Kudlow’s Money Politics

Send the Ultimate Message to China

A number of people, myself included, have looked to Ronald Reagan’s Cold War triumph over the Soviet Union as a possible solution to Red China’s rising arrogance. Times are different today. But Reagan argued forcefully that domestic economic growth is the best weapon against foreign threats.

During the Cold War ’80s, with the U.S. economy booming, we literally produced the goods that the Soviets did not. Today, while China needs to be challenged on its unfair trading practices, the U.S. also must adopt credible, pro-growth policies — including limited government, lower spending, fewer regulations, low tax rates, and a sound King Dollar.

That will send the ultimate message to China: Do not dare tread on the U.S.!
