If you have not noticed, ever since the HK protests started, there are now protests all over the world. A couple hundred protesters in Iraq have died in just the last couple of days. What China is doing is more dangerous than it appears. Of course, it won't affect the US because the US ecomomy doesn't depend on China. It’s the other way round, China needs the US to keep tens of millions of workers employed. There is a huge property bubble in HK and an even bigger one in China. If this blows, all hell will break lose because the HKD and RMB will devalue and nothing can stop it from happening, not even if the trade war ends immediately. I’ve been warning about this since early this year, before the HK protests started, and everything which I fear is happening. The trade war is only “noise” and a reaction to future risks, and the real crisis is the social economic situation in China/HK has become untenable.
