Stanford Should Disclose The Names of Chinese Donors
I wonder what Nevada exports to Switzerland; gold and silver?
The maps are interesting.
DOJ Drops Charges Against 5 Researchers Accused of Hiding Chinese Military Affiliations
China is toast despite what the media or trade balances say
Although these charts may project doomsday picture for US.
.. But China did this with tri-evils.
1) Using humans/inmates as "cheap forced labor" and curtailing all human rights.

Why do you think so @HunterTits ?
There was a time that Western nations wouldn't trade with Communist nations for precisely this reason. This policy reversed once the USSR collapsed.

Eh? US and Western Europe have never stopped trading with Commies. US was selling car plants and power generators to Stalin while he was killing millions. What do you think Soviet cars and trucks made by GAZ plant were? Fucking Fords to a last fucking bolt! The most successful Soviet tank of WWII? Based on design bought from American engineer J.W.Christie. After the war they again were buying automotive plants from the West (FIAT), grain from US and Canada and selling oil and gas to Western Europe. It never stopped.
Unfortunately Darwin reigns supreme and their is no justice for weak.

If you are weak, you must be wise. This is the way things have naturally played out forever in human societies.
But socialism breaks that natural law, allowing the weak to be wildly successful by flaunting their weakness and creating mass numbers of their own kind all supported by the collective of productive workers. It’s not a system that can ever work for very long.
The Nasdaq Golden Dragon China Index, which follows the 98 biggest US-listed Chinese stocks, has fallen by almost 15% in the last two trading sessions.
The index has now plummeted by more than 45% since hitting a record high in February.
The slump comes after a series of crackdowns by Beijing on its technology and education industries.
This has led to around $770bn (£556bn) being wiped off the value of US-listed Chinese stocks in the last five months alone.
Patrick saysAny private company in China can be taken over or shut down at any moment by the CCP.
In this case I bet the firms referred to were scams that didn't pay off the right CCP people, so were shut down. Or their gigs were up and the public found out. Same result. Not really different than how things operate here, when you think of it.
China wants to be a manufacturing-based superpower, not a financialized one (like the US).

The Chinese are pretty smart. That's why they got all the factories. That's what gives them power over America now.
Those factories lose viability as they rust and the knowledge of how to run them is lost.
It takes DECADES to build up a decent blue water navy.

I'm afraid it will also take decades for the US to recover its lost manufacturing ability, and that if and only if there is a determined push to bring back manufacturing here, as Trump advocates.
Now that the oligarchy has subverted democracy to get Trump out of office, I don't see that happening any time soon.
In the meantime, China has great power over us to cut off supplies of finished goods and parts.
I don't agree. Most of what we import from China we don't really need.

Remember during the beginning of the pandemic when there were shortages of antibiotics made only in China, and the US couldn't make them because the raw materials also come only from China?
I remember that.
US can produce antibiotics too.
farmer2021 saysUS can produce antibiotics too.
The question is how quickly and at what cost.
I think it would take years to recover US antibiotic manufacturing ability.
Take the PRC off of SWIFT.

WASHINGTON, Aug 2 (Reuters) - China's government quietly issued new procurement guidelines in May that require up to 100% local content on hundreds of items including X-ray machines and magnetic resonance imaging equipment, erecting fresh barriers for foreign suppliers, three U.S.-based sources told Reuters.
