Cloudscape is up to millions of interpretation. It never repeats itself and it never stops evolving.

This is how humans should live. For me, everything is an experiment. And I try not to repeat what I did before. This is the only way to live — to try different things and see what happens.

Life does not come with a manual. It has no rules — so as Mark Twain once said:

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

# SML Translate

Rebalancing the world economy: EU-China trade deficit

Image by European Parliament
The US trade deficit with China was one of the causes of the financial crisis, but Europe also runs a trade deficit with China. MEPs on the International China Trade Committee organised a public hearing to assess the situation before drafting a report on how to avoid such global trade imbalances.

With developed markets on the brink of recession, China has become the growth market for many European exporters. In 2010, they exported goods and services worth some €113.1 billion to China. But complaints about unfair trade practices, an artificially low yuan and political hurdles are problems. Our info graphic shows the EU trade deficit with China was €168.6 billion in 2010.

Europe mainly exports machines and transport equipment (more than 60% of EU exports in 2010), chemicals and raw materials. China Imports from China are mostly consumer goods including office and telecommunication devices and clothing.
