Zheng Gang: China prepares for financial warfare


4:08p ET Wednesday, December 11, 2013
Gold researcher and GATA consultant Koos Jansen today translates into English and publishes commentary written in June by Chinese financial management executive Zheng Gang about what he considers a financial war being waged against the world by the United States.
"The strategic 'game' to preserve the U.S. dollar's global status is now the focus of international political and economic activity," Zheng writes. "The U.S. makes a new kind of non-military offensive against developing and transforming countries derived from her ability to set favorable rules, an ability she possesses through dollar hegemony."
Zheng's commentary is titled "China Prepares for Financial Warfare" and it's posted at Jansen's Internet site, In Gold We Trust, here:

There are expected to be plenty of detractors. Even the officials putting the change forward have reservations. "We understand that many passengers would prefer that voice calls not be made on airplanes. I feel that way myself," the F.C.C.'s chairman, Tom Wheeler, said in a statement. The F.C.C. banned calls on flights over two decades ago because of concerns that technical interference could affect safety. The agency says these concerns are no longer valid.
