    Not referring to the stripper chicks... And, well, not medicinally out of focus but WHY is China not a subforum within the forum? I may personally have a bit of understanding toward carpathean men and, :D well... Enjoy the imagination of others, however, on a serious note... WHAT THE HELL ARE WE NOT DOING? *Really*? I get the Latino flavor.... Bring it.

    Oh, I apologize, I should have named this one of 'Witchcraft's finest' for the moment.

    Currency:U.S. Dollar (USD)

    ugh... and to be further aware that apparently wiki and educational sources have *apparently* and *obviously* unified... (personal *note*)

    A Weak Dollar Benefits Chinese Exports - Seeking Alpha

    For those readers who tire of charts: enjoy!


    As the "news" continues to trumpet the decline/collapse of the U.S. dollar, many observers seem to have forgotten that the U.S. dollar is the de facto "shared currency" of the world's largest economy and its biggest rising-star economy. Yes, the U.S. and the PRC--China. China's currency (officially the renminbi, a.k.a. yuan) is transparently pegged to the U.S. dollar at about 6.8 yuan to the dollar, down from 8+ a few years ago.


    GLOBAL WARMING IN CHINA - China | Facts and Details

    [​IMG] China is the largest producer of greenhouse gases and the largest emitter of carbon dioxide. It was not supposed to overtake the United States as the world’s leading producer of greenhouse gases until 2020 but a study by a Dutch government-funded group released in June 2007 determined that China was already the world’s No. 1 emitter of carbon dioxide then. It surpassed the United States in 2006 when it produced 7.5 percent more of these gasses than the United States compared to 2 percent less in 2005. In August 2008, Germany’s IWR Institute concluded that China’s carbon dioxide emissions in 2008 were 6.8 million tons—the most of any nation and 178 percent higher than the 1990 level. The United States and China together account for 40 percent of the world's greenhouse gases  most of which is derived from coal.

    October 4, 2011 | China on Tuesday blasted a proposed U.S. bill that would punish countries for undervaluing their currency by saying it would undermine the global economy and potentially lead to a trade war.

    The weak dollar benefits Chinese exports, but it hurts China overall because it fuels the inflation problem that it already has.

    This shows how old (and possibly irrelevant) this article has become. The yen's at 76.76 right now.

    Old, indeed... it is as though there is a conspiracy as to who and how news media can print things regarding competitive superpowers.

    Is America bound? That is it? We are bound by something that prevents us from being able to successfully recognize let alone address our root issues?
