Um artigo sobre o MAD Financeiro - a Guerra-em-Banho-Maria entre os Estados Unidos e a China.
«Beijing's growing dollar hoard represents the most dangerous imbalance in today's global economy. The United States is both importing heavily from China and borrowing heavily from the country to finance those purchases, pushing the dollar down and putting the two economic superpowers on a collision course. Washington politicians demand that Beijing raise the value of the yuan against the dollar, and Chinese officials have hinted that if pushed too hard they might shift their near-trillion-dollar reserve out of U.S. Treasury bonds, which could trigger a U.S. and global recession. The main thing preventing this confrontation is the fact that both sides have too much to lose. Former U.S. Treasury secretary Lawrence Summers once called this "the balance of financial terror."»
Duas breves notas:
1. A Internacional Especuladora vai, muito provavelmente, tentar fazer ao "dragão asiático" o mesmo que fez aos tigres.
2. Acho que os chineses andam a ser comidos: fornecem bens de consumo e recebem "dinheiro de monopoly" em troca.
