    I get a kick out of people that complain about Chinese imports, and then turn right around and buy gold.

    What that article is saying is that the Chinese are rich and buying up America which in turn is called "Exports". Pretty soon the dollar will be so worthless that while there will be plenty of food on the shelves AMERICANS WON'T BE ABLE TO AFFORD ANY OF IT!

    I get a kick out of people who think money printing by the Fed won't affect the value of the Dollar.

    devaluation of th dollar is the result of the trade imbalance and an attempt to boost exp[orts. The US consumer is not buying enough to spur the economy.

    Those "drops in the bucket" end up being $411,000,000,000 in imports, sport.
