I just wondered: apart for the terraced fields, is rice-growing mechanized in Asia? Or is it still much hand-done?
One problem is that the plots are too small with multiple ownership. Even in China, mechanization is slow because of this.
I would say the slower the better. That way more people still have jobs in the countryside and don’t have to come to the city and be unemployed.
True, now that the tariff war must be affecting the economy too.
Yeah. I wonder how long we will have to deal with that Moron on Pennsylvania Avenue.
He has just slapped another $200 billion tariff on China.
He is unlikely to be impeached; so may have to wait until term ends.
Hopefully. But he may be re-elected… 😦
That’s too bad.
Believe it or not, he still has a strong percentage of approval. We’ll see how mid-term elections go, but I am not optimistic.
Won’t be surprised. many people like the immediate economic results and the good feeling of being “great” again.
Basically if US lives on borrowing ( immediate gratification to the extreme instead of saving) then then they will have increasing deficits, with other countries. He is generating fake news too, for instance, on GDP growth / Employment – claiming every immediate good effects for himself.
He has been advised that China can kill US if we don’t export medicine like antibiotics to the US. Let’s see how this plays out.
Without resorting to such extreme measures, one should remind the moron that China holds the major part of UD debt. If China decides to sell it on the international market the value of US debt will crumble…
China will hurt themselves too if they sell the US debt. The other way is to restrain Chinese tourists to the US.
Any way will be a problem. This guy is a danger to mankind.
I agree entirely. In the older days of America dark history, he would have been gunned down.
