Throughout this course, many discussion opportunities come up where you will need to respond to other people’s opinions and comments.

Initial posts should be approximately 100 words in length. Your three posts should be composed of your own initial response to the question and two additional responses to your classmates and/or instructor. Any external sources used should be cited and included in a reference list at the bottom of your response. Use APA formatting guidelines.

Discussion Topic: China and Mercantilism

Trade and government policies are a serious matter when considering doing business abroad. In this discussion, you will examine China’s economic policy and consider the implications for trading partners. Before preparing your response, review the information regarding mercantilism in Chapter 6 of your course text, and read the article entitled “China’s global energy diplomacy: Behavior normalization through economic interdependence or resource neo-mercantilism and power politics?” (Gueldry & Liang, 2016) from the PG Library. Once you launch the link, click on “PDF Full Text” on the left to open the article.

After considering these two different scenarios, discuss the following:

Is China pursuing a neo-mercantilist economic policy? Explain your position.
Based on your answer to the first question, what action, if any, should the United States and other trading partners of China take to ensure an equitable trading relationship?
To support your assertions, utilize at least one academically credible research source in your response, both citing it in-text and listing it as a reference at the end of your post.
