De gigantische explosie in Tianjin, een havenstad dicht bij Peking, heeft niet alleen ruim 100 doden gekost, maar ook een groot gat achtergelaten in de grond. Omdat China de dag daarvoor de Yuan had gedevalueerd, wordt er op sommige websites heftig gespeculeerd over een aanval van de VS op China. De ramp in Tianjin zou zijn veroorzaakt door een Amerikaanse bom, de “Rod of God” die werd afgevuurd vanuit de ruimte. Het zou een “waarschuwingsschot” zijn om te voorkomen dat China een economische oorlog begint tegen de VS. Deze verklaring lijkt echter zeer onwaarschijnlijk!

Allereerst de devaluatie: deze was zeer gering en niet gericht tegen de dollar, maar om een beetje in de pas te blijven met de veel sterkere waardedaling van de valuta in de omringende landen. Voor de VS is die devaluatie inderdaad ongunstig, maar de dollar lijkt zwaar overgewaardeerd, dus producten uit de VS zijn toch al veel te duur. De economie van China is gebaseerd op productie, die van de VS op consumptie en speculatie! Maar de productie in China levert in China slechts weinig op, de winsten zijn voor de investeerders en dat zijn vaak Amerikaanse bedrijven.

Om goedkoop te produceren, kan men geen hoge lonen, veiligheidsmaatregelen en mensenrechten gebruiken. China is voor de bevolking dus geen leuk land. De ramp in Tianjin is waarschijnlijk het gevolg van het gebrek aan regulatie en veiligheidsvoorschriften. Op het terrein lagen grote hoeveelheden chemicaliën opgeslagen. Uiteraard is de overheid dan mede verantwoordelijk! Wat de overheid dan doet, is iedereen het zwijgen opleggen. Bij de vuurwerkramp in Enschede zagen we het zelfde patroon. Daar is niets Chinees aan!

Wat volgens mij wel heel Chinees is, is de “vechtsport” Tai Chi. Het gaat dan om zelfbeheersing en het gebruik maken van de kracht van je tegenstander. De economische oorlog begon reeds in 1945, toen de VS zijn bondgenoot de Sovjet-Unie tot vijand verklaarde. In de “strijd tegen het communisme” werden Viet Nam, Laos en Cambodia plat gebombardeerd, waarna de bevolking achterbleef met de puinhoop. De economische oorlog wordt soms inderdaad met wapens uitgevochten. In dit verband is het volgende (lange!) artikel van een Chinese generaal zeer verhelderend: One belt, one road

China valt niemand aan. Het land is stilzwijgend bezig om zijn economie te versterken. China wil graag deel uitmaken van de wereldeconomie, maar het IMF weigert de Yuan tot op heden toe te laten als reservevaluta. Dat de Amerikanen bang zijn dat China hen zal vernietigen, lijkt dan ook eerder een projectie van een volk dat niet wil inzien dat hun eigen land al 60 jaar bezig is om andere landen te verwoesten! Ook wil men in de VS nog altijd niet inzien dat het kapitalisme een krankzinnig economisch systeem is, dat zich voortbeweegt van de ene crisis naar de andere crisis.

Het kapitalisme is een piramidespel, met enkele winnaars en vele verliezers. Zolang er mensen geloven in dit spel, gaat het goed, maar op dit moment is dat geloof sterk tanende. Gerald Celente verwacht daarom een economische crash in de zeer nabije toekomst!

    Why is China’s Economy Slowing?

    Panic sell-off on world financial markets
    22 August 2015

    The global stock market sell-off that began last week with China’s surprise decision to devalue its currency escalated on Thursday and Friday in a wave of near-panic selling, plunging markets from Asia and Europe to the US and Latin America into negative territory for the year.

    Outside of China, where the Shanghai Composite Index fell 4.3 percent on Friday, the sharpest declines were in the US. The Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged 531 points, or 3.12 percent, bringing its losses for the week to over 1,000 points. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq indexes both fell even more steeply, 3.19 percent and 3.52 percent, respectively.

    The meltdown on equity markets is being driven by signs that the world economy is sliding into a new recession or outright depression. The focal point of the slowdown is China, the world’s second largest economy, which this decade has accounted for a third of the expansion in the global economy. This is almost double the contribution of the US and more than triple the impacts of Europe and Japan.

