The trade case, filed at the Commerce Department, seeks tariffs of more than 100 percent of the wholesale price of solar panels from China, which shipped $1.6 billion of the panels to the United States in the first eight months of this year.

Meanwhile, the amount China doesn't give a shit cannot be measured.

and what can be done about this? USA and China are not playing by the same rules. First of all, China's leadership is not hampered by a paralyzed political system that is more concerned with their own blind ambitions instead of working for the good of all of USA.

Next, not all the corporations in USA have USA in their best interests also.

Taking the cynical view, half or more of what we buy in WalMart is made in China. We like it cheap, so what is wrong with half price solar panels? Isn't that better than full price solar panels? The Chinese are subsidizing us (never mind what they will do in a few years when we can't make the things anymore, like remember when we decided to let all manufacture of TVs and more go to Japan and then elsewhere?)

The US doesn't function as a nation anymore, it still thinks the motto is "Go west", in spades.

(make sure this is noticed ////)

Until Chinese people have freedom from their oppressive authoritarian system, there will be no such thing as a level playing field.
