China's aggression is changing the nature of sovereignty.

Recommended Posts

Super powers around the world started WW2 to reset the economy and Japan dragged US to WW2 as well. So after these destructions, US naturally the only one has the capital to maintain the sea trading routes, lend money to rebuild Europe, or support Western Europe in the Cold War and become "police of  the world".

Pros:

No direct war between super powers anymore as none can oppose US in a brief direct total war. 

Cons:

The more US interferes to the world, the more the world interferes back to US politics and traditional US style. Because US economy need to be structured for consumption to export USD and top R&D innovation .  It leads to the gap between the rich and poor  because on use the advantages of this system to learn useful knowledge to make innovation & money while other feeling lack behind and don't know how to catch up and feel they are the victims.

The modern liberalism or socialism, originated in Europe,  would have no chance to corrupt US people with politicians, mainstream... if USD was not world reserve currency after WW2. 

If everyone in US were back to the old way, stop being world reserve currency , learned hard, worked hard and didn't expect handout from government or feeling entitlements. these would happen:

1 The world economy will have to restructure to a new system USD will become stronger with high interest rate (I have no idea what will replace USD as a standard). Euro dollar bubble outside of US collapsed this will affect EU, Swiz, Japan, Singapore and UK the most, along with any developing countries that currently have a big foreign debt nominated in USD.

However in the long run in the recovery after the big adjustment, developed countries in EU cannot compete with productivity with developing countries  like China, India, ASEAN  for cheap labor, cannot compete with Arab or Russia or South America or Australia or Canada  for natural resources, UK for trade network and cannot compete with US in productivity from innovation. 

2 US can cut back military spending as police of the world while others will need to spend more to secure the trade networks. Less tax for the US people and higher tax else where. US government shrink smaller and private sector booming.

3 A risk of WW3 when no country have the superior military and politicians will use war to reset the economy for their votes, just like situations leaded to  WW1 and WW2. Yes Hitler was a dictator, but let's not forget he was elected before became a dictator. And I couldn't see any advantage EU have over Russia or China rising in power.

EU politicians know this and the establishment  politicians in both parties of the US know this as well. That is why they were freak out with Trump's MAGA direction and mainstream all over the world have a propaganda against Trump at all cost. They need USD as a world reserve currency to keep their powers, hegemony and to keep the status quo so that's why US need to keep printing USD and US welfare and woke and liberal movement to keep US government grows bigger.

You can watch this video instead.

According to the video, the price tag is 1.7 billion per kilometer, which is close to 3.5 billion per mile.  At this price, you can expect the New York metro to be more opulent than Arab sheikh palaces.  Instead, this is what many stations look like... what other decay is not shown..

There is something seriously wrong with America, and I don't think that changing your elected officials is going to solve the problem.  You can change your administration, but Wall Street still rules your country.

I say this as someone who received my training from IBM lecturers, and worked for a number of American technology companies.  I have seen what the focus on meeting short term stock market expectations have done to once proud and widely admired organizations. 

Btw, wishing you a belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

When you have far left wing attorney generals elected, mayors elected, councilmen elected, judges elected, the police are not allowed to do their job. Instead they are criticized for the crimes they are not allowed to deter. When they make a mistake, they are treated worse than felons with a long rap sheet. That is even when their record is faultless! That is to satiate the hate of the criminal community which, by the way, gets far more lenient treatment. So you will never get good law enforcement in such a setup.Voters will get what they vote for.

The voters voted. The majority disagrees with you, right or wrong that is the way it is.  If the country is full of liberal hippies, then the country should be led by liberal hippies, no? 

If you think that some right wing "leader" knows better than the people then perhaps show yourself the door.

Law enforcement should be held to a higher standard.

All criminals have a "[faultless record]" until they first get caught.

Cops tend to protect their own so don't doubt there are plenty of blind eyes turned within the force when they see unscrupulous behaviour.

If only it were that simple Tomasz. Do you think the Saudi's or Nigerians etc would accept the worthless "Chinacoin" in exchange for their oil?