    China Chooses Her Weapons

    China’s recent mini-devaluations had less to do with her mounting economic challenges, and more to do with a statement from the IMF on 4 August, that it was proposing to defer the decision to include the yuan in the SDR until next October

    The IMF’s excuse was to avoid changes at the calendar year-end and to allow users of the SDR time to “adjust to a potential changed basket composition”. It was a poor explanation that was hardly credible, given that SDR users have already had five years to prepare; but the decision confirming the delay was finally released by the IMF in a statement on Wednesday 19th.

    One cannot blame China for taking the view that these are delaying tactics designed to keep the yuan out, and if so suspicion falls squarely on the US as instigators. America has most to lose, because if the yuan is accepted in the SDR the dollar’s future hegemony will be compromised, and everyone knows it. The final decision as to whether the yuan will be included is not due to be taken until later this year, so China still has time to persuade, by any means at her disposal, all the IMF members to agree to include the yuan in the SDR as originally proposed, even if its inclusion is temporarily deferred.

    China was first rejected in this quest in 2010 and since then has worked hard to address the deficiencies raised at that time by the IMF’s executive board. That is the background to China’s new currency policy and what also looks like becoming frequent updates on her gold reserves. It bears repeating that these moves had little to do with her domestic economic conditions, for the following reasons:

    The stakes are high, and China’s devaluation of only a few per cent has caused enough chaos in capital markets for now. But if the eventual answer is that the yuan will not be allowed to join the SDR basket, it will be in China’s interest to increase the pace of development of the new BRICS bank instead with its own version of an SDR, selling dollar reserves and underlying Treasuries to fund it. The threat that China will turn her back on the post-war financial system and the IMF would also undermine the credibility of that institution more rapidly perhaps than the dollar’s hegemony if the yuan was accepted. And if a US-controlled IMF loses its credibility, even America’s allies will desert her, just as they did to join the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank a few months ago.

    Washington’s Extraordinary ‘Welcome’ for China’s President Xi

    Whether the Chinese government has or has not a case to answer on all these accusations is very much beside the point. And certainly, China is not answerable to Washington. For the United States to make issues about human rights, cyber-hacking and extrajudicial procedures is the stratospheric height of hypocrisy. It’s almost otherworldly in its absurdity.

    With the largest prison population on the planet, over two million, and with police forces that shoot dead hundreds of unarmed African-Americans, including children, every year – the US is in no position to lecture any other country on the issue of human rights.

    While China (and Russia) is accused with vague speculation over cyber-hacking, it is the American government that has a proven case to answer over illegal global spying against millions of citizens and other governments. When China counters that it is the US that is guilty of cyber-crime, the accusations from Beijing do not just sound plausible: they are supported by facts.

    On the matter of extra-territorial security forces, the US is the one that has rendered hundreds of suspects in dozens of countries around the world by forced abduction, throwing their wards into torture centres without any due process. Moreover, President Obama has anointed himself with executive power to summarily assassinate any individual at any time and place of his choosing with killer drones and covert Special Forces.

    As for the issue of «territorial expansionism», so far, there are no media reports of China trying to set up missile systems along the borders of Mexico and Canada aimed at the US; in the same way that Washington has actually enlisted Japan and South Korea to target China with installed «self-defense»missiles.

    In China heeft nogmaals een grote explosie plaats gevonden:

    Explosion at chemical plant in China’s Shandong province (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

    New York Post:
    China rocked by another fatal chemical plant explosion

    Zero Hedge:
    Caught On Tape: Another Huge Chemical Warehouse Explosion Rocks China

    Natural News:
    Second massive explosion strikes China’s production heartland in Shandong as currency wars accelerate toward WWIII

    (NaturalNews) A second, massive explosion has now been recorded in Shandong province, China, just ten days after the Tianjin explosion that killed over 120 people. The Tianjin explosion took place just one day after China devalued its currency by 1.9%, sending financial shock waves across the United States.

    Natural News carried the exclusive report of Chinese dissidents saying they believed the Tianjin explosion was an act of war committed by the Pentagon, intended as a “warning shot” against China for engaged in “currency wars” against America.

    Since that time, China has devalued its currency even more, and the U.S. stock market has plunged into “bloodbath” territory, with the Dow losing over 1,000 last week alone, wiping out hundreds of billions of dollars in market capitalization virtually overnight.

    Apple alone lost $158 billion in stock value virtually overnight, and China’s stock market has been bleeding so much equity that is looks like a 1929 market crash.

