    China is like the early USA with great potential whereas USA is like the old Great Britain with glory quickly fading. I don't know about others but I put my bet on China.

    China needs US because of its buying power BUT that is about to be changed. If US economy collapses or dedollarisation is materialised, US will no longer enjoy the buying power it used to have. At the same time, the domestic demand of China is growing, the table will turn around and US will likely need China more in future.

    China migration rate is low for the following reasons: 1) very strict immigration rule. they have enough population, why should they embrace more? 2) very competitive environment. unless you are very capable, very talented and very hardworking, i doubt you want to compete with the chinese. 3) harsher living condition. unlike US where ppl live on borrowed money, life in china can be very challenging BUT if you can do well in China you will be very rich.

    He makes it sound like there's a "winning" side in a trade deficit. That's actually not true, there are advantages and disadvantages for both sides. China may be able to sell more, but they don't get a proportionate number of goods back; they have more employment, but less purchasing power than they otherwise would have. Misunderstanding such a fundamental aspect of trade deficits makes his expertise questionable.

    I could only laugh about your self enjoyment. Many of the things you pointed are not correct. We gonna see in 10~20 years that how China open its market and US close its border will end. China will no longer depend on US market in the future and that is what the Chinese communist party is working on.

    Why warring now, after 30 years of making them rich by flooding your country (Europe-USA- Australia etc.)with their shit products just to make easy money on their shit that was cheap and lousy but the money you gave them was in good solid $$$ now they have the real valor and we have their rubbish to dispose of at our expense. I 'm not a finance expert but I was saying that in 1990.

    The Chinese 35 years ago were eating soil for breakfast, now they save close to 60%. Who can hold the longer ? Experience tell me that they can hold lot longer. America is a capitalist society, China socialist and capitalist this combination had and will prove to be better. Why? Capitalist is too corrupt and socialism is unsustainable, but the combination is the solution.

    Trump knows leverage. Ah give me a break. Yes, he is definitely earning leverage in exchanging of losing global influence in nations such as Canada and Europe. Trump will definitely win short term, but it will damage US reputation in the long run which is bad for business generally. Btw, Trump loves using the bankrupt mechanic, and there is none in Government system unless you want to betray your nation.

    One of China's key to be competitive & giving hard time to any countries to compete with lies in Reverse engineering over the course of years ,they mastered it. With cheap labour & Govt enforced labour policies ,they manipulate Manufacturing . Sometime China brings goods manufactured or produced from Vietnam & Taiwan ,label it & sell it to Western nations. Various course of years they mastered the art of manipulation ,copying & Reverse engineering. Moment some invention coming in the world from any part of the world ( ESpecially USA or West ) China already making it by copying or reverse engineering with out caring for patent issues or patent rights. By the law of trade ,copyright its massive crime. Currency manipulation is another way to keep up boosting their economy through Export ,giving them an unfair edge in world market. Not just China ,Like Donald Trump said InDia , Turkey, many other countries take unfair advantages laid out to help poor nations of developing third world countries 30-40 years ago. All these countries even like of India takes advantage and while impose high tariff or practice unfair trade . China is a big vast economy ,well made ,good potential it has but problem is it is no democracy like America. Like He said ,No one yet in the developing world or Asia has as much as fair free press , freedom of expression like USA ,Europe & West. Migration rate is much lower , China is cosmopolitan but not as accepting or craze for migration among people of world in china ,as compared to US & West. China has a ageing population , slowing down economy. Now USA should start taking steps to infringing the copy rights issues Reverse engineering & rectify the old policies of Trade blunders. Now Donald Trump is trying hard to do that or implement it. Many politicians & main stream media don't like Donald Trump as bizzare he sounds but most rational ,strategic ,good decesion he is taking for his country & it's people.
