    Since China controls most of the rare earth metals, electric cars would put them in the driver's seat.

    This is no longer posted in the Fed Minutes of January 2008, but still quoted here - https://www.nbcnews.com/id/wbna22592939. The FOMC minutes still quote MR. Reifschneider. as stating the same thing.

    It seems that China's efforts to slow population growth have been successful. India is set to overtake them as the most populous country pretty soon. Those two are the big ones. The US is #3, with a little less than a third of what they each have. A few of the others on the list of the top 12 surprised me.

    How times have changed. When I first became aware of the world in the early 1970s as a teenager, India's population was only five hundred million, and now it's almost triple that. Do they really need that many people? It's also amazing that Indonesia, Nigeria, Ethiopia, and others have so many people, and they sure don't need that many. I remember reading that back in the year 1900, either Europe or those of European descent all over the world comprised 30% of the world's population. Of course, it can be hard to colonize and take over the world without the numbers to support it. Nowadays that 30% figure is down to 10% and by mid-century it will drop to 7%. So many people are having too many children, while others are not having as many as they should.

    In regards to the population growth in India, when you consider they have million of excess males, you know what is going to happen. Not pretty. Million of baby girls get killed. Nuts. And the irony is, that the wealthiest group of people I know are Indians.

    we never realized that in the so called underdeveloped countries they have no social security nor pension system, their Natural protection is to have a big family i= offspring which will care for them. it is an exponential need nobody realized to see in the west. The better living condition = access to food and medicine is a disaster in se for those countries, because instead of helping to convert the ssystem, it enables the offspring system to expand.

    I breaks my heart to see underfed children, but a childrestriction commitment combined with a pensionincentive would be the solution to dampen the insane population increase, because such tremendous population increases combined with a strife for better material conditions is a disaster.

    Our local poor are superrich in the eyes of their poor, and the day they reach the meterial level of our poor in average our world will be a sunsccorched desert.

    I have read analysis about that. They say that actually it is not the
    end of globalization .....but it is re-globalization without China.

    No single country can match the manufacturing power of China. However,
    much manufacturing power is going now to countries like India, Vietnam etc

    Balance sheet recession....ie too much debt.

    Japan passed through, that roughly from 1990's to 2020's.
    Now Japan is nicely recovering.

    The same thing happens now to China. Too much debt. People
    and institutions have to save to pay the debt. That means less
    money is available for consumption and investments is the economy
    is slowing down.
