Wouldn't it be a smart move if China now starts demanding that all supplies of masks and medical equipment they are selling are paid in gold or yuan?

And drop the dollar?

It would be better if countries would make their own masks and everything else they can and not rely on China for any damned thing

@Cierzo there will be people boycotting so many things made in China that stores will learn to find alternatives

@TheOneyouwerewarnedabout They should play more. Other countries have played them for decades and their time is over
@Cierzo just saying in the current climate.. lot of outspoken politicians around the globe are cranky at China.. trump orders all Americans abroad home.. Inacts like 1M reserves .. 😳

No. It would be a smart move to help countries like Italy, Spain, Iran, the U.S. and other that are hard hit by the virus by giving them all possible help and equipment for free.

The reign of the dollar as reserve currency will end anyway sooner or later. The decline of the U.S. and its increasing use of financial sanctions against many countries makes sure of that.

@Mugin16 Why not both? I believe China is making many more friends than the EU in Italy and Spain now.

@Cierzo There are videos of Italian mayors removing the EU flags from their offices and buildings. Some Italians have even started to burn EU flags.

Fortunately the current President eliminated the excise tax placed on medical equipment by the previous administration making it reasonable to produce medical equipment in the United States

@sunsporter1649 This is what every country should do.

@Daisy50 Same to you. I don't want to be right. I just say what I think might happen

@Cierzo That is not your tone.You wish ill on the USA.
Cierzo · M
@Daisy50 I don't wish that. I just think it is going to happen.
