This is what happens when you lend, borrow, and spend. It maybe increase growth, in number, but also debt, in actuality. Trying to tackle that debt means more lending, and the whole thing reverses.

Generally, however, if a company can't survive without being funded by debt they can't repay, then they should go bankrupt. Government need to stop bailing out private corporations.

I meant, "Trying to tackle that debt means no more lending and the whole thing reverses."

The BIG question is who falls first Japan or China. They are both in the same boat.

I really think Trump had nothing to do with this, but conveniently the Chinese government can use him as a scapegoat.

The BIG question is who falls first Japan or China. They are both in the same boat.

The Japanese economy has been trading sideways since the great property crash in the early 1990's, China is gonna be a different case they whole empty cities, massive debt, economy that relies on exports, tariff's being introduced on their products and a Chinese population that have seen trouble on the horizon and have started saving even more taking even more money out of the economy.

No, he does. The trade war between China and USA definately play a part. It may not be a big part but it does have some impacts. It is true though the Chinese goverment will blame him for all the bad things happen.

Scapegoat? They won't credit any American with torpedoing their economy obviously, especially as this was kind of the entire idea behind the tariffs.
