Signs of China Crashing (look out Vancouver)
Robert Wenzel at the economicpolicyjournal.com is reporting that the Chinese economy is in decline.
"A large part of Chinese "growth" was centrally planned make work projects for which there is no consumer demand. They were vanity projects of local Chinese officials. This was all financed with massive central bank money printing.
This will all crash.
There are pockets of free market operations in China, but not enough."
History, Charts & Curated Readings
"History, real solemn history, I cannot be interested in.... I read it a little as a duty; but it tells me nothing that does not either vex or weary me. The quarrels of popes and kings, with wars and pestilences in every page; the men all so good for nothing, and hardly any women at all - it is very tiresome." Jane Austen spoken by Catherine Morland in 'Northanger Abbey'
"Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement; and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." George Santayana Vol. I, Reason in Common Sense
