China-U.S. trade issues by Wayne M Morrison ( Book )
61 editions published between 1991 and 2008 in English and held by 80 libraries worldwide
U.S.-China economic ties have expanded substantially over the past several years. Total U.S.-China trade rose from $5 billion in 1980 to $343 billion in 2006. China is now the 2nd largest U.S. trading partner, its second-largest source of U.S. imports, and its fourth-largest export market. With a huge population and a rapidly expanding economy, China is a potentially huge market for U.S. exporters. However, economic relations have become strained over a number of issues, including China's large and growing trade surpluses with the United States; it failure to fully implement its World Trade Organization (WTO) commitments, especially in regards to intellectual property rights (IPR); its refusal to adopt a floating currency system; and its maintenance of industrial policies and other practices deemed unfair and/or harmful to various U.S. economic sectors.

Russia by Stuart D Goldman ( Book )
47 editions published between 1992 and 2006 in English and held by 65 libraries worldwide
Vladimir Putin won reelection as Russian President in March 2004, in an exercise in [beta]managed democracy[gamma] in which he took 71% of the vote and faced no serious competition. The pro-Putin Unified Russia party similarly swept the parliamentary election in December 2003 and controls more than two-thirds of the seats in the Duma. Also in March, Putin replaced long-serving Premier Kasyanov with a little-known bureaucrat, Mikhail Fradkov, indicating Putin[alpha]s intent to take the reins of government even more completely into his own hands. Putin[alpha]s twin priorities remain to revive the economy and strengthen the state. He has brought TV and radio under tight state control and virtually eliminated effective political opposition. Federal forces have suppressed large-scale military resistance in Chechnya but face the prospect of prolonged guerilla warfare and terrorist style attacks.

In 2004 the United States incurred a record merchandise trade deficit of $651 billion on a Census basis and $665 billion on a balance-of-payments basis (BoP). A surplus in services trade of $48 billion gave a deficit of $617 billion on goods and services (BoP) for the year ₇ up $121 billion or 24.3% from the $496.5 billion deficit in 2003. In 2004, U.S. exports of goods and services totaled $1.147 trillion, compared with $1.020 trillion in 2003 and $0.975 trillion in 2002. In 2004, U.S. imports were $1.764 trillion, compared with $1.517 trillion in 2003, and $1.387 trillion (balance of payments basis) in 2002. Year-to-date (August 2005), the trade deficit in goods and services, at $463.3 billion, was 17% higher compared to the same period in 2004. Since 1976, the United States has incurred continual merchandise trade deficits. They increased dramatically from $36.5 billion in 1982 to a peak in 1987 at $159.6 billion. The deficit dropped to $74.1 billion in 1991 but rose to $436.1 billion in 2000 and to $532 billion in 2003. (Census basis). Overall U.S. trade deficits reflect a shortage of savings in the domestic economy and a reliance on capital imports to finance that shortfall. Capital inflows serve to offset the outflow of dollars to pay for imports. Movements in the exchange rate also help to balance trade. The rising trade deficit (when not matched by capital inflows) places downward pressure on the value of the dollar which, in turn, helps to shrink the deficit by making U.S. exports cheaper and imports more expensive. Central banks in countries, such as China and Japan, however, have been intervening in foreign exchange markets to keep the value of their currencies from appreciating significantly (if at all) against the dollar. Trade deficits are a concern for Congress because they may generate trade friction and pressures for the government to do more to open foreign markets, to shield U.S. producers from foreign competition, or to assist U.S. industries to become more competitive. As the deficit increases, the risk also rises of a precipitous drop in the value of the dollar and disruption in financial markets. The broadest measure of U.S. international economic transactions is the balance on current account. In addition to merchandise trade, it includes trade in services and unilateral transfers. In 2004, the current account deficit rose to $665.9 billion from $530.6 billion in 2003. After reaching a peak of $160.7 billion in 1987, the current account deficit fell steadily through 1991, when it attained a surplus of $3.8 billion, before turning into deficit again. Higher oil prices and imports are expected to worsen the current account deficit, to $821 billion in 2005 and $922 billion in 2006. In trade in advanced technology products, the U.S. balance dropped from a surplus of $32.2 billion in 1997 to a deficit of $37.0 billion in 2004. In trade in passenger automobiles, the $98 billion U.S. deficit was mainly with Canada, Germany, Korea, Japan, and Mexico. In imports of crude oil, major sources of the $132 billion in imports were Saudi Arabia, Canada, Venezuela, Mexico, and Nigeria.
