    “But we should remember that China can play this game too, especially as its economy grows.”
    You are assuming China’s economy will continue to grow. China has an export model economy built on the manipulation of their currency and trade regulations. This is the same model Japan has been using and it has put Japan’s economy into the ditch for almost 25 years. So what makes you think that China without any of the world class brands that Japan has, can avoid a similar fate? Cheap Labor? Cheap labor is common all over Asia, and China’s is becoming not so cheap as their competitors. China’s ability to play the free trade game, is contrary to their strategy of maintaining an export model economy built on currency and trade manipulation. China will not be developing markets with free trade agreements.
