This isn't great for the same reason UBI isn't great.
If everyone has a set amount of free money, their time and services will simply cost that much more.
Why work hard to sell chicken for 50k a year if you're getting paid an extra 10 for fun?
Next year that chicken costs 20 percent more..

Unchecked inflation.
Free money ruins money.

Not that I don't want free money... I've got debt! As long as my income keeps up with the inflation I'm for it.
Break the stupid system.

It would need tobe more like $3300 to exhaust all of the roughly $1.1T in US debt owned by China. There would be monetary effects and war to consider, which would likely costmuch more, but if they just roll over and take it, sure, why not?

If there were true justice, they would reimburse every dollar lost in this process and then some. Not because it originated in China, even if it was an accidental (read: incompetence) release from the lab, but because they buried the truth, and purposefully encouraged its spread by allowing travel out of China (but not within China), allowing it to spread worldwide.

The CCP needs tobe taught a lesson. I believe we (the entire world) need to cut them off completely, economically, for at least 20 years.

I didn’t read a declaration of war from anyone
Oh you mean make this as big, silly and as ludicrous as you possible can, talk a lot of stupidity about war and such, hyperbole and drama so you don’t have to pay back what you owe them

The US is in debt to the Chinese, your fault.
It’s not a war, it’s dumb and greedy to spend money you don’t have



War has evolved. Economic war,Cyber attacks,deliberate release of a virus when it could had been contained. We are already at war if we go by WW2 standards because they hit us all with a virus.

It is simple China will never give or forgive one red cent the US owes and it was our very own greed that set this up wanting cheep cheaper cheapest .
Ok so we learned a hard lesson first thing to do is get factory's up and running here in the US again by going all out we could have that up and running in as little as 5 years ( talk about creating JOBS !

Once we have that up and running Just cut out ALL imports from ALL country's for the next 20 years WILE paying off what we owe . Defalts HA if it was done right within 25 years US would owe no one .

It sure cant be done by just cutting china off cold turkey and if ITS not oves by now we need to MAKE our own stuff here then we deserve to louse it forever and mite as well fly every country's flag but our own as they all will Owen it anyway .

Oh wow, not what I have ever heard in the past (in fact I heard the opposite from an American) but (with what little research and understanding I just undertook) seems you are right on the money
But
Should nobody require US debt anymore, seeing China and Russia trading in their own currency for oil, makes it a concern for economic stability

I can’t see China paying, maybe there is a plan to cripple the US economy
Trump does seem suspiciously worried about China and the economy at the moment, he has a secret I think

And do you have evidence that China released this virus on purpose? Why the hell would they do that? Bring down the economies that China rely on so much?

People are just desperate for this to be the case, that they believe any BS they come across!


We are already at war if we go by WW2 standards because they hit us all with a virus.


Don't be so ridiculous! This is not About evidence, this is about what you want go be true to justify some sort of war!

Armchair soldiers always live the thought if war!

letting chinese people who should be under quarantine fly to other countries was a act of war. They knowingly allowed it.

ANd Not all wars end in nukes.

Isn't the dept in the form of bonds.
In a 'capitalistic world', the appetite for US bonds would be effected.
I'm not sure how flexible this IOU contract is, and how one would vary the value for a single bond holder only.

As far as I am aware, the only mechanism would be quantitative easing, or dropping the repo rate (which is near zero).
This would effect any one holding US bonds.

I think iff reparations are to e sought, they should be done in a "targeted' fashion, to avoid collateral damage..

Why would we do this?
For pay back? Justice?
How is this anything but xenophobic?

If, for instance, England had an outbreak instead of China? Or Japan? Would that change your suggestion?

Why?
Answering that why would probably be beneficial to you.

CPP doesn't want to Hurt America - They want it gone.
CPP are power hungry but not instant individual power - but long term family Power.

They want to take over from the Western elite by destroying the western banking system by turning it against them.

CPP will get control of US state politics by stealing data over networks and releasing or blackmailing.

They don't care about religion infighting because they slow intern everyone the only care about long-term global domination.

This Pandemic has sold most of US corporations directly to the CPP via stocks.

You do realise if the west economy crashes, then that would destroy China economy too?

So many people sprouting rubbish, without any thought!

China's economy is mainly from the west. Destroy the western economy, you are also destroying China's.

It's not rocket science!

Yeah because it's China that has bases all over the world. It's China that invades, or is involved in invasions of other countries.

Cannot stand plain ignorance!

Why do some want to make this only an American problem?? As if the entire world is not looking at China with clearer eyes recently due to their inaction and lies.

Because all we have to go on are threads in here. And in here the minority of people calling for some form of conflict are Americans. Of course not saying all American people are saying this, as I do not know every American person, but on here, the majority if people saying all this bs about going to war with China or nuking China are Americans.

Experts believe that China, which they claim has caused the spread of the novel coronavirus around the world, should pay compensation for not fulfilling its international obligations.

Samuel Armstrong, a law expert at UK-based think tank the Henry Jackson Society, professor James Kraska, a professor at the Stockton Center for International Law at the US Naval War College, and Paul Miller, a professor at the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service, evaluated applicable international sanctions on China.



Noting the complexity of calculating the economic damage from COVID-19, Armstrong said quantifying the damage is difficult especially for developing countries and added that they estimate at least a $4 trillion loss for G7 countries alone.


G7 countries are: Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States. Add to it that Russia is PISSED and India ... theyre in a position to slam China as well . Italy and France had done a lot of new trade and business with China right before this hit... and they were hit hard with this virus. Dont forget about Australia..

China's good buddy Iran.. slammed hard and pissed off.


Instead of halting flights to China when the risk of contagion was clear, the regime threatened and imprisoned dozens of Iranians who told the truth about the outbreak. The regime encouraged large public gatherings to try to bolster its legitimacy, with no regard for the health risk to Iranian citizens.
