Yes, China does;
No, China doesn't;
There is no need, as they employ a positive current account balance, and a massively negative financial account balance. Current account + financial account = ???? Maximus JKChina doesnt sell their reserves to the US, nor anyone. They could, but they dont.
Not Chinas fault the US is selling all that reserve and are over consuming.
Your opinion of over consuming is unnecessary. They require the US to have a negative trade balance in order to fuel their export machine. The US stops consuming and China goes to ****.
What is the meaning of this comment? I suppose a clean floating system would be more "fair", however this would require all nations to implement completely privatized central banking institutions. All or nothing, otherwise those who "mingle" will have a serious advantage over those who do not.Just because most people jumps of a cliff dont mean everyone have to.
Dead wrong once again, and not a surprise. We can clearly see the impact of the US dirty floating. The value of the dollar is decreasing, forcing China to further devalue their Yuan relative to non dollar pairs (putting tremendous downward pressure on the Renminbi). This drastically reduces China's marginal propensity to import, which drastically reduces their peoples standard of living.Like the US does the same with imports.
Oh Max.... I would never think of you as an expert of FOREX. Maybe an expert in hating the US, but of anything that revolves around finance, economics, politics, etc... no you are not an expert. Your posts are a testamentWhat? Never said I was an expert on forex. I just said my opinion. And it being so much more correct than your at the time, must have made you think I am an expert.
It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

Secondly, they use their state banks and subsidies to affect our currency and the valuation of theirs. They do it on purpose, fine but I have no problem then with a floating tariff to offset their monkeying.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

I can understand your concern about personal attacks. What I don't understand is your tolerance of racism. My wife is Chinese. The blood of the Han flows through the veins of my sons.
I will not tolerate any reference to "Chinaman" in any forum in which I participate. DP's willingness to tolerate racism means there is no place for me here. Forget about the imposition of an infraction. Clean up your act. Farewell.
- [The abductors] are inhuman. Their car drove up to that place [where I was] and two people dragged me by the hair and put me into the car. My two hands were tied up and I couldn't move. Then [after arriving back in Jiangsu] they put me inside a room where there were two women who stripped me of my clothes... [and] beat my head [and] used their feet to stomp my body
The guard fled after the rape, witnesses said. About 50 detainees, including the student, broke through the wooden door and ran away Tuesday morning (August 4, 2009), taking two bloody sheets with them as evidence of the assault. About 10 (of the detainees) went to the local police station to report the rape, but say they were ignored.
I asked why they were detaining me, and as a group [the guards] came in and punched and kicked me and said they wanted to kill me. I loudly cried for help and they stopped, but from then on, I didn't dare [risk another beating].

Amnesty International has documented widespread human rights violations in China. An estimated 500,000 people are currently enduring punitive detention without charge or trial, and millions are unable to access the legal system to seek redress for their grievances. Harassment, surveillance, house arrest, and imprisonment of human rights defenders are on the rise, and censorship of the Internet and other media has grown. Repression of minority groups, including Tibetans, Uighurs and Mongolians, and of Falun Gong practitioners and Christians who practice their religion outside state-sanctioned churches continues. While the recent reinstatement of Supreme People's Court review of death penalty cases may result in lower numbers of executions, China remains the leading executioner in the world.

Another thing, that person might simply be ignorant that the term might offend a person, to be honest. We have speakers of many languages and perhaps that is the best translation they could make, who knows?
However, there is a more important point that you and DP have missed. The racist used the phrase "the average Chinaman." While some forum members may have missed the racist innuendo of the phrase you can rest assured that the DP Mods are not ignorant of the racist connotation.
What did the Mods do about the expression of racism in question? They did nothing other than tolerate it. This is why there is no room for me here.
Now, don't respond to me or invoke my moniker, or I'll come back with a further critique.
Critique of me or the issue that you feel is evident? What should the person have said, Chinese Person? Chinese Man?

It is "usually" offensive. Not always, but Usually... Chinaman is not Nigger or Slope or Chink or Spick or Spook or Coon or Cracker or anywere near what most people would consider racist. I am not defending the term, just your rage over it might be a tad bit misplaced. Just think about it...
