Given the level of protectionism, it isn't from free trade.

Debt, China is very skilled at hiding its public debt into corporate SOEs and under several layers of local governments.

 

China's full debt to GDP ratio is now over 300%, and that's excluding shadow banking, it's more than any other country in the world except Zimbabwe,

 

It's more than the US even though the US total wealth is around 80 trillions and China's around 20 trillions.

 

They are able to prevent inflation thanks to the foreign currency reserves accumulated over decades, they use these to manipulate the Yuan's exchange rate and keep prices under control.

 

Also China not being a free market, they can command goods and produces to be sold at a certain price regardless of their actual value.

 

The tipping point will be when they run out of dollars to sell and the yuan gets out of control, not sure when, no one knows the exact amount of their reserves, it could be days or decades.

 

As far as OBOR goes, other countries should just take the free infrastructure that China expects to use to extract raw materials from them, nothing obligates those countries to give China anything down the road. No international court has agreed to stamp the agreements that China wants to sign with other countries, so it's like they don't even exist.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
