Chris, you rashly assume that I'm advocating what is merely among the wide range of possibilities. I'm not advocating, I'm just saying many paths are possible, many outcomes are possible, and the talk confusing balance of payments with the sky is falling, is simply confusion fomented by pseudoscientists who really have very little idea of what they are dealing with.
The US balance of trade with China, and indeed the world, is regulated by tariffs and treaties made by the US government. Which in turn is made by the US people. Can't balme it on the Chinese, the President, or on Congress. The blame lies fully on "We The People" and you really have to ask, did the founders ever intend to give the vote to every moron who could find their way to a voting both.
Of course it could be worse, I'm told that in Oz if you are a registered voter and you fail to vote, you'll get a summons in the mail fining you for that.
