Let me explain the long and mind intricacies of finance and commerce to you, for they are beyond the ken of the common layman.

"You got a lot of stuff, we want your stuff."

"You guys sell a lot of stuff, make your stuff here for cheap so the people running the sweatshops can buy Maseratis."

"You got a lot of stuff to make stuff out of.  Take these plastic beads and shiny objects in exchange for letting us occupy the place with all that stuff."

There.

See?

And you thought economics was difficult.

miniflea: wildcardjack: Historically China has had a tendency to rise up, bureaucratize, and stagnate under a tyranny of the mandarinate. Then something goes to shiat, regions fracture, a little war with lots of innovation, then a new central authority rises, establishes a new mandarinate, and the whole thing starts over again.

The weird factor was when the latest mandarinate threw up their hands and said "go ahead and trade with the capitalists, we won't tell you how to do things".

I read something once about a theory that Europe emerged as dominant because they had a relatively even distribution of powers. No single state was able to suppress new ideas or technology if there was any military benefit. There was also something there about how having a largeish island nation helps, as it makes it much more difficult for a Napoleon or a Hitler from completely taking over.

Wish I could remember where I read that.


Hypothesis.

Guns, germs, and steel.

What you don't often hear about the "OMG JAPAN" era is how American businessmen ripped them the fark off.  The Japanese were so eager to buy up properties and franchises that they would pay damn near anything.  Sony in particular was ripped off when they bought Columbia Pictures.  I don't know if they same thing is happening now, but given how the Wall Street investment banks fleeced the German banks during the subprime bust, it wouldn't surprise me at all if American businessmen are taking advantage of newly rich Chinese who have no experience with capitalism.  We may not do many things well anymore, but no one does vulture capitalism like the United States.

you can sell off the naming rights to every stadium and arena, sell off as many landmark buildings as they will buy, sooner or later you'll be selling off your country. usa corporations gladly put americans into unemployment sending jobs overseas for many years now. you think they give a damn if you and your kids starve in the cold? suck it, taxpayers. casinos for the Chinamen, money for the politicians.

Wait, I thought conservatives were all about getting government out of the way so job creators could do what they want.  Tell me, Fox News, what should I believe?

Good times. Good times.

MFAWG: Remember when the Japanese were going to take everything over because they bought Pebble Beach Golf Course and built a resort hotel? Good times, my friends.

Anyone think China would allow Little America to be built outside of Beijing?

I DIDN'T THINK SO!!

China is quietly taking over America and THIS MUST BE STOPPED.
They're buying up Cali like crazy!!
It is the QUIET takeover that will bite us in the ass.
