Re: A dithering Obama emboldened China

Being Chinese yourself, you must know that the Chinese tend to be pretty rational people, having had 5,000 years to learn how to deal with other peoples... There are zero people, Chinese or otherwise, who are 5,000 years old, and you are oversimplifying and overestimating the positive impact of cul...

Re: Calling all economists. I need your help.

Minus the dollar because the idea is to replace the dollar and its power over international trade. It has nothing to do with anti-Americanism... That you would seek replacement rather than balance is just more evidence of what I mean. The US has weaponized the dollar. There is no alternative to rep...

Re: Calling all economists. I need your help.

In fact, yes!... But minus the dollar... It's statements like this that come to mind when you claim not to be reflexively anti-American. Minus the dollar because the idea is to replace the dollar and its power over international trade. It has nothing to do with anti-Americanism... That you would se...

Re: Calling all economists. I need your help.

Industrialised countries could create an international account unit, based on a basket of currencies, minus the US dollar, which could serve as the currency for international trade.

Re: A dithering Obama emboldened China

What right does the US have of trying to "contain" China in Asia? China has more right to influence the course of events in East Asia than the US. As long as China does not violate the Charter of the UN it may do whatever it wants, and it's up to other Asian nations to decide what type or relations...

Re: Russia's GRU intelligence agency blows it again.

Methnks Putin is looking around the poker table trying to figure out who the fool is in the chess game. The level of incompetence they displayed in this botched affair beggars belief.