There has never been such a thing as petrodollar, only petrogold. That is, the only way to clear several millions gazillions worth of oil spot contracts near instantaneously is to have the brokers go into the back room in a commodity exchange and move some gold bars between their safe deposit boxes. China has gold, and US does not really. China wins. I don't need to explain why and how the US/UK commodity exchanges are woefully short on physical gold, do I?

No frankfurter, you are clearly not a scientist and have no concept of how science and technology is generated and dispersed. You would not have a solar panel industry without Australian expertise. Now that China has basically declared war on Australia, you will find that Chinese Phd students will be replaced with those from India, to your demise.

Could you be more specific about the critical Australian contributions to PV tech? I am a scientist and invested into PV projects as a VC.

Actually you are quite correct. The American press has lost their way.  The US public was hoodwinked...bamboozled in 2020. 

2022 will more than probably be the end of the Democratic Party as we know it now. XI and Putin are quite aware of this, and more than probably take advantage of this bubble. To anticipate aggressive actions towards Taiwan and Ukraine are inevitable.

 

There is no point in "aggressive action" towards Ukraine anymore. The place is broke and Russia would have to subsidize it if we were to take it over.

You are probably right. I am thinking of the policewoman with a 26 year spotless record who shot the black person and was recently sentenced severely. He was not complying with commands. She thought she was shooting a tazer. Adrenaline can do that to you. Especially if you think your rookie partner is at risk of dying. If she had just shot him, any sentence would have actually been lighter IMHO. 

To me, it was unfair sentencing like that, which will discourage good people from going into law enforcement.

You make not sense at all. There are many layers of people that make those decisions, and I already explained that.

Actually Frankfurter, the only reason Mr Xitler did not perform a repeat of the Beijing Massacre is because I warned him against it. Now that "one country, two systems" has been thrown in the bin, the West is even more determined to help Taiwan defend herself from the CCP death machine.

Have we got this right?  YOU warned Xi.  hmmm, a warning is an advice, no?  The party to give advice is an advisor, no?  So you are stating you are an advisor to Xi ? hmmm, you have stated you are Australian.  So Xi takes advice from an Australian?  I happen to know who advises Xi: nobody is Australian.

But to humour you, let's assume you had or hold now some office in Australia whereby you would have some contact with Xi. This would be as Prime Minister and below. As PM, or delegate, you would certainly present the interests of your country. But such is hardly advice.

Thus I find your claim to be an advisor to be incredulous and patently false.

Actually, the world is moving towards dropping the US dollar for trade and even your Australia is looking into it.  This is inevitably the result of technology advances, and not geopolitics.

https://www.scmp.com/economy/china-economy/article/3147311/australia-malaysia-singapore-join-forces-test-digital

However, by massively printing dollars and producing very little that the world needs, the US appropriates the wealth of countries that hold US currency, and, exports inflation.  Some countries, like Indonesia are rapidly dropping the US dollar from trade, because they are  alarmed, and don't want their wealth stolen.

The trend towards digitalisation, cashless transactions, e-commerce and Fintech is making the US dollar system and SWIFT anachronistic.  I recently bought some industrial equipment from overseas and paid for it using Cryptocurrency.  That supplier accepts Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and USDT as payment tender.

It will be interesting times in the next few years, but I am placing my bets on Crypto. 😉

China has gold, and US does not really. China wins. I don't need to explain why and how the US/UK commodity exchanges are woefully short on physical gold, do I?

In the US the contracts sell out on a specific day with an expired date. At the expired date of the contract, the one who own the contract have to go get the oil. This is the reason WTI was in negative last April because no one wanted the oil and they pay money for people to get their oil contract. Maybe that is how thing works on Russia commodity exchange?

But the gold price and oil contracts are both measured in USD. The gold China accumulated overtime rarely leave China, only USD. I don't believe the official number of  1,948 tons China has. I expected 10 times more as 1948 tons maybe the official number in Chinese Central Bank that China is obligated to report to the IMF.  I don't believe China want to store their accumulate gold out of the borders. 

The gold price are manipulated by futures contracts and the spot is just the added premium price + delivery. Most of the case the gold custodies only change the label with allocated gold in gold custody. If everyone who have a contract for spot deliveries do a version of bank run, it would be very interesting. However more and more people reports that the spot gold custody send them the USD rather than physical gold delivery, it depends on the contract with the spot gold custody.