    Now, with the second massive explosion in China’s production heartland, we can be reasonably assured these are not random industrial accidents. They are clearly either acts of war or acts of domestic sabotage aimed at creating chaos in China at precisely the same time currency wars are waging across the world with everything at stake!

    Many people are speculating that these attacks are part of an accelerating cyber war / currency war / kinetic war leading up to World War III.

    From The Big Wobble:

    Now in the space of one month, four enormous explosions have happened in Russia and China, one of the explosions in China was so huge the Chinese government had to seed the clouds to put the fire out!

    Just today an apparent crack in an underwater pipeline in Moscow created a massive fire which sent a pillar of smoke hundreds of meters into the air.

    A massive fire erupted on the Moscow River in southeastern Moscow, not far from the site of an oil refinery on Tuesday, creating a gigantic column of smoke seen as far as Red Square, some 15 kilometers away.

      Op NIBURU staat meer!

      Dat zijn in totaal, gerekend vanaf april dit jaar, al vier enorme explosies bij chemische fabrieken. Er vanuit gaand dat Amerika verantwoordelijk is voor de explosie op 12 augustus in Tianjin (zoals door Mike Adams van NatuaralNews is beschreven) dan is het niet onlogisch om te veronderstellen dat ze ook iets te maken hebben met die andere explosies.

      Vier chemische fabrieken die zo ongeveer achter elkaar de lucht in vliegen, is een beetje veel, zelfs voor Chinese begrippen.

      Daarmee is het dan dus niet zo dat Amerika wraak neemt op China zoals wordt gesuggereerd, maar dat het China is die door middel van devaluatie van hun munteenheid wraak neemt op Amerika. De VS was dus al ver voor de devaluatie van de Yuan bezig met het opblazen van Chinese chemische fabrieken.

      Dit is een bijzonder effectieve tactiek want de Chinese overheid krijgt het steeds moeilijker om de bang geworden bevolking gerust te stellen en hen ervan te verzekeren dat er niet iedere vijf minuten een andere fabriek zal exploderen naast hun woonwijk. Er is duidelijk sprake van een detabilisatieproces zoals ook uitgelegd door economic hitman John Perkins. Hoe bombardeer je een land zonder het te bombarderen. Zo dus.

    Making Sense Of The Sudden Market Plunge
    Posted on August 23, 2015 by Chris Martenson

    Markets are quite possibly in crash mode right now, although events are unfolding so quickly – currency spikes, equity sell offs, emerging market routs and dislocations, and commodity declines – that it’s hard to tell for sure. However, that’s usually the case right before and during big market declines.

    Before you read any further, you probably should be made aware that, at Peak Prosperity, our market outlook has been one of extreme caution for several years. We never bought into so-called “recovery” because much of it was purely statistical in nature, and had to rely on heavily distorted and tortured ‘statistics’ to be believed. Okay, lies is probably a more accurate term in many cases.

    Further, most of the gains in financial assets engineered by the central banks were false and destined to burst because they were based on bubble psychology, not actual returns.

    Global Ponzi scheme threatens to implode
    24 August 2015

    Asian stock markets opened Monday with another sharp selloff. As of this writing, China’s Shanghai Composite index had dropped by over 8 percent and Japan’s Nikkei, Hong Kong’s Hang Seng and Australia’s All Ordinaries were all down by more than 3 percent. China’s central bank was preparing another round of cash infusions into the country’s financial markets.

    The global panic, which has wiped out over a trillion dollars in stock values in the US alone, has shattered the claim that the US and world economies are in the midst of an economic recovery.

    Prompted by decelerating economic growth in China, a collapse of financial markets and currencies in the so-called emerging market countries, and a continuing fall in the price of oil and other commodities, the plunge in stock prices is an expression not simply of passing conditions, but rather the inability of governments and central banks to address the fundamental contradictions of the capitalist system that led to the Wall Street crash and recession of 2008–2009.

    What appears to be coming to an end is the period when massive infusions of cash by central banks into the financial markets, combined with a ruthless assault on the living standards of the international working class, could paper over the systemic character of the crisis and produce a boom in stock prices, corporate profits and the wealth of the financial aristocracy—even as the real economy continued to stagnate.

    Black Monday: Biggest slide in Chinese stocks since 2007, Brent oil below $44

    The Shanghai composite has closed down 8.5 percent in a brutal selloff, as Beijing’s measures have failed to ease investor concerns about the slowdown of the world’s second-largest economy. China’s stocks are now down for the year after being up 60 percent in June.

