Abstract

The paper provides a brief analysis of commercial relations between China and the US, both direct and via the so-called ‘Asian circuit’. Special emphasis is laid on how production systems in the US and Asia are interdependent. In the light of these relationships and those existing between China and Japan and China and the EU, it seems that a US-EU block, in the context of the present geostrategic and economic situation, is not only unworkable, but also incompatible with the political and economic strategies of China and the United States.
