Russian General Arsene De Goulevitch stated that "the MAIN purveyors of funds for the revolution, however, were neither the crackpot Russian millionaires nor the armed bandits of Lenin. The `real' money primarily came from certain British and American circles which for a long time past had lent their support to the Russian revolutionary cause...
The preferred Iluminati method to introduce disease is via vaccinations. Dr. Len Horowitz firmly established in his 1995 book, Emerging Viruses, that the HIV virus which causes AIDS was introduced and spread throughout the majority of black populations in Africa via the World Health Organization (WHO) during their mandatory smallpox vaccine campaigns of 1976-1980
The Chinese Yuan (RMB) was never "devalued". It has been pegged to the US dollar since 1995, when it had roughly the relative exchange value that it has now. Only now is it estimated to be undervalued since it was not allowed to increase in value as China developed economically.
From the link
First, they devalue their currency by as much as 40%
It was always this way. Nothing new.
Then they issue tariffs on foreign goods.
Foreign firms never had access to marketing channels until recently. In fact, China never had marketing channels until recently, unless you count hand-painted signs at the local market. Foreign-owned firms' access to marketing options grows by the day as advertising firms in China struggle for the billboard dollar. Many of these advertising firms are also foreign-owned and are sending money by the truckload back overseas to Europe and the States..
They cut foreign firms off from local marketing channels.
Always did, always will. It's the Chinese way of doing business. "Guan Xi" they call it, loosely translated as "connections".
They chaperone and handpick partners for international joint ventures
They have always done this, and some economists speculate that the Chinese banking system is on the verge of collapse since the overwhelming majority of the loans given by state-owned banks to ridiculously inefficient state-owned companies will never be paid back. China's state-owned banks are technically insolvent, which is why the people who research and release China's economic figures are also government employees. Can't have the rest of the world thinking that China's about to collapse, now can we?
They give preferential loans to their own factories from state banks.
This has been the way since the still-puny China stock-exchange started up.
Chinese companies get privileged listing on the Chinese stock market
Always been this way, nothing new. However this is being changed incrementally in line with meeting China's WTO membership requirements.
Chinese companies get special tax breaks not available to foreigners
