    What could go wrong?
    The US sending their backdoor-opened tech equipment to China?

    It will be niche products that the US needs and China dominates supply and are not easily transferable such as rare earth metals or scrap imports. Foreign owned branded products made in China.

    Understandable, considering how close our ties are with the US.
    But risky given how important China is as a buyer of Aussie goods/resources.

    We'll see, the world needs a bit of a hard reset environmentally/agriculturally/geologically speaking, so we'll just have to manage, won't we?

    If it slows down the over use of petro-chemical tat and natural resource waste, then, so be it.

    I personally think its time for China to just own the fact that the US depends on it as much as they do the other way around.

    If the other party is holding the cards - take them away. Add a 25% export charge on ALL exports to the US. If the US wants to add another 25%, that's their problem.

    In the mean time, let the Chinese consumers import freely - whatever they want and need. Let them export freely and cheaply to other countries.

    While I agree both countries need each other, this does seem like cutting off the nose to spite the face.

    Put me in charge and I'll show you how it's done.
