Vice-President Xi Likes the "Cutting Subsidies" id 03/09/2012 @ 9:40am The Chinese Vice-President and "Heir Apparent" for the Presidential Post was in Iowa as part of his "China Promo" tour. He oozed 'Family Values', Love of the Farming Life, Hospitality, etc., IF he could be one of this years bevy of Presidential Candidates, he might even be a front runner. On top of all that great PR, he penned an order for about $4 Billion worth of Iowa Soy-why thanks, Mr Xi. But every step and stop on his trek across the US, he also made a point of declaring what a good thing getting rid of subsidies would be, how that would open up Markets and "level the playing field." Sounds like this is something the Chinese REALLY want. That, in and of itself, ought to be a compelling reason for leaving the subsidies in place.
