I try to look at cause, within effect, because we live in a 'cause & effect' reality. That is if I find the brick of cheese somewhat smaller, and one end has gnawing teeth marks, I sniff for the charateristic smell of King Rat.
Scenario: American industry decimated, insane financial picture where banks, despite huge infusions of cold, hard cash, still adamantly refuse to extend credit & loans. Preparations made to force America to accept 100's of 1,000's of illegal aliens as new legal citizens, further undermining the economic sector and citizen's jobs.
A former building to wealth, power & control of Communist China, with carloads of cutting edge manufacturing technology exported there to support America's foreign manufacturing investment. An unlimited Chinese workforce that under Communism may be forced to work for any or no wage.
China becoming the chief bond holder of America's long term wealth, able to exert extreme pressure. American auto industry taken over by government, which gets more Socialist/Communist by the day, who also controls banks.
What I expect is for China to suddenly leap forward with all 4 feet and to introduce several automobiles & trucks, at prices no other manufacturer in the world can compete with, and entirely overwhelm the market.
Because the economy is torpedoed, American manufacturers are slammed, folks can't find high paying jobs but still need transportation: TOTAL SUCCESS for CHINA-MOBILE INC.
