Better get my umbrella out? The trickle down effect will be the heaviest in 4 years! Probably not.

The world needs to understand that your economy is being high jacked by China much like smoking cigarettes is to making you addicted to them. The world needs to understand that if you let China purchase from you and create a system of addiction to their purchasing power, sooner or later you will face the harsh reality that your country will be controlled by them in more ways than one. Every country needs to wake up to this selling and purchasing from many different countries [diversify] including your own country. By enabling China to purchase from your country as a #1 buyer, you are creating a China that will flip on you as they have flipped on Africa and other countries as well. And this goes for buying from them due to inexpensive prices. Do we really want to go down this path?
