six thirty pm in moscow these iraqi headlines egyptians in the voting booths for a second day but there are unclear still over which powers the ruling military will cede and whether the winner will respect the people's revolution none of the thirteen candidates is expected to win a majority which will mean another poll next month. latvia's nursery nightmare nazi sympathizers film showing off the real war weapons to kindergartners billed as an essential national history lesson it's nonetheless raising the alarm over the glorification of nazi is. iran nuclear talks resume but progress proves elusive as
10:31 am
tehran says it won't curb its activities without the west reducing sanctions iranian officials say talks are tricky because the us and e.u. stance is almost as tough as that of israel. coming up on r t how washington could be undermining its own economy through its foreign policy the interview next. we're sitting down with clyde prestowitz founder and president of the economic strategy institute in washington he led many u.s. trade and investment negotiations with japan china latin america and europe in the reagan administration and served as vice chairman of president clinton's commission on trade and investment in the asia pacific region one of your recent articles is called trading jobs for military bases where you're basically saying that the u.s. sector fights this its economic interests in the name of geopolitics. a very very good recent example of the obama administration has just announced
10:32 am
a so-called pivot to asia so the idea is that the u.s. is switching the focus of us military a geo political activity from afghanistan and iraq middle east to aid to the pacific and to china to the china region and doing that in a way on their minds its ability to continue to invest to be competitive with chinese production or with japanese or other asian production well if we take china as an example we know that the u.s. administration is also going out of its way to persuade china to buy less earing in oil for example. what sacrifices could they possibly be offering to the chinese in your opinion you're right the u.s. is asking china to buy less arabian oil the us is asking china to put pressure on north korea to stop its missile program so we're asking the chinese to do
10:33 am
a lot of geopolitical things what we're not asking the chinese to do is to stop manipulating their currency to keep their currency undervalued as a. subsidy for their exports we all complain about that we say fine the u.s. does complain about it their call we don't bashing china no no this is ministration tim geithner the secretary of treasury refuses to say that china is manipulating its currency he will not formally say that because formally to say it would then compel him to take some action he doesn't want to take any action because he knows that that would cause a huge conflict with china but we heard president obama say that he put together a team to deal with right. the other team to deal with unfair trade practices he didn't say currency program remember that that in the world of globalization tree it is handled by the trade representative by the world
10:34 am
trade organization trade does not include currency currency is always handled by trey's a reason ministries of finance and the i.m.f. to separate tracks so what the president says he's doing with unfair trade he's not talking currency. and when he talks currency he doesn't say currency manipulation because he doesn't want the conflict and he doesn't want one for a conflict because by not forcing the currency issue it makes it easier for the president has the chinese to buy less iranian oil or to ask the chinese through pressure the north koreans to stop their missiles so he doesn't want that conflict because he wants that has them to buy less or when he'd rather ask them to buy less arraigning of oil and he would ask them to stop manipulating their currency which in your view is damaging to the u.s. economy well i think the currency problem is
10:35 am
a very significant challenge to the u.s. economy. and i actually think it's more and more of an important challenge than uranium oil also in one of your latest articles you imagine you try to imagine a statement by hillary clinton addressed to china. piece of it so it's quite pressed of it writing as if you were going to reclaim addressing the chinese you see our mutual friends in asia such as the southeast asian countries and japan and south korea want to keep doing business like crazy with you but also want us to be a kind of counterweights so that they don't totally fall under your influence because we're no longer economically competitive our only counterweight tall is our military which we are anxious to you know to a guy with a hammer all problems look like nails but we don't really think you are new it's just that we only have a hammer now that you have pretty much taken all the other tools no tools left
10:36 am
really well the u.s. is suffering declining economic component to soul we have a big trade deficit we are heavily in debt to china to the rest of the world i mean we are we have so many areas. expertise left but our major source of international power is not economic its military and we're a lot like actually the former soviet union. soviet union didn't collapse because it lacked military strength it collapsed because it lacked economic strength and same things happening tonight is that you think it's collapsing well not not collapsing just yet but it's not on a good trick making someone in the administration behind very closed doors would explain to you that it's how the u.s. is protecting its economic interests through military means what would you say you