    And finally do not forget this is not money that will rotate from ‘stocks’ to ‘bonds’ this is credit-created positions via carry/repo that when liquidated simply disappear – there is no cash to move to another asset. That’s the whole point – the asset inflation has been created by leveraged carry – and as is obvious now, the market emperor is wearing no clothese beneath the thin veneer of centrally planned smoke and mirrors.

    Chinese Stocks Are Crashing; Yuan Devalues, Deposit Rate Spikes To Record High, Japan Denies “G7 Response” Planned

    Het volgende artikel laat zien dat de “Rod of God” een vrij onwaarschijnlijke complot-theorie is. De veiligheidsvoorschriften in China zijn volstrekt onvoldoende! De tweede explosie was ook niet de tweede, er ontploft wel vaker iets in China!

    Worker killed in another Chinese factory explosion

    The explosion in Zibo is also the second to take place in Shandong province in as many months. The other occurred in Rizhao, a port city, on July 16. Video of the incident shows huge flames at the petrochemical plant and, while no-one was killed, two firefighters were injured fighting the blaze. Chinese state media blamed the fire on a “serious violation of regulations, management disorder and lack of safety awareness.”

    Both incidents bare stark resemblance to a massive fire that took place at a paraxylene factory in Fujian province in April of this year. The Fujian plant had also only opened recently and experienced a smaller fire after a hydrogen pipeline ruptured when test operations began in July 2013. This was followed by the massive explosion this spring.

    Saturday’s blast also comes after two, massive explosions on August 12 at a warehouse complex in Tianjin left at least 129 people dead and approximately 700 injured. Forty-four people are still missing, mostly fire fighters. The explosions caused widespread devastation to the world’s tenth largest port city and home to approximately 14 million people.

    The “Chinese dragon” of the last two decades may be faltering but it is still hailed by many as an economic miracle. Far from a great advance for Chinese workers, however, it is the direct result of a consolidation of power in the hands of a small clique of powerful families, families that have actively collaborated with Western financial oligarchs.

    Looting Made Easy: The $2 Trillion Buyback Binge

    By Mike Whitney

    August 28, 2015 “Information Clearing House” – Corporations are taking the retirement savings of elderly public employees and using them to inflate their stock prices so wealthy CEOs and their shareholders can enrich themselves at the expense of their companies. And it’s all completely legal. Under current financial regulations, corporate bosses are free to repurchase their own company’s shares, push stock prices into the stratosphere, skim off a generous bonuses for themselves in the form of executive compensation, and leave their companies drowning in red ink.

    Even worse, a sizable portion of the money devoted to stock buybacks is coming from “massively underfunded public pension” funds that retired workers depend on for their survival. According to Brian Reynolds, Chief Market Strategist at New Albion Partners, “Pension funds have to make 7.5%,” so they are putting their money “in these levered credit funds that mimic Long-Term Capital Management in the 1990s.” Those funds, in turn, “buy enormous amounts of corporate bonds from companies which put cash onto company balance sheets…and they use it to jack their stock price up, either through buybacks or mergers and acquisitions…It’s just a daisy chain of financial engineering and it’s probably going to intensify in coming years.” (“How a Public Pension Crisis Is Driving an Epic Credit Boom“, Financial Sense)

    So, once again, ordinary working people are caught in the crosshairs of a corporate scam that could blow up in their faces and leave them without sufficient resources to muddle through their retirement years.

    The amount money that’s being funneled into buybacks is simply staggering. According to Dave Dayen at the Intercept:

    Europe in Free Fall

    By The Saker

    August 28, 2015 “Information Clearing House” – “UNZ” – Europe is in free fall. Nobody can doubt that any more. In fact, the EU is simultaneously suffering from several severe problems and any one of these could potentially become catastrophic. Let’s look at them one by one.

    The 28 member EU makes no economic sense

    The most obvious problem for the EU is that it makes absolutely no economic sense. Initially, in the early 1950s, there was a small group of not too dissimilar nations which decided to integrate their economies. These were the so-called Inner Six who founded the European Community (EC): Belgium, France, West Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands. In 1960 this “core group” was joined by seven more countries, the Outer Seven, who were unwilling to join the EC but wanted to join a European Free Trade Association (EFTA). These were Austria, Denmark, Norway, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. Together these countries formed what could loosely be called “most of western Europe”.
