I really don''t see the power base in "those" countries making that type of decision
It would be self-destructive to their aims--
Don't you think?

China will of course have trouble growing the economy. They are going from a very poor, rural agricultural society to a modern industrial society in a very short period of time. And they have a population of over a billion while they are trying to do it. There will undoubtedly be significant issues that come up

You realize that AI is just like any other paradigm that emerges in the economic system, to be gamed by those inclined to abuse power. The overall dynamic will remain the same, and AI will be owned and controlled by the rich to do its bidding..

Remember that "1984" came about to waste resources so there would not be the well-fed idleness, that advancing industry promised.

Aridin. annual Trade deficits are ALWAYS net detrimental to their nation's GDP and numbers of jobs.
I'm among the proponents of Wikipedia's improved version of a trade policy described in Wikipedia's “Import Certificates” article.

I prefer government policies conducted by explicitly drafted laws and regulations rather than by ad-hok negotiated compromises.

[It's illogical to protect USA steel producers with tariffs while not similarly enacting tariffs upon all goods to the extent that they contain steel or steel substitutes. A trade policy should be general, rather than product specific].

Import Certificate policy is substantially market driven and does not discriminate among foreign nations, or industries, or enterprises, or upon almost any types of goods. It would increase USA's GDP and numbers of jobs more than otherwise.
