China called for Asia-Pacific nations to improve their coordination and communication on macro-economic policy on Wednesday. Chinese Vice Premier Zhang Gaoli urged a more integrated regional approach during his keynote speech at a meeting of finance ministers from Asia-Pacific nations. He warned that the regional economy was facing "serious challenges." "We need to improve the coordination and dialogues on macro-economy policies, share policy information and conduct prompt and effective communications with the market so as to reduce the negative spillover effect out of policy adjustments," said Zhang. Asia-Pacific finance ministers are meeting in Beijing amid concerns over a slowdown in the regional economy highlighted by lower Chinese growth figures. Opening the meeting of 21 ministers from Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation economies, Zhang Gaoli said recovery from the global economic downturn had been tepid. But he said China was on track to meet its loose goal of 7.5 percent growth for the year, with inflation stable and the economy set to produce more than 10 (m) million new jobs. "We have full confidence in the Chinese economy," said Zhang, who ranks seventh in the ruling Communist Party's hierarchy. The meeting comes a day after China, the world's No. 2 economy, announced that economic growth had dwindled to a five-year low of 7.3 percent in the last quarter, raising concerns of spill-over effects on the global economy.

As protectionist policies shift trade from advanced economies toward more rapid-growing regions in Asia, accessing capital in a financial system dominated by state and family entities will pose a challenge to capital adequacy to fund Asia's greatly-needed projects. China's "Belt and Road Initiative" to fund Asia's infrastructure needs is a cooperative trade-based means to put resources to work. Market-based signals can help allocate resources more efficiently, but will require greater participation by non-state financial institutions like banks and private equity firms in a deeper market-based ecosystem. How can institutions amplify market signals and broaden access to capital with bank-based financial systems and embryonic financial markets? How can we ensure adequate access to capital with a financial system dominated by state or family-directed financial flows?

This week, we've reported heavily on the private foreign-affairs group known as the Trilateral Commission, while noting that this group of about 300 government, corporate, banking, academic and media heavyweights will meet in Washington this weekend. However, President Obama won't be at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel where the Trilateral Commission will meet Friday thru Sunday. He's too busy on his eight-day Asian trip, for which he departed on Tuesday. He'll dine with the Japanese emperor, tour a giant mosque in Malaysia, speak to U.S. troops in the Philippines—and return some ancient seals to South Korea stolen by U.S. soldiers in the Korean War. However, he won't visit China. But Beijing's increasingly muscular attitude toward its Pacific neighbors will shadow Obama throughout his trip. Yet here's something that won't make the nightly news: While the secretive Trilateral Commission makes economic and political "recommendations" that the U.S. government is expected to follow, the president appears to implementing the core Trilateral agenda—even before that group meets in Washington. Moreover, the Philippines, Japan and South Korea all want U.S. protection from China, due to its growing influence and ambition. In one of several maritime disputes, Japan and China are competing for ownership of the tiny Senkaku islands. The islands are administered by Japan. One goal strongly favored by the Trilateral group is a "rebalancing" of U.S. power toward East Asia. That means more U.S. military involvement, along with deeper economic ties that give the West more control over the region. Obama indeed seems to following the Trilateral group's prescribed path. But if the U.S. promises a long-term, increased military presence in the region, then it risks taking on additional commitments that will lead to even more foreign entanglements. That is the very thing that founders like George Washington counseled that the U.S. should avoid. And, sure enough, the main Trilateral Commission goal—the completion of the massive Trans-Pacific Partnership free-trade deal—is being sought, behind the clutter of other issues. USA Today did note: "The United States seeks progress on the long-delayed Trans Pacific Partnership trade deal, but security concerns are likely to dominate amid China's demands that it owns the entire South China Sea . . ." As we've reported, in the week leading up to the Commission's Washington meeting, Trilateral Commissioner Tom Donilon penned a revealing Washington Post column. In it, he strongly backed both the Asia "rebalancing" and the Trans-Pacific trade deal. These Trilateral Commission goals are discussed largely off the public record—but our public officials are expected to pursue those goals. Notably, the 11-nation Trans-Pacific pact will have 12 nations once Japan joins, as is expected. However, the Trans-Pacific scheme does not include China. This has prompted China to feel like it's surrounded by a Western military and economic crusade. Meanwhile, Japan wants America's protection from the rise of China. But the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative noted what appears to be the real goal of Obama's trip. Regarding the Trans-Pacific trade pact, known as the TPP, the Trade Office noted: "With Japan's entry, TPP countries would account for nearly 40 percent of global GDP and about one-third of all world trade. TPP Ministers noted that Japan's participation in the negotiation will underscore the economic significance of TPP and its promise as a pathway toward a Free Trade Area of the Asia Pacific." That colossal Free Trade Area may be another major leap forward for the ruthless forces of globalization—en route to a one-world monopoly of high-finance for the privileged few.
