An anti-Empire alt-media site that registers 300,000 monthly views is asking you to help raise it a measly $500 per month for the next three months.

There are similar news sites that are somewhat more influential, with 500,000 or 1 million views, but their money spend is anywhere from 10 times to 50 times greater.

Thus by backing Checkpoint Asia specifically you're actually multiplying the influence of your alt-media donation dollar by several times.

Same goes for the actual product. At a fraction of the money ask, Checkpoint Asia does nearly as much quantity-wise, and picks content that, in my opinion, is smarter and more worthwhile for the long run than what anybody else does.

So far 42 of you are backing the site for the next 3 months with $1000. Thank you!

US Companies Actually Sell $500 Billion in Goods and Services in China and US Gov’t Taxes All of It (VIDEO)

$150 billion in direct exports, and $350 billion in goods they make in China and elsewhere outside the US

US companies export $130-170 billion in goods and services from the US to China, but their total sales on the Chinese markets are around $500 billion, when you count all the stuff they make and sell in China, or bring in from their plants in third countries.

US stockholders benefit from this via dividends and stock appreciation, and so does the US government which taxes profit regardless of where it was made, and subjects foreign operations of its entities to some other taxes as well albeit at low rates.

The comparable number of goods Chinese firms sell in the US that is not sourced from China is $35 billion.