Most of the gold custodies have 3rd independent parties to regularly check but I guess they can trust rent the gold from somewhere to pass the check. I recall last September JPMorgan fined $1.26 billion for manipulating precious metals. I haven't keep up with the gold for months. 

Mostly developing countries Central Bank in Asia, include China and India's use gold as reserve to  hedge their currencies or USD inflation. They make good use of the gold price manipulation for accumulations. Even the gold bugs in US has been waiting for decades for this to happen as they will get rich if USD is back to gold standard, aka short USD. 

Since Xi got into power, instead to use the USD China has from exporting for buying US treasuries, they lent them out to set the debt traps in Belt and Road. Yet the US treasury bond yield in last 10 years keep dropping, suggesting  USD long term trend monetary deflation as the velocity aka economics activities world wide are slowing down. 95% of the money printing is from bank lending out, this lead the demand of USD to pay back the loan--> rolling back the printing. 

But the Euro Dollar bubble historically always  make USD deflation compares to other currencies in the long run as people need USD to pay back the debt and governments tends to manipulate exchange rates to make their products cheaper for exporting and to have USD.  China can no longer have enough USD to roll over USD bonds for many real estates companies and real estates bubble, not gold, is the form of middle class Chinese storing their wealth to. China real-estate bubble is about $55 trillion, twice the size of US real estate equivalent. 

You can check China tech stocks like Alibaba in the last 10 months.  Do you think Xi want to call out for “common prosperity,” in booming time?

It will be interesting times in the next few years, but I am placing my bets on Crypto. 😉

The first signal for USD dropping is the price of US treasuries bond 2y,5y or 10y dropping, with leads to the % yields increasing.  But currently all the yields are  flatted out or even inverse between 10y and 5y.  USD is kind of the measurement standard and I couldn't see any new measurement standard is coming. People speculate it should be back to gold or even bitcoin. But I don't want to bet on it.  As I locked my mortgage interest rate in 15 years, I certainly don't like USD get stronger as I am shorting USD myself and I hold crypto in long run. 

However I have fixed income salary so I don't mind USD is up and the price of goods going down.

I predict most currencies will inflate faster than USD in next few years because there is no currency have a debt bubble as big as USD 's which creates USD demand in the long run. Even if some currency would be favored than USD, it will face the curse of a world reserve currency with trade deficit like the US have. 

I like the cheap and fast transfer from crypto as well, especially blockfi credit card doesn't charge oversea fees, but this only affect Western Union banks and the credit cards issuer at the moment. The crypto currently is in infancy state and more regulations is coming not only from US politicians but from EU, Japan, India, China politicians. They would fight hard to keep their power.

Stable coin like USDT or USDC pegged in USD so it only make USD more in demand.

With USDT there is a risk that they keep secret about the a large proportion Commercial papers which very likely high yield  junk bonds of Chinese corporations and it is worry some as even the big one like Ever Grande defaulted its USD bonds. However it only got into trouble if everyone do the bank run to convert USDT to USD.

Another risk is Fed increases interest rate next year which may make the stocks, real-estate and crypto markets go to bear mod. I am betting crypto on the long run doesn't mean it is not in bubble now.

I  think the African American community is looking for payback against White society.  If the person shot was White, the officer wouldn't be punished to the same extent.  Kyle Rittenhouse was lucky that he shot and killed White people.  If he had shot some Blacks, there would be non stop rioting and he would also be severely punished.

The African community is pushing for reparations for slavery.  As long as they are not getting anything, they will take reparations with their own hands.  Note the recent spate of organized looting in major cities, which you can't describe as looting because that would be racist.  As long as you don't pay reparations there will be lingering paybacks, such as riots, crime, discrimination against Whites, diversity programs which goes against meritocracy, and revision of history.

Mind you, any reparations have to be substantial; if you make token payments, they are not going to be satisfied, and there won't be any healing. Maybe Kamala Harris can be assigned to look into this.  She was in favour of reparations before becoming VP.

