U.S. Dollar Monetary Policy
With the outrageous policies of Barack Hussein Obama who is pretending he can spend money at will and not suffer any consequences, this has rightfully caused American trading partners, especially the Chinese, to be concerned over the eventual collapse in value of the U.S. dollar, which could devastate China because of their continual and misguided buying up of Treasury debt.
It is assumed that China must do this to continue prospering, (and to a slight degree that may be true), but this has went way beyond that, and American consumers aren't spending, so China is extremely exposed to devastating harm if they don't do something about it.
As a result, the U.S. dollar should be the major focus of Chinese-U.S. talks starting in Washington today as China pushes the Obama administration on how it will manage the fiscal deficit and protect the U.S. currency’s value. Of course the answer is they can't, and any student of the markets and honest economist will acknowledge that.
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will host two days of meetings talking on topics from the economic crisis to North Korea. The Strategic and Economic Dialogue is the first by the Obama administration with China.
The global recession has underscored the common interests of the economies, ranked first and third largest in the world, as Vice Premier Wang Qishan seeks to preserve the value of the world’s biggest Treasury holdings, while U.S. pushes China to rely more on domestic demand and not exports for growth.
Bizarrely, clueless Timothy Geither and equally clueless Hillary Clinton are pressing the Chinese on becoming even more socialist by providing more social safety in order to combat the wonderful habits of the Chinese for saving rather than spending. These wackos need to step down out of office for even bringing up such rot. They don't belong in a U.S. government position when they seek to export socialism to the Chinese. They're getting wackier and wackier by the moment.
China’s exchange-rate policy will be talked about. The U.S. wants a more flexible yuan, though Geithner has avoided a showdown on the issue, declining to repeat more ignorant comments he made in written communication to lawmakers after his Senate confirmation hearing in January that China was “manipulating” its currency.
Both nations are pumping cash into their economies to revive growth. Though Premier Wen Jiabao said in March he was worried about the safety of the nation’s U.S. assets, China bought $38 billion of U.S. notes and bonds in May, taking its holdings to $801.5 billion. The Chinese should never have done this, and they still be pay in the face of the horrid and inexperience displayed by the Obama administration.
The U.S. deficit could go as high as a record $1.85 trillion for the fiscal year ending Sept. 30, almost four times the previous fiscal year’s $455 billion shortfall, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke will brief Chinese officials about how the U.S. plans to keep inflation in check over the next few years, people advised of the plan said this month. In June, Geithner told China that the U.S. wants to shrink its budget gap as soon as an economic recovery takes hold.
Unfortunately, Ben Bernanke is as clueless about monetary policy as they come, and along with the Federal Reserve, is largely responsible for the continued and lengthening recession, which should have been allowed to work its way out without government interference.
The U.S. dollar will continue to suffer under these tortuous and horrible monetary policies until the Keynesian way of managment is completely abandoned and recognized as outrageously deficient and unable to work, as decades of failure have already proven.