10:37 am
few heard that explanation let's look at the so-called the the new pivot to asia. we're beefing up our military deployments in the western pacific there's no threat to us the western pacific china is not going to invade the united states north korea's missile is can't reach the united states american oil doesn't come through the straits of malacca so what's the threat how is it that this military deployment is protecting our interests. i don't see it i mean i think it's an infatuation with empire i think it's infatuation with the exercise of power it's a legacy of the second world war and of the cold war and we have a big national security machine. and that machine is powerful politically and our system and it looks for ways to make itself useful and so that's what it does but it's not clear to me that this is in the interest of the united states the
10:38 am
incentives in the system right now are for the production of tradeable girl and the provision of tradeable services to leave the united states the united states is not pursuing any of the policies necessary to reverse the incentives because its total focus is on the geopolitical. priority it's all about military bases and expanding u.s. military around the globe it's all about maintaining the primacy of the u.s. national security establishment you know at the expense of the u.s. economy yes in terms of jobs but not the interests of big corporations well also the interests of big corporations why global companies can achieve a short to medium term benefit by moving production to china
10:39 am
or elsewhere where they get big subsidies and incentives however typically when they make these moves they also are compelled to transfer technology. and what we've seen in many instances of the past is that and this really they seem to do well but as they transfer technology. other competitors crop up and begin to cock it up overtake them and so they do well for five or ten years and then suddenly they're out of business let's go back to to the second feiss and concessions that the u.s. makes in the name of geopolitics as you were arguing the subject that you brought up is very interesting and i want to talk a little bit about the gulf region the u.s. has a vast military presence there and it's building up in terms of let's say political concessions one example is bahrain when the u.s. basically has eyes wide shot human rights violations there arguably because of its fifth fleet that bahrain hosts and you were talking about economic
10:40 am
concessions don't you think they go hand in hand with the you was breaking its political principles as well oh yes i do you know i mean i think the situation in bahrain is extremely painful to the us in terms of human rights we clearly should be on the side of the shiites but we've sided with the ruling sunni regime because of the base of the system in the gulf and so yeah i mean i think we compromised. so it's not just economic concessions that the u.s. makes but also political well something. you know some kind of compromising of our own principles. something i know that. in all conversations i had with economists in america at a very high level of concern about china a fear of china's dominance if you will i want to understand what is at the root of
10:41 am
the problem is is it just money it is just money in the economy one would argue the u.s. and china are very mutually dependent so what is there to be really concerned about though no actually that there's so much fear of china i think there's more fear of the future of united states i guess the way i would say it is this. you know if you i mean if you play the card game bridge. but if you think of globalization like a game of bridge and you say that you know each country has a head of cards and you ask yourself which country has the best hand you know if you were playing the game whose hand would you like to have. and if i look at all the cards i would say well the united states still has a lot of good cards i'd probably prefer to play the u.s. hand but in bridge you can have
10:42 am
a really good hand and you can still lose if you play badly. and right now i would say the united states is playing very badly we're not playing our cards well we're not playing our cards well because we have focused on this geo political priority on this military national security priority we keep playing the great game we keep putting troops in afghanistan and fleets in the persian gulf. pivoting to asia while other countries like china like brazil like germany are focusing on investing and educating and innovate and becoming more competitive but we're not doing and i think that is the source of concern and worry in the u.s. thank you very much ok good to see you.
10:43 am
my parents really truly honestly believe that what had happened was as a result of my father's exposure to agent orange i was born with multiple problems . i was missing my leg and my fingers and my big toe on my right foot i use my hands a lot in my artwork i find myself drawing my hands quite a bit to me for my hands you know just as if anyone would. but they do tell a story they tell us story of. the ox and. there
