    I hope they can make a deal soon. 401K isn't looking too good for a lot of people.
    Maybe China should learn from Japan a little bit. Just make some concessions as long as it's not too ridiculous.
    They were clearly not prepared. Clean up the IP theft issue, it'll be good for them too in the future.

    China will not be isolated. Not while there is money to be earned.

    Talk about Hong Kong, meanwhile outside their door.

    It's a distraction man. And you fell for it. Perhaps G7 leaders could address the crowd outside. Perhaps they're unwilling to face up to their demands.

    Or they could face their electorates at the ballot box. Give Hong Kong universal suffrage and the protesters would not have as much credibility.

    It was given to them. They voted it down. Now they complain.

    You know this is bollocks. We know you know this is bollocks. You know we know you know this is bollocks. Yet you persist in posting this and countless other examples. What is your agenda?

    Ha ha now that really is the kettle calling the pot black ! When you look at the combined finance elite of this world, they are all shady if you were privileged enough to sit in on what really goes on in closed room boardrooms across the world.

    ' The Secret of a great success for which you are at a loss to account is a crime that has never been found out, because it was properly executed.' - Honoré de Balzac

    Also what Steve says ( he has lived and worked in Shanghai so he has ' some ' experience ) he mentions a very relevant book as he talks on this clip, "Unrestricted Warfare by Qiao Liang & Wang Xiangsui." A pretty relevant book in my opinion as it does correlate a distinct course trajectory, as the west has systematically deindustrialised itself, albeit losing its manufacturing independence / skills base, quite rapidly over the last 20 years. Not a good position to be in

    Let's see how the next decade unfolds, my personal gut feeling is it is going to be a pretty rough ride between 2020 - 2030.