Nearly 75% of African Americans support reparations for slavery. Only 15% of white Americans do, a poll says

What about the Irish indentured servants, the Italians, the Chinese workers, the Native Americans? What about those of us who are part Black? Should we get a share? Most African Americans are part White or Hispanic. 

 Biden wants to give $450,000 to every immigrant family that was separated. 

 I think that this is all instigated by the far left including communists and socialist. One of communists and socialists main goals is to divide Americans into factions of all kinds. Blacks, Whites, Asians, Hispanics, native Americans etc. They have taken over our universities and feed this kind of racism while saying that whites are racist that are trying to hold down others. Actually Asians make more money ,on average, than whites do. American Blacks make far more money that Blacks in any other country in the world aside from Jamaica, which is very small. Kamala's father is from Jamaica. 

Obama did more to divide Americans and foment racial problems than any other president in modern times. He sent the FBI to watch over the Ferguson riots so that the police wouldn't enforce the law. Ferguson burned. The perpetrator was totally guilty but the innocent policeman was portrayed as a racist murderer. He is now laying low somewhere in Idaho. This media fed Big Lie was the beginning of Black Lives Matter and all of its trouble making. It is openly socialist, yet many major corporations have given it millions of dollars to leave them alone. Even Dolly Partin gave them a million dollars to protect her entertainment centers.

Sen Cramer: Joe Manchin may have just saved the Democratic Party

North Dakota senator says Manchin's 'no' to Build Back Better benefited the left

In my mind, what's such a great tragedy about it is that a once-great Democratic Party has become this bizarre socialist agenda where they seem to be putting all the chips on the table this year while they have control of the House, the Senate and the White House. And thank God for Joe Manchin and others like him, but especially Joe Manchin, who is trying to save America and in the process may very well save the Democratic Party.

1 Historically Black tribes captured and sold each other for slavery with Arab merchants after Britain banned slave trading in 1 May 1807 . West Africa economies used to boom because of slave trading. 

2 Secondly most of US white nowadays are not descendants of slave owners but poor people from Europe and USA is the land of immigrants in history . Harris is one descendant of a slave owner and a female slave herself, in Jamaica.

3 Lots of African female politicians who are advocating for reparations based on recently refugees or immigrants from Africa, longs after the Civil Wars in the US. Why should they have any reparation?

4 Should any ex colonial  countries asked for reparation from Europe if we use current moral standard to judge the history? 

5 Why should the way teaching Maths in the US change to the easier or better methods if the current Math standard in US college is ways bellow high school level in Asian and Europe countries?  Off course learning STEM or useful skills always a headache because it is how it is in the real world needs for high paying careers: learn how to learn. In Asia countries, learning STEM is the only way to escape poverty. If you cannot success in US with your skills, do you think you can success elsewhere, even in the 3rd World Countries?

5 Why should US mainstream and Woke politicians keep repeating these obvious lies? How much stupid/entitlement do they expect from their voters?

I do believe it is time for this race baiting game to truly be exposed. Frankly it has very little to do with skin tone and everything to do with culture. 

Ive said this many times the US press has lost its way. Sensational headlines take precedence over hard unpopular truths. Below is a very good example of culture divides not racial divides.

You have one race of people exterminating another race of people,” said one African American woman.

“We’ve been invaded,” he said. “There’s no other word for it.”

Come'on man.  This is a commentary from Fox News.  You think they are interested in saving the Democratic party??

Chris Wallace helped harm Trump's chances in the election and never liked him. Now he is moving to more friendly territory. People have seen what the mainstream media is. The relatively very small conservative media is growing rapidly in the news sector. The internet now has several small conservative mini Twitter or Facebook opponents. I post to the most popular sites including Facebook and Twitter. 

Facebook and Twitter outright censored Trump toward the end of the election season. They also blocked any comments regarding Hunter Biden and his laptops, prostitutes, drugs and handgun crime. That censorship was the biggest reason Trump "lost" the election IMHO. 

The January sixth "attack" on the Capitol was a red flag operation by the FBI AKA FIB. The military presence and the giant fence around part of Washington D.C. was a farce. It should never have been approved.
