China has done what it needed to do in order to pull hundreds of millions of people out of poverty. And, in my opinion, China has done an amazing job of doing that. If America needed to protect its intellectual property rights, they should have, (1) not shared their tech with China through outsourcing labor to them in order to increase their own corporate profits and feed American corporate greed (2) been smart enough to know that intellectual property rights are not guaranteed all over the world as they are in the U.S. Even in the manipulation of its currency, China does what it has to do to survive and compete. America didn't make the rules for the whole world. If America could have done the same in order to feed their greed, you can bet that they would have done so.
