China imposes tariff on US car imports

Additional duties will be charged on larger-engined American cars with General Motors, Chrysler and BMW all affected

http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/2...us-car-imports

Georges Dieng, a Paris-based analyst with Natixis Securities, said the levies had been set to "inflict pain on the Americans, above all".

Yep. The Germans only got a 2% tariff, while the US got 15. China seems to be pissed at us. I don't think this is really about the Chinese auto industry (what Chinese auto industry?).

Why are they pissed? We've been pretty much ass kissing in most of the latest trade deals.

Are they just kicking us because they can? Hmm.... I'm missing something.

Chinese are competent, have you heard the latest article with their automobile recall policy? China is getting tougher on its automakers by imposing stiffer penalties for those that neglect issuing safety recalls. Analysts believe the move will result in better automobiles coming from China.

This, coming from a land that can't make a decent pencil.
