Keeping with their “Wuhan spirit” and their June 2017″A

Likewise, China’s investments in India have witnessed a sharp upsur

The US’ monetary hegemony is itself a big impedim

ment to the reindustrialization process, which could be viewed as a sort of financial Dutch disease-the apparent causal relationsh

ip between the increase in the economic development of a specific sector and a decline in other sectors. The more

heated the US stock market gets, the more serious the Dutch disease will become. And, ironically, the US leader is k

een on strengthening the stock market to showcase his political and economic track record.

Besides, the US administration cannot launch large-scale infrastructure construction projects, significantly red

uce the trade deficit with China and deny Chinese investors access to its market all at the same time.

The US’ trade deficit stems from its extremely low national saving

s rate and has to be compensated by other countries’ national savings, which in turn

adds to the trade deficit. On the other hand, China’s efficiency in the manufacturing industry mak

Baidu came under fire in 2016 when Wei Zexi, a 21-year

old student from Xidian University in Shaanxi province, died from a rare cancer of the soft tissue. Wei was re

searching the disease on Baidu and came across an advertisement for treatments that proved ineffective.

After Wei’s death, Baidu announced a sweeping restructuring and optimization of its medical business, especially regardi

ng its paid listing practices. It also tightened regulations on medical promotion and enforced clear labeling rul

es that differentiate advertisements from credible medical information, according to media reports.

However, medical advertising remains one of the key sources of income for Baidu, and some are still trying to exploit the s

ystem. In April, the police in Shenzhen, Guangdong province, detained a team of medical fraudsters who drove up r

ankings on Baidu’s research results to promote faulty hospitals to patients, local authorities said.
