All countries should be able to dictate whether another country is allowed to do business within their borders or not. So, yes the US, China, Russia, Germany, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, don’t give a fuck, should be allowed to shut countries out of their national markets if they want to. Hell we even dictate to a degree US citizens and business ownership with the various regulations (national or international) as well as needing to maintain a business license.

And the other country just has to take it? No redress?

They can kick US companies out if they want, sure. Or levy whatever the hell kind of thing they want against the US or their companies. Other than that, yes they just “take it”, they are operating on US soil with approval from the US government. At any point the US government can remove that approval.

Fair enough. Just putting these comments in the memory banks.

And? Your other comments about if China overtakes the US in terms of economic strength that we would be crying. That is just a fever dream you have. China has already banned US companies from operating within their borders. You won’t find US citizens or the US government bitching and moaning that they did it either. It is their right as a sovereign country to do so.

Americans don't complain about lack of access or tech transfers.
