    As long as other countries accept US$, the US does not have to be competitive. Will they stop accepting the $ some day?

    Another political concern in China is how to face a stronger US present in Asia. With that present, Japan is enforcing the claim of some uninhabited islands that are claimed by Taiwan, Japan, and China.
    The question is should China continue to concentrate on economic development and spend the minimal on defense? We knew what happened to the former USSR when it tried to match the US in an arms race. Will China do the same? Or is China different?

    You will never find out who is winning until the battle is over. The young today are not as easily manipulated as it was 45 years ago. No cultural revolution, please. I think the choice is whether China should concentrate more on its own development, or open more to the rest of the world.

    If China were building more than 16 million homes a year, maybe that was why the government want to put a stop to it.

    Political infighting happen in China all the time, specially in a year where there will be a change in leadership. There will very unlikely be a civil war, but if the new leaders want to change direction, all bets are off.

  • Why Power Plants Will Power Natural Gas Higher [View article]
    We will not convert cars and trucks to NG until there are filling stations, there will not be filling stations until there are more cars and trucks use NG.
    Which come first? The chicken or the egg?

    There are only Rep and Dem, and both of them are for oil companies rather than the people. Can the people fire both of them?

    The Us would not sell natural gas, would not sell high tech to countries like China. Any wonder why the US has a huge trade deficit?

    Many established developers, the ones in business for a few years, made truckloads of money the last few years. Most of their inventories are debt free. They are not going to give their properties away. The demand of better housing among Chinese has not stop. Once people realize prices may not drop too far, they will jump back into the market.
    How long will it take? Faster than you think, no more than a few months.

  • Thursday's Commodity News To Trade On [View article]
    I thought the US and EU want to reduce their trade deficit with China. And they are complaining that China not sell them enough? I do not know about EU, but the US has 50% as much REE as China, should the US not create a few jobs mining and process the stuff?
