My theories of this Korean conflict... What are yours?Submitted by October2007 on Sun, 11/28/2010 - 01:57
Will a Korean war artificially strengthen the dollar?
Hear me out: If there is a Korean war, the U.S. will inevitably get involved and play the usual role of "Team America World Police"...
With that said, is it possible that this Korean war creates demand from China to have the U.S. military as a "referee" to "help" prevent an escalation of war that could end up spreading into China.
Bottom line: This could be a ploy to assure that China keeps buying our bonds in order to assure that the U.S. military can afford to stay in the region to play the world's policeman and defend China's interests... Thereby assuring that the Chinese keep buying our bonds.
Is the threat of a Korean war being used to scare China into continuing to buy our bonds?
What do you guys think?
