It would drive the dollar down and that will bring a lot of manufacturing to the US and create many jobs.

They should know that naming China as a currency-manipulator would bring no advantages to an already weakened US economy. While the US is China’s biggest market, China exports large amounts of goods to other places like Australia who might not be so willing to co-operate against China. In the end, this trade war will only hurt American firms trying to push into China. And dumping bonds is not actually hollow, its real and happening. Other countries no longer have the financial means to buy our bonds, most governments are in tonnes of debt after the bailout and stimulation programs

“… our currency will become worthless”

Don’t worry. It’s still worth 6.828 Yuan. It’s only gone down by 20% in the last 5 years! We are safe.

Other nations would quickly snap them up or, if they didn’t, the Federal Reserve would. After all, in just the last year, the Federal Reserve bought more treasuries than all of China’s holdings. They could easily do it again.

They sell us lead-tainted toys and we give them worthless pieces of paper. Sounds like a fair trade to me.

it’s the only game left after the monopolies grab up all they can, dump all their workers, and get all tied up in bogus securities.

watch out people…we can all get hurt real bad on this one.

no watchman at the helm. and even if there were, who watches the watchmen?

Our economy could grind to a halt (already happening), our currency will become worthless and we will have no tax revenues to fund our government. If China won’t play fair, why should we?

They hold too much of our debt and they are slowly selling off their holdings each month. The more we chide them the more hardened they will become. We put our selves into that position with this crazy borrowing and it will come back to haunt us. Interest rates will rise sooner than expected if they keep on selling.
