Comment BAU (Score 1) 64

It's interesting to see so many messages defending Russian meddling on ./ early in the morning before the US wakes up.

It seems to the MO these days on the Internet. China, Russia, etc. are doing overt and covert campaigns while the US and the West are doing SIGINT. Both are just as bad for the average man or woman.

Comment China blues (Score 5, Insightful) 120

China is due for a massive correction in the economy. Debt driven growth has reached saturation and from now on, we will see a lot of deleveraging and money being printed (ie. QE) to prevent deflation.

Acquisitions is one of the best ways to swap depreciating Yuan assets (to use as collateral) and turn them into foreign assets. As the likelihood that CNY will devalue increases, you will see more and more of these desperate deals.

Liquidity is way overrated. This obsession with liquidity led to financial innovation like CDOs. Often a focus to increase liquidity mis-calculates risk and overlooks the trade-off.

For a local transportation services, I'd prefer price consistency over a step-improvement in efficiency by liquidity measures like surge pricing. Dual-rate peak pricing is only acceptable because it is consistently applied at a fixed schedule.
