The United States are growing faster than China

The world`s biggest economy is the United States followed by China, and sooner or later, China will replace the locomotive and be the biggest economy in the world. You can delay it, but it will happen in this century anyway.

They are both in conflict with each other with tariff tensions and a trade war. A strategy that is bad for both of them in the long run. The U.S is waiting for China to come to the table and make a fair deal. Today is the first day of talks to renegotiate the trade dispute between them. A deal that President Donald Trump repudiated.

Take a look at the chart above. Surprisingly, the U.S is more productive than China. Twice as much. The US economy advanced an annualized 3,4 percent on quarter in the third quarter of 2018 while the Chinese economy grew by “only” 1,6 percent quarter-on-quarter in the three months to September last year.

The Chinese economy is slowing and this has been going on for a while. But it`s not because of the trade war. China obviously have some problems and the China-U.S tension is one of them, but this is not the first time China and the U.S are in conflict with each other.

Deng Xiaoping and President Jimmy Carter signed a historic accord in 1979 and then reversed decades of China-U.S tension. Deng Xiaoping was a Chinese revolutionary and veteran of the Communist Party and he was eager to adopt capitalist methods and reforms in order to stimulate economic growth and restore confidence in the party.

Today, China has embraced capitalism but remains Leninist at heart. The founder of the Soviet Union, and his Bolshevik revolution, Vladimir Lenin changed China`s economic and political landscape.

Lenins Russian revolution in 1917 have a causal relationship with the birth of Chinas Communist Party in 1921 and the founding of the People`s Republic of China in 1949. As Mao Zedong once said: “The salvoes of the October revolution brought Marxism-Leninism to China.”

Lenin has played a much bigger role in China than Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. The wholesale execution of enemies inspired Mao`brutal dictatorship and his launch of the Cultural Revolution under the theory of “continuous revolution under the dictatorship of the proletariat.”

Now, China has changed dramatically since Deng Xiaopings free-market reforms and Maos terrifying Leninist experiment in utopia. Now, China is the world`s second largest economy. 70 percent of the “socialist” economy is privately owned and nobody have more billionaires than China right now.

China is more a Leninist capitalist state than a Marxist socialist one. 800 million people in the middle class has jumped on the consumerism train in only a couple of decades under the stewardship of communist totalitarianism. Leninism`s lasting legacy.

On the other side, China has a debt crisis and a real estate bubble, so the question is; when will China collapse, and will it cause a global crisis? China is declining and it will continue to do so. Lending money to Kenya or Venezuela to name a few, are putting them all in a debt trap and it remain to see that Beijing can afford it. I`m in doubt.

Xi Jinping and his leaders know that they are in a very weak position, so they have to come to the table and make a deal with the U.S.

The stock market is in a correction territory at the moment. Investors have priced in two rate hikes this year and some U.S-China tension fear, but Trump reports “Big Progress” in trade talks with China were top trained negotiators came to the table earlier today.

50% voted for Donald J Trump. Are 50% of the American people stupid? What we know is that people are angry, and that is why many of them voted for Trump. Trump said in his speech last night that this is a movement.

He called CNN for «fake news». He is attacking CIA and are against the establishment. This is something that remind us about John F Kennedy. When we look at the history, we know that Donald J Trump have to be very careful. He can be assassinated.

John F Kennedy talked about the same group of people. He was referring to a shadow government, and in one of his speeches he said:

«We are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tight net highly efficient machine that combines military diplomatic intelligence economic scientific and political operations.

Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised».

John F Kennedy talked about the secret society which is the same group of people Donald J Trump talks about. The secret society has no traditions or any religion, and they own the media as it is today.

John F Kennedy was assassinated 22 November 1963 in Dallas, Texas, but he is not the only one. William McKinley was assassinated 14 September 1901, six month into his second term. There is something scary here. Take a good look at the scheme below.

 

President nr 25 William McKinley Assassinated

President nr 35 John F Kennedy Assassinated

President nr 45 Donald J Trump ?

 

Abraham Lincoln was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth on Good friday, April 14, 1865. He was the 16th president of the United States. Lincoln was a religious skeptic, and he was a classical liberal democrat. An enemy of artificial hierarchy, a friend to trade and business as ennobling and enabling, and an American counterpart to Mill, Cobden, and Bright.

In surveys of U.S scholars ranking presidents conducted since the 1940`s, Lincoln is consistently ranked in the top three, often as number one. In presidential ranking polls conducted in the United States since 1948, Lincoln has been rated at the very top in the majority of polls.

President Lincolns assassanation increased his status to the point of making him a national martyr. Lincoln was viewed by abolitionists as a champion for human liberty. Republicans linked Lincolns name to their party, and many consider him to a man of outstanding ability. We also know John F Kennedy`s popularity, and he will never be forgotten. What about Donald J Trump? Will he fail and be forgotten?
