Donald Trump wants to keep China down, which will likely destroy world prosperity

By Gary Anderson following x   2018 Oct 7, 7:07am 1,170 views   49 comments   watch   sfw   quote     share    


Donald Trump wants to keep China down. The argument is all about Tech, but that misses the issue. It is about something other than tech. It is about energy. Tech is just collateral damage. And it is a cultural war, and Trump wants to war with the world. He wants a nation with 4.4 percent of the world population to control the world. It is dangerous and we could very well see the end of civilization:

I guess Gary is right. The only solution is to let China steal all of our IP and allow them to put massive tariffs on us to compensate.

Ten pound brain you are not. Read the article. Realize that energy is why we are shooting ourselves in the foot and it needs to be researched and fixed. Apple is not the only company that will suffer over energy concerns. Notice how China stopped buying US oil.

People said the same thing about Japan. We do fine with Japan. China is no different. Over a billion potential customers. But we turned on them. And we will lose them and the world economy will shrink. But I guess you will be able to find a cheap house in the Bay Area if you can find financing.

Now back to Gary's orginal post.
China taking a sharp Left back to Communism will be their own undoing.
They are set up with many cities that could be productive like the world has never seen. And most of that consumption could be domestic.
But it would require them taking that same money they would normally spend on State owned Socialist businesses. And instead using it to lend out to entrepreneurial Chinese.
Those are one of the most pennywise, save savvy, and Loan repayment people on the planet. These are people that manage to live on the street, under their pushcarts in the existing Economic/Industrial hubs in the larger mainland Chinese Cities. While managing to save up $20K to $50K in a few years. There's a hell of a boom of National GDP just waiting to explode if China would nurture it, and lean back to Capitalism or at least a flavor of it that suits their needs.

Then there's the One China Road Hwy network they want to build. That will also need them to be more flexible to Capitalism than Socialist or Communism for them to make that reality. Nobody would want to make an Economic Agreement with a Communist Country that involves Jointly creating the Highway that Communist Super Power could use to invade and destroy you.

China's future is bright. If they stop trying to be our Cracker Jack prize manufacturer and focus on their own needs and consumption.

Wu mau bullshit.

Even if true, who cares about the rest of the world's 'prosperity'? Not our problem.

Contrary to popular myth, less than 10% of US GDP involved international trade of goods. Half of that is with the NAFTA partners, anyway.

So if the rest of the world goes to hell as the old Bretton Woods Cold War trading system collapses, America will be just fine.

China has MASSIVE domestic demand that is kept in check with an artificially cheap currency.

Chinese have so much savings, but if the Chicoms let the currency float it would appreciate rapidly, massively increasing buying power and getting Chinese to go on shopping sprees.

China’s biggest problem is that it’s ruled by authoritarians who’ve reluctantly let slip enough leash for their people to make some wealth. They need to keep moving towards freedoms and away from strict Totalitarianism if they want their success to continue. And that is the next step towards them joining the First World. They must continue to grow and bolster their local economy.

It’s the right time for us to have a real trade agreement with China. A big boy agreement like we have with Europe and Mexico and Canada. Trump is working on that.

Trade with China will continue. It MUST continue. So it will.

Those savings are going to start to dip...and within just a few short years, massively so.

As of 2019, the average Chinese worker will be older than the average American worker. And they have no social security and thanks to 1 Child Idiocy, fewer working age people to directly support their parents and grandparents. This is why they saved up so much...like the Japanese did. But once the demographic shift starts towards spending those savings, it will not stop until another generation passes at least.

It is well known that Israel supported ISIS, as did the USA. So, I choose neither. Trump is destroying ISIS, sort of, but then he is fomenting danger in Iran.

Here is what I think will happen, Trump could make the world a much dangerous place than even the neocons because it is based upon his mood.

Same thing is today with China, we have an economic war with them, not an arms race. We either continue policy of weakness, and let them take us over and destroy us. Or we defend America and it's people (us). I'm with Trump, Peace Through Strength.

Any proof of this? Not a fan of Trump, but please link some indicators that are showing a "meltdown" coming.

Also, not sure how it's a trade war. We're the largest consumers per capita. Why do we owe any other country a damn thing? They should be paying US to send their goods here or make their own economies better. This is one of the things I do like about Trump.

Interesting take.

It's normal to keep a competitor down, or at least growing more slowly.

So, Strategist, China and foreign nations own well over 40 percent of US debt. China is the largest foreign holder of US debt. It does not take much buying abstinence or selling to undermine the auctions and screw the collateral.

It isn't the amount already owned. It is the world not participating in US auctions. If nations refuse to participate, interest rates could go up. It is like tariffs. If tariffs are applied, or even if they aren't, the world could simply decide to no longer buy America. Trump is doing damage. We have 4.4 percent of the world population. Asia has 4.5 billion people. 4.5 billion customers. We are screwed if we lose all those customers. Trump is putting our nation in danger, not to mention more countries will no longer trade in dollars, making the reserve currency less attractive.

And Strategist, that article you cited had this as well:

The Chinese government or Chinese investors likely own even more U.S. debt purchased through entities in other countries such as Hong Kong, Luxembourg or the Cayman Islands, all of which are havens for tax shelters.

If they don't buy US bonds, they won't have many other places to park their foreign exchange. Think they will buy Venezuela bonds?
As far as trade is concerned, relax. These trade wars are temporary. The outcome will be more fair trading with China, our rival.
