New roads, new airports, new freight and passenger rail lines ... it's all just a secret plot aimed at obtaining USD balances :-)

China uses money for development while the US uses money for war.

Six,

Pro Tip: "Global TRADE Empire"

So Matt, do you agree with Mosler that imports are a positive and exports are a negative or are you more aligned with China on this issue?

Matt Franko said...

No I don't agree with that ... I think we should disallow all net foreign claims...

I think we should disallow all net foreign claims.

Then the US would have to allow Chinese to buy what they want to buy, and the US won't do that for two reasons.

First is the matter of security, putting technology off limits as well as US assets that are determined to be strategic or would otherwise threaten the US in some way.

The second is the perception that China is buying up American and is soon to take over. Look at the controversy over China buying Smithfield Ham, for instance.

Matthew Franko said...

Well they could just buy the ham... not the whole f-ing Virginia HQed company...

Oh wait but then they would get ham and not USDs....

Cant feed the sicko USD zombies with ham Tom... that is not what they want...

When they bought the Virginia HQed company, they parted with USD balances.

Tom Hickey said...

China used USD accumulated from trade to acquire Smithfield in order to ship choice hams to China where pork is like steak in the US.

They spent those USD in the US, increasing Chinese FDI.

That way, they spend the USD once and get the benefits of the exports of Smithfield to China.

This is the way that trade is supposed to work. Win-win.

Tom Hickey said...

IIRC, Dubya brushed off the trade deficit with China based on US earnings from US FDI in China that offset.

Matthew Franko said...

US shares are even BETTER than USDs to these sickos... probably like the zombie that gets the liver....

What the hell business is it of the China govt to buy a Virginia ham and bacon producer?

Just buy the ham for crying out loud...

Why dont they just buy the Boeing aircraft?

Japan: Over $1T USD balances sitting there and they dont even have a heavy lift helo to fly in a backup diesel generator and fuel bladders to run some pumps at Fukishima so they prefer to let their own people glow in the dark rather than buy a PRODUCT with any of their USD balances... too busy being Primary Dealers of US Treasury securities and making EVEN MORE USDs to care... this is textbook zombie behavior 101....

What the hell is wrong with these USD zombie nations?????

USD Zombie hall of shame:
