  • Why I Am Short The U.S. Solar Industry [View article]
    We do not have any bright ideas, if we did, our economy would not be in such bad shape. The US let the market control its economy, unlike the Chinese, the Chinese control its economy.

    Afghanistan and Iraq are the testing grounds for the US military industry. The US military industry take the same importance as the Chinese construction industry.

    China's subsidy for its solar industry amount to less than 5% of US military spending. Is it not a shame the US can not come up with such a small amount to keep its solar industry alive? But as I said, let the Chinese come up with the technology, we can steal the result!

  • Can Gold Be Debased? [View article]
    China is printing Yuan as fast as the US is printing $ with one exception. The Yuan goes into investments while the $ goes into consumption. Is there a difference? Big difference, China produce 20-25 million jobs annually with its investments. The US produce jobs too, jobs in China and other countries.

  • Can Gold Be Debased? [View article]
    NO, NO, NO, there is not enough gold in the world for gold to be debased. The US has more gold then the next 3 countries, which is a little more than 8000 tons. If the US release all its gold in the market, China can swallow the whole lot without chewing. China's $ 3.2 trillion reserve can buy all the reserved gold in the world. You can not mine gold fast enough and you can not print the metal gold.

  • How Low Could Gold Go? [View article]
    If the US can get its act together, gold can go as low as $ 1000 or lower. The question is can the US get its act together? I do not see the US is moving in the right direction anytime soon. I am betting gold will hit $ 2500 before $ 1000.

    Solar energy is energy of the future. It maybe 3,4, or 5 years before solar energy can stand on its own feet. The US does not have that kind of money to keep it going for that long. But China does. Maybe we wait for China to develop the technology and we can steal them.

  • More Signs A China Cool-Off Is Coming [View article]
    Is China going to have a hard or soft landing? China has no desire to land anytime soon. China will slow down as its economy matures. China is planning for a "circular" economy for the long term. The Chinese population will continue to grow in spite of its one-child policy until about 2025. When the Chinese population no longer grow, China's need for economic growth will no longer be needed. China want to maintain as a "sufficient" country. China's goal is for the Chinese people to have a happy and peaceful life. The life Confucius want the people to have 2500 years ago.

  • More Signs A China Cool-Off Is Coming [View article]
    Does China have a longer plan beyond 2020? Yes China has a plan up to 2047. In 1997, when Hong Kong was returned to China by the British, China promised to let Hong Kong run its own affairs for 50 years. 50 years from 1997 will be 2047. China plan to be like Hong Kong by 2047.

  • More Signs A China Cool-Off Is Coming [View article]
    China is cooling off? Is 9.5% growth cooling off? I guess it is cooling off compared to 10.3 % growth in 2010. China will continue to " cool" for the foreseeable future. If Chinese growth slow to 8.5-9% for 2012, 8-8.5% for 2013, 7.5-8% for 2014, and 7-7.5% for 2015. Then, China will call its planning a success. After 2015, expect China to continue cooling to 4.5-5% growth by 2020. By that time China will have an economy about the same size as the US or Europe.
    This is an ideal situation. Will China's development this smooth? Probably not. China will encounter difficulties along the way. China will try its best to solve each of them.

  • Will Plummeting Copper Prices Really Slow Emerging Markets? [View article]
    China drove the prices of commodities up. Now that China is trying to slow down, prices come down. But a lower price will encourage China to buy more again. The cycle will continue.

  • Europe Plan In Works Is A Game Changer [View article]
    For monetary union to work, EU need a political union. Something like the United States of America. But that is very unlikely to happen anytime soon.
