    Russia is getting old, population shrinking and production shrinking.

  • Singapore Today Is China's Best-Case Scenario [View article]
    Singapore is a city state. China will never be like Singapore. Shanghai will be like Singapore or any other city in China may grow to be like Singapore.
    The best scenario is China will grow to be like the US economically. The US will never be like Singapore.

    AIIB stand for Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank.

    The difference was Japan tried to use guns, China want to use cooperation.
    One use the sticks, the other use carrots.

  • China's Capital Outflow Likely To Continue [View article]
    Chinese do not think the way the west think. Chinese do not think too much is a problem. Too many empty properties is not a problem to the Chinese. Too much capacity is not a problem. Too much output, too much of everything is not a problem.

  • China's Capital Outflow Likely To Continue [View article]
    Canada will have to go with the US, so is Japan.
    UK, Germany, France, Italy, and other know where the future is.
    China will use its $ 4 trillion worth of reserve to expand its influence around the whole world. AIIB is only the start in Asia. Chinese money will move into Africa, L America, Europe and Heaven forbid, N America.
    The Chinese are coming to build, not to destroy.

  • Signs Of Spring In China? [View article]
    The appreciation of the Yen killed the Japanese economy in 1989-1990.
    China has a handle on the Yuan. China is not losing its competitiveness as Japan did.
    In the next decade or two, the demand of Chinese finance will be as much as Chinese products. The demand of Chinese finance of infrastructure in not only Asia but Africa, L America, and even Europe and he US.
    Chinese over seas investment will explode which may not show up in Chinese GDP growth but will make China richer and healthier economically.

  • The Next Currency Set To Fail [View article]
    The US and Japan will not be able to prevent China from rising any more than they can prevent themselves from declining.
    The acceptance of AIIB is a small glimpse of what is happening in the world.
    For the future, military power will not save the US-Japan alliance. Over spending by the US on the military may even be the demise of the US.
    US military power will not be effective against big countries. It is not even effective against small countries.
    Economic power will rule the world at least for this century. Countries joining AIIB are making bets that construction will win over destruction.

    AIIB is only the beginning. There maybe a Africa Infrastructure investment bank soon and a S America Infrastructure investment bank to follow.

    If the US is unhappy about AIIB, it will be furious when China initiate a WIIB, World Infrastructure investment bank. But many other countries will be very happy.

    The US can start a PAIIB, Pan America Infrastructure Investment Bank or a WIIB, World Infrastructure Investment Bank. I think they will be as popular as AIIB. Even China will want to be part of them if not excluded.

    If the US reduce its military budget by 50% and spend the money on infrastructure, all its infrastructure problem will be gone.
    Even at 50%, the US military budget would be as big as the combined Russian and Chinese military budgets together.
