Chinese People's Daily critiques US protectionism with go analogy

"Other US trade experts believe that the US textile industry is a declining one that is not worthy of protection. There is a saying when playing Chinese chess of go (weiqi) that 'instead of loving chess pieces in order to seek survival, it is better to give up the ones that are not as good in order to get advantages'. It is not wise for the US to 'love' the 'chess piece' in its textile manufacturing industry. It is the best policy to for the US accelerate the industry's restructuring."
