The "Trump Lied" meme assumes that he is in charge now.


What does that mean, to be polite and ask?

I would say that's just wishful thinking now. China is too powerful to allow US manipulation of the global market in a way that can harm China's economy. The US would have to do harm to itself in order to accomplish that.

In any case, if we had a section for predictions, this one could be recorded there. Admin???

It's pretty funny how you realize with us that we would have to harm ourselves to harm China, yet you're completely oblivious to the reverse ...

A point worth comment. No, not at all. I'm fully aware that China is taking a completely non-confrontational stance to the US, and will likely continue to do so.

With the exception of China stating that which it considers it'r rights on building new islands.

Think a little before making silly comments. You'll be ignored for the silly stuff but I will reply to something worth a reply.

Huh

China is non confrontational.  You do love you some Communists ...

You really want to call for silly people to be removed from the board?

You think sane people are hoping that the Chinese Communists will crash their "planned crony economy" on purpose? Because...? Cheesy What? China's economic collapse can be quarantined by smart Central Bankers so as not to go viral?Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

Which ones do you think have it figured out?

How will it effect my portfolio? Should I get into Eastern Europe? Is there a guarantee of no danger from some sort of resurgent Soviet Empire? Can Poland protect itself against Russia? Would anybody go to help them? (Historically speaking, no. Everybody will look the other way if Russia and Germany decide to divide up Poland again.)

I'd like to get in on that, but not to exclude silly people (silly people are often fun!) only to exclude silly ideas!

And since I'm an expert on silly ideas, having had more of them than any living person with the same name as me who was born on the same day etc... I will decide which ideas are silly, and I will censor them before they are posted.

It will make everything easier if everybody here has the same ideas, and none of them are silly.

I bet the site would get some sorts of awards for that... Cry Cry Cry Cry Cry

The only part of all that worth commenting on is Germany and Russia dividing up Poland. And that's even off topic.

You're safe in assuming there won't be another rise of the Soviet Union. And you're also safe financially in understanding that Russia has gained immunity from US sanctions.

If you can connect that to your portfolio then go for it.

Have you commented on it somewhere that I can go and read your comments? ShockedNo?

What a big surprise to everyone. (Is there one of theseĀ  Cheesy that is a big yawn?)
