The next round of U.S.-Chinese trade talks ended this week in Washington to no avail.
Media wheezing that “collapsed the financial markets in the United States.” In the financial world began a cautious, but panic.
It rattle — I picked the right metaphor, because muffled from the horror of the throat, barely missing sounds. The economy is a sacred grove of capitalism, and if in the grove, the leaves fall, appear dry twigs, how she hadn’t disappeared, followed by the owners of the sacred groves.
United States in the face of a splintery old guy Donald trump has promised that in the autumn to impose duties of 10% on Chinese goods worth $350 billion In addition to those duties, which the US has imposed against China.
Because the United States has already imposed duties of 25% on Chinese goods worth $200 billion
China responded rather political statement that it will continue to buy Iranian oil defying US sanctions against Iran. The fact that completely forbade the business to buy U.S. agricultural products. Although they are without banning bought sluggish. After all, the obligation to buy U.S. agricultural products hanged on China as dues.
Well, China said the U.S. increased tariffs on American goods by 25%, 20% and 10%. However, so far totaling $60 billion
And most importantly, China dramatically devalued the yuan. The cost of the yuan as the result came down to the psychological mark below seven yuan to the dollar. The Chinese currency is called, has burst and dragged behind the US stock markets.
I won’t bore readers multiple listings, but at least for example the well-known brands (what happened to them in the first day): shares NASDAQ fell 4.5 percent, Apple’s shares — 4%, IBM’s stock by 5%. On the first day! Subsequently, the world froze in anticipation of even greater falls. Markets argue that the decline will continue. That is adesivi unprecedentedly its national currency, China has caused significant financial damage to the United States. Lost all the money, even the super-rich (Amazon) Bezos has lost a few billion.
In response, trump said: “the Fall of the yuan — an attempt to manipulate the exchange rate of the Chinese currency”.
Here it should be clarified that the law on currency manipulation adopted in the United States in 1988. This is an economic crime in the United States. For all time the law on currency manipulation were used against South Korea, Taiwan and all of China (in the 1990-ies).
The economic war, just entered the hot phase, is hiding political strife for life and death.
China challenged the hegemony of the United States, and now like two terrible monster, they strike each other blows carcasses, tails and fins. Russia is a brooding giant squid swims nearby, ready to grab. But who… In uncle Sam now…
China in response to the accusation of manipulating its currency modestly and thin-lipped said: “the yuan exchange Rate matches the state of the Chinese economy,” and fell silent. Sort of behavior at all in the style of China. They behaved for centuries, if not millennia. In fact, Asian Protestants, the Chinese are terse, they are not ranting. Know and do their business.
My personal opinion: trump clumsy. He’s clumsy, because cocky. He overestimates the power of the state, including economic. No state to resist the rest of the world. Trump could not,, in fact, arrogant and not tried to prevent the Alliance of China with Russia, even may not understand all risky for the United States the importance of the Russian-Chinese Alliance.
But, of course, looks even more ominous for the United States of Chinese-Islamic Union. And he is in our eyes.
Focusing on the convergence of the sick and the outdated Saudi Arabia, with an equally outdated Gulf Emirates, and, Yes, arrogant, but a small Israel, the US forgot that croaked since 1993 prophetic Raven — Harvard Professor and founder of Foreign Affairs magazine by Samuel Huntington in his article and then book “the Clash of civilizations.”
And he croaked that the Chinese-Islamic connection will bury Western civilization — the West and the United States of America. (Russia, India and Japan Huntington has referred to as a “swinging civilizations”, is able to join and to China and to the West.) Today we see how cleverly the Chinese Confucians managed to rake to his allies — Iran and Pakistan are among them.
So, joining the customs (allegedly economic) battle with China, the US, in fact, entered into a desperate fight for to be or not to be then political hegemony in the world.
My opinion is that not be.
Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Israel ridiculous, but the only allies at the moment.
While China (“Confucian civilization” in the terminology of Huntington) have got friends-monsters, among which and Russia.
Huntington died in 2008 at the age of 81 years. However, “a number of forecasts of Huntington has received to date is very impressive confirmation” attest “Wikipedia”.
Yes, we do see with my own eyes.
