    to go.   China's GDP is nowhere near saturation level.   Nothing is constraining China's growth since it
    still has access to affordable energy and food.   It actually has an industrial sector and can feed it with
    the necessary resources to function.  

    By contrast, the USA, Canada and most of the EU are some sort of zombie consumer economies which float
    on catabolic residual consumption as the middle class disappears.   Without debt there would be no
    OECD economies aside from special export dominated economies like Germany.   Offshoring jobs and introducing
    trickle down voodoo based on merchant profits from imported junk costing next to nothing resold for western
    prices cannot be a long term economic model.   At some stage true 3rd world conditions are reached (99%
    dirt poor and 1% rich).

    The western propaganda about China's economy is the same hate fantasy projection as in the case of Russia.
    The western fake stream media is a total waste of space.

    Is there any thing Russia can do help China become stronger financially and in bargain gain most from it.

    Like Trade Russian Energy in Chinese Renminbi or keep Renminb in Forex and buy Chinese Government bond ?

    China Economy about to Collapse ?

    Other than keep providing cheap energy and yes, trading in local currencies, not much else to help. I guess give access to Chinese businesses in Russia would help both sides as well.

    American financial piracy

    However, it had become known at the very end of December 2017, that just a couple of months prior to this (in October), $22 billion dollars of the National Sovereign Fund of Kazakhstan were blocked in the accounts of the Belgian filial of the American Bank of New York Mellon. These 22 billion comprise around 40% of the Sovereign Fund, and around 17% of the entire Gross Domestic Product of Kazakhstan.



    - The fact that the money was confiscated in the course of a lawsuit by Moldavian businessman Anatol Stati, who was involved in investments in the Kazakh oil-gas industry (his investments comprised $150 million dollars), as a result of which he got into a quarrel with the Kazakh government.

    - The fact that Stati’s lawsuit named a maximum of $4 billion dollars, and the Stockholm Arbitrage Court ruled in 2013 that Kazakhstan owed a compensation to the businessman in the amount of half a billion dollars; and yet seized $22 billion.

    - The fact that this is apparently not the only — although it is the largest — case of blocking Kazakhstan’s money, on the part of the West. It is said that simultaneously there was a whole series of smaller financial arrests.


    So a dispute over $150 million results in the seizure of $22 billion.

    If there is a rogue regime on this planet, then it is the USA. And all courts in countries allied with the USA are not trustworthy.

    Fucking disgusting. But the americunts also do this BS to their allies, especially France. The US freezed the assets of several French corporations and Banks(including BNP Paribas I think) for allegedly dealing with Iran or just to remove competition.

    Yup, it doesn't matter who you are, every so often the US has to remind the vassals just who is in charge. Often it is by levelling fines for some activity or other. There is also a lot of gold from banks around the world in the US that may or may not still be there, getting it back has proved to be difficult, unless perhaps you are the country responsible for the MH-17 case.

    Such things would never happen 20 years ago, they never dared even to block or freeze Soviet assets and forex (which were minimal by the way). All this proves the elite desperation, we are probably seeing the very last days of the dollar hegemony.

    This is why Washington and its proxies are getting ready for war on Russia. The US economy is basically not growing after 2008.
    This is in spite of record money injections and debt stimulus. There has been some sort of phase transition in the US economy
    that its caretakers cannot fix.

    It also appears that all the globalism is not yielding the rewards that were expected back in 1991. America is a trapped
    wild animal ready to go for broke.
