US hack leads the charge against China

24 0 1

With the American prosecution – or persecution – of Chinese telecoms giant Huawei and its chief financial officer, facts matter far less than optics. Noted US economist Jeffrey Sachs practically provoked a lynch mob in his own country after he penned a widely distributed opinion piece pointing out the obvious hypocrisy and double standards of the American government.

He listed 26 major financial institutions, both American and non-American, which have been fined for breaching US sanctions against North Korea and/or Iran since 2010: “In all of these cases, the corporation – rather than an individual manager – was held accountable.”

But, at a time when both the American liberal and right-wing elites have turned against China, Sachs is feeding himself to the wolves. And who is leading the pack?
