When (not if) China blows up what are the consequences?

It’s coming.  No doubt.

But what are the consequences?

A lower $A.  A housing bust in Australia.

I’ve been waiting for the next 2008.  It’s gotta come.  With the system we have it’s inevitable every 5 years or so.  So we’re overdue.

Looks like China is going to be the “blow up” candidate this time around.



Ayn Rand

OK, she was a little kooky and doctrinaire, but she had insights and was a clear thinker.  To quote Ayn Rand:

When you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men
who produce nothing; when you see that money is flowing to those who deal not in
goods, but in favors; when you see that men get rich more easily by graft than
by work, and your laws no longer protect you against them, but protect them
against you, you may know that your society is doomed.

We are DOOMED.
