Welcome to the new trans-Eurasia choo-choo train. At over 13,000 kilometers, it will regularly traverse the longest freight train route in the world, 40% farther than the legendary Trans-Siberian Railway. Its cargo will cross China from East to West, then Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus, Poland, Germany, France, and finally Spain.
You may not have the faintest idea where Yiwu is, but businessmen plying their trades across Eurasia, especially from the Arab world, are already hooked on the city “where amazing happens!” We're talking about the largest wholesale center for small-sized consumer goods -- from clothes to toys -- possibly anywhere on Earth.
Come and get it......if you can.
Rather than reducing their debt, China has been 'investing' in about every market place outside China that accepts their currency in payment. Oil assets all over the world, mining assets...huge and diverse.

Could you please expand on that thought. I'm having a hard time seeing how the relatively stable, if high, oil prices was causing a economic crisis.
If anything, lower prices, especially this much and this fast, is destabilizing, in and of itself.
