Memo to China: You Look Silly When You Threaten to Dump Treasuries (Not sure this is the case. If one understands MMT, all well and good but most don't. Monetarists think that China dumping treasuries would be a disaster for the US. So it may work as a threat. In the larger context, many countries are already cutting exposure not only to the dollar but also to the Western-dominated financial system that is being weaponized. Over time this will have an effect in reducing Western power.)
