countries do not end up with the same tariff rates. Note that countries are always free to lower trade barriers unilaterally if they wish without violating the agreements. Moreover, such American sermonizing is quickly undercut by other groups who deplore Chinese abortions and the one-child policy. This maximum rate is called a tariff binding, or a bound tariff rate.

      China has a legal claim to Taiwan that is older than the United States's existence as a nation. I do not wish to impose my truth, nor do I wish you to impose yours on me. At the same time, one could argue that the technology sanctions ultimately persuaded China that it would need to focus on developing its own indigenous capability, thus becoming a more formidable competitor in the long run. What is clear is that an attempt to do so would be extremely costly to the mainland. Note that countries are always free to lower trade barriers unilaterally if they wish without violating the agreements. These include forced technology transfers, export of goods made with prison labor, refusal to honor agreements concerning piracy of products such as compact discs and computer software, dumping, trade barriers, extensive subsidies to state industries, and, as Greg Mastel of the Economic Strategy Institute puts it, "some merger of the teachings of Chairman Mao with the economic experience of Japan.
