    Well trade more with emerging economies instead of the U.S.. We trade too much with you, if your economy sinks so does ours, we need to trade with others so that when your economy sucks it minimally affect ours.

    only the fringe, but they get some media play. The serious guys all recommend expanding our trading base, just like every other country on the planet.

    You guys have made us lazy and takers of your money for decades.

They could brush us off for a few years and absolutely devastate our economy. Not only is it bad economics, its being a bad ally and friend.

    Much as we might dislike american conceit and arrogance, I for one am damn glad that the world's superpower is America. I don't think we'd like it if it was china or India or russia. I remember the cold war and the bad good guys won over the evil bad guys - best of outcomes imho.
    We rely too much on America, our economy should not depend on America. They don't do anything for us besides drag us into wars.

    That's the conclusion I've come to. Some people are such doofuses.

    Welcome to the club. Many countries are entirely too dependent on America for their own well-being.

    it' a generally good trading relationship for both of us ( with the normal ups and downs)... I hope the fringes don't get all bat**** crazy and do something stupid.

    Is it "doofuses" or "dufi"?

    I've never known for sure.

    well, go ahead and become dependent on China then...I'm sure you can convince the rest of your country to stop selling stuff to the US.
