      Incentivize ALL US companies with full repatriation and no corporate tax for 3-5 years to move out of there....problem solved and economic growth beyond our wildest dreams for us....starvation and mass uprising for them.

        No need to actually do that. A lot of companies are already moving their supply chains out of there or have plans to do so.

        To some extent yes they are, but they aren't necessarily coming here. They are going to other nations on that side of the globe.

        I think crete is talking about incentivizing them into coming to the US, instead of India etc.
        Hell we'd probably benefit much more if these companies went to Mexico as well instead if being in the East

          Honestly if the world stopped relying on China one of two things will happen.
          1) china will start a war over it
          2) china will collapse

            That one child policy they had for so many years where they were choosing to have boys mostly is probably causing a lot of stress now. What better way to reduce that population.

            BTW, approx 400 million people downstream of it. If it collapses, lots of people and supply chains will be in tatters.

              You really piqued my interest on this topic. Western engineers said that there were structural defects over a decade ago (they were invited by the Chinese). The Chinese said they were being racist. Satellite images seem to show that the dam has warped. I didn’t know that was actually a thing that could be sustained. The Chinese are claiming that it is the result of satellite image distortion.

              And China generates an absolute sh** ton of its electricity from this dam.

              This situation will be interesting because more rain is coming.

                    I read they're opening up the release valves and letting a bunch of water out to ease the pressure.

                    But if it keeps on raining...

                          Ha! Good one. Fact is, it is under control at the present moment, though. The damn has not burst! Just like the Bat Stew Flu was under control at one point, then it wasn't, and now it is again, but people have resorted to lying about it to make it seem like it isn't.
