"...Chinese exporters shun flagging dollar..."

This is the end product of continually sending American jobs overseas and signing onto moronic one-sided trade agreements which gives foreign exporters low or no trade restrictions for sending their goods into the USA while often allowing the foreigners to maintain them on American exports.

This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone...it's been a long time in the making...and now it's here.

Welcome to the brave new world order where the importance & relevance of the USA & its currency diminishes ever more swiftly over time.

Who do we have to thank for this not-so-wonderful situation?

Everyone - of all political stripes - who has allowed the practice of so-called "free trade" to overcome the smell test of fairness and quid-pro-quo equality.
