1. Sorry, sj, but you are confusing Russia’s drop in GNP of 11.3% with China’s drop of 19.7%. You just said you were an expert on China.

  2. Eron......
    Plesea be sensible when posting comments on here.
    The US is very much in trouble and their debt is out of control. They withdrew/defeated in Afghanistan last year. They couldnt stand up to Russia in Venezuela, Syria and in 2014 Crimea. Its all BS by America accusing Russia and China of rubbish. The truth is that America is fast declining. They have a split society at home, a moron of a president and is near bankrupt.
    Throughout history empires have collapsed (mostly) from within. What is happening to America is the same now......and they dont like it because they cant do anything about it. They can not defeat Russia on the battle field and can not beat China either. But in the unliky event of war China and Russia would be on the same side. And you know what that means....!!
    So Eron, please stop posting cr*p on here and looking foolish and naive....

  3. Eron the Moron. Of course GDP is going up due to massive spending bills passed by the Congress which barely addresses the needs such as infrastructure. When all that money finally circulates through the economic system , what are you left with? Staggering inflation , massive debt and GDP will fall precipitously. The US is essentially bankrupt.

    America likes to forge the books, they can as their currency is king and they don't answer to anyone. That attitude caused the last GFC. Looks like another is around the corner and more money printing. That money printer has been high on crack the past 20 plus years.

    So, Sputnik actually mentioned me, eh? Let’s see China’s GDP fell during the pandemic while the US rose ha, ha, ha.

    In 2021, trade between China and the US rose by a 28.7% amounting to a staggering $755.6 billion deficit in favour of China – that means the US paid China $755.6 billion.

    China is the biggest manufacturer in the world by far, China is the biggest trading country and it has the highest PPP and yet the US is No1 world economy which is 80% consumerism.

    I am not familiar with Russia, but China is in my sphere and I know what is going on there. The figures are based on past performances i.e. comparison of past growth figures of 12% and 14% with current. That’s why you get that “: fell by 11.3%....”. If the US did the same it would also show a fall, but they are protected by the force field of freedom and democracy.

    I don’t make predictions, I quote facts. US debt is on the cusp of $30 trillion; inflation is nearer to 9.5%, some say it 12% to 13%. This not a prediction but fact. The US is unable to repay that debt - fact. They are only paying interest on the $30 trillion.

    You my little goat herder don’t know what you are looking at so stick to scrubbing those floors in the mall.

  6. I know for a fact sj is full of bs, not my words but those of Sputnik.com. Let us look at his record at making predictions. He predicted the demise of the U.S, thirteen times in the last year. The truth is the GDP of that U.S. went up during the pandemic, according to The Economist. How much did the GDP of Russia and China go down? Russia’s GDP fell 11.3% and for China, it fell by 19.7%

  7. I know for a fact despite the glowing media commentary about the Australian Open, its a complete and utter failure. In fact at some events the tennis officials had to open gates for free just to have someone in the stand.
    That's what happens when you have a scumbag like Morrison in charge. He really is a first class moron.

  8. Nobody wants to come to Australia to work if you get locked down, especially backpackers. Backpackers are free spirited and believe in choice when it comes to vaccination. After the Novak tennis scandal, I doubt any backpackers will want to come.
    Most on working visas over east have left Australia for good.
