    Wow. Yet another post you've made illustrating your ignorance of pretty much everything.

    It don't take very many troops to "push down the uprising of students", which doesn't exist.

    You mean like all the micro-bloggers that have been talking about the corruption of the PRC government so much that the CCP had to shut down internet access and now the Chinese people have to talk about such things in code?
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Re: When the dollar crashes, setting off a spireling out of control chain of events,

    If the dollar collapses that would mean the Euro would strengthen, replacing the dollar as world reserve currency. the Yuan won't be trustworthy cause China will just devalue their currency even more even if there's nothing to peg it to, or they'll just peg it to the Euro.
    Of course...but it's not a perfect transition. 60% of all international trade uses the dollar. A collapse of the dollar would mean trillions in global wealth would dissapear for financial companies to international manufactoring companies to international retail companies etc. People will be trying to get rid of dollars as fast as possible and very few would be buying them. So that's a pretty steep drop in global wealth from the collapse and would wreck havoc.

    Of course if the Euro strengthens, then the euro-zone trade deficit will skyrocket. Also, China exports to the US will start to accumulate on their docks cause Americans won't be able to buy them, so they'll dump it on Eurozone/Canada/Australia/1st world countries/etc, accelerating the Euro-zone trade deficit.
    Once again...this doesn't happen in the short term. In the short term you have the consumer of 17% of total global trade face a collapse in their living standard unable to buy foreign goods. The American Financial sector which is tied to banks and companies all over the world would go bankrupt.

    The housing bubble collapse is a little bump to the collapse of the Dollar.
