    What happen of China’s economy, the USA will get the same since, many firms of US based are their in China, if these US firms will leave China,China’s economy will slow only a little because imitation of products by these US firms will flood on China…about manipulation of economy, China is obviously do this, massive infrastructure was built in last decade in China but until now these was still unoccupied…some say this was “ghost cities and malls” since there is no occupants right now.
