Q: will trade war strengthen china?

https://edition.cnn.com/2018/10/04/business/us-trade-war-impact-china-ec...

 

This cnn article has the view that by not buying the cheap goods from china, the u.s is forcing china to rethink it's economy which will ultimately help it develop much faster

 

for instance, china has the financial clout to enter the financial services market in  a much more comprehensive way than at present, but has not been motivated to so, as it the model at the moment has allowed double digit growth for many years.

 

 

will the trade war cause china to be more self sufficient, and make them target high salaried western jobs?

I think China will definitely come out stronger but not the way they would like.

 

They will have to provide good customer service to each other and get people to spend within China. They will have to cut deals that benefit both parties and not screw other countries and brag about how great they "do business", that I have been hearing for close to a decade.

 

Absolutely nothing wrong with be a self sufficient country as much as possible, but they will take a big hit on property speculation and debt eventually, the sooner they take the punch and start growing again, the less pain will result.

 

I'm sure the CCP will blame all the problems on outside foreigners and strengthen their hold on the country, but if they try war as a distraction, the country will split up and perish. China plays the superior we know best "card" or the we are victims of oppressed imperalists "card" very well, but the whole world knows this game and the result. It's no big secret strategy anymore.

Of course. China will become the respectable bystander-superpower, while all the EU, Russia and esp USA drama unfolds. Just by comparison, the previously-abominable Chinese regime will gain in international standing while all the other nations turn towards protectionism and destruction of social capital.

Also, they are a monoculture - one race one language for the most part. Do you think all the lamentations about the 'disastrous' multicultural societies in America and Europe, might promote their own monoculture? Coincidence I'm sure, and all the internet hacking of sentiments and elections, all just 'freedom of speech'.

For a long time, I've been convinced that both Russian and Chinese internet trolls are engaged in this dodgy form of marketing, and trust the angry pensioners living among us to fall for the agitation, and hurt their own countries' interests. And they call themselves nationalists, ha!

What are they trying to achieve? Race riots? They don't live in a monocultural society anymore, so work with the tools at hand. I'm no fan of muslims myself, but by complaining about their presence, all I'm doing is labeling my own country as 'tainted'. Useless attitude.

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
