Comments on: Don’t Bet on China: Redux Property - Prosperity - Peace Sat, 09 May 2015 08:06:55 +0000 hourly 1 By: IDon'tVote Mon, 08 Oct 2012 06:40:21 +0000 I think the question of whether China is ‘good’ for you depends on what you do. There is a lot of money that can be made there that can’t be made in the U.S.A. But it’s certainly no libertarian Valhalla. The advantage it has, largely shared with early America, is a fairly small government-to-population ratio. But, as we know, that can grow terrifyingly fast; especially when people are being normal oblivious/emotional herd animals.

As to China, it will inevitably suffer the same fate as any Nation blessed with enormous resources of the mind and land. A few leading families with short time horizons, the passionate lust for power of legions aligned with and against those families, and the great numbing clamoring of masses demanding “security” of person, wealth, status and whatever else, will all combine to bring less “security,” less “stability” and more unrest.

The clearest expression of China’s desire to join Europe as a dying continent is its one-child policy. To openly seek the extermination by attrition of its own is the first step. Seriously, only in Europe, upper class America and China is it considered cool to curse the blessing of kids.

I have to admit I can’t blame the elites of China for buying into mercantalist and keynesian crap. Afterall, that’s the course de jure at all the major prestigious american universities. Inflate your way to wealth! Rapidly reproducing currencies combined with rapidly declining population will lead to nirvana! Hooray. Good thing we sent Juan Jr. to study at Harvard!
