When I say Chinese sisters and brother, I'm not referring to you. That's a general statement. As usual, you cannot handle the facts and are reduced to opinions. I'll just cut and paste my response from the other thread since it applies here too! Get a clue! All your opinions don't change the financial and economic realities. Taiwan's leverage is decreasing daily. You can do all the talking you want, but ultimately, the numbers speak for itself.
Actually, you don’t even have your facts straight. Taiwan is exporting upwards of 37% to China, and that reliance is growing, which means leverage is decreasing for Taiwan. Convenience? You are kidding yourself, guy! The Taiwanese markets reacted quite negatively to even a hint of formal independence from ambiguous language during CSB’s New Year speech. That should tell you how the Taiwan market itself feels about this issue.
Secondly, both Japan and China have huge currency reserves that are almost equal (check your facts). Since Japan’s debt to GDP ratio is very bad, China remains the lone lender that has the liquidity to finance America. China has enough financial leverage that it can move markets and interest rates. If you are really in the US, then what I’m telling you is no surprise. China only needed to slow down the new purchases of dollar denominated assets, and interest rates have gone up. That is damaging to interest sensitive sectors of the US economy like real estate. What part of China’s financial leverage do you not understand since we have already seen that leverage in action last summer? Japan has its own financial problems with over a decade of a stagnate economy so don’t realistically look to Japan for help.
Mainland China is not my government. I’ve written my Plan for Peace here on this site, and I feel it is more realistic to find peace via unification (formal or practical) than it is via independence. Unlike some war hawks and war profiteers, I’m not interested in seeing a war on the Straits as no Chinese wins. I learn to discount the interlopers who claim their interest is a Democratic Taiwan, when their foreign policies are hypocritical around the world. Whether you know it or not, Taiwan is just a pawn and is being used as a proxy to undermine the Mainland.
