Decoupling: Hilarious




Decoupling! Hahahaha… I have raged and raged about the lunacy of decoupling. The export economies of Japan and China are about to learn that you never ever put all your eggs in one basket. The market charges really really high tuition.

The chart of Japanese exports is from the excellent post Don’t Mention Decoupling in Asia over at EconompicData.

Great post. Long term, China will be the place to invest but you're right, they are about to learn how worthless our paper really is.
