Could China’s economy collapse?

For almost half a century, Chinese officials have overseen one of the greatest economic transformations in human history.

China’s economic crisis is much bigger than expected – its property market, the largest in the world, is collapsing

The situation in China is much worse than originally thought.  The largest property market in the world is set to collapse and the ramifications will impact the entire world.  We’ve been discussing China’s economic issues for years.  Recently this was even discussed with Steve Bannon on The War Room.

The reason for the discussion on the Tobin tax in China

Tax every major financial transaction for social equity by a fraction and allocate the funds to redistribution initiatives.

Cadence Column: Asia, October 11, 2021

Biden is creating a special center within CIA for China. Xi Jinping is irate. Biden knows China almost as well as Trump. He met with Chinese officials as Vice President.

China’s electronic warfare aircraft J-16D spotted near Taiwan; experts say India border could be next

China is rapidly acquiring new military technologies and weapons as it tries to dominate the Indo-Pacific region, especially the South China Sea which it considers as its backyard.

Instead of confronting China’s rise, we must manage its decline

Nations, like people, have reputations, and in both cases there can be gaps between the rep and the reality.
