    All reports on rare earth metal for the past weeks, I have not seen any words on it from Chinese governments. It actually was stirred up by US media first, and chinese social media seems to pick it up afterward. Rare earth metal are not rare, and the production is not irreplaceable. I can hardly see restricting exporting can cause any long term effect. Maybe to those mines or processing companies pop up on the opportunity (to capture the market Chinese left) they would face difficulties when chinese export re-open (if ever restricted) like after 2013 (all but one US rare earth mine escaped bankruptcy after china's initial restriction and later re-open of rare earth mineral exports.

    Yes there are reserves outside china and also in the US but I believe the mine in California was closed. It'll cost the US billions of dollars in the process of mining on thier own or buying from another country. So yes they'll be fine for the medium term but in the long term it's bad because China has more reserves than Vietnam and Australia combined.

    Alfred Wan That’s why China is so polluted, it has very poor environmental laws. Having worked in both mining and oil, pulp and paper industry, Canada has strict pollution regulations, especially on the West Coast of Canada, you pollute a Salmon bearing river, and you are in for some serious grief. Remember Salmon rivers come under Federal Laws. The First totally closed loop pulp and Paper Mill was on Vancouver Island, Federal Law says you can’t release effluent into any Salmon bearing stream or Estuary. China doesn’t give a dam. It even feeds babies Melamine contaminated food, oh yes we know.

    @Aaron Miller The thousands of Chinese immigrating to America are a side effect of the affluence created by the government controlled economy, like it or not, that system has pulled more Chinese out of poverty than there are people in America, further, I suspect America will still be buying from China far into the future because you don't get to decide, when the 25% tariffs trickle down, yeah, that's always the part that does trickle down, and the wages don't rise correspondingly, the 1% will buy from China again, they will probably just quietly remove the country of origin tags or some such but they _must_ have their margins, that's capitalism and oligarchies for you.

(worst mistake since usa decided to go to war with 'little vietnam.') especially the 'spying' excuse has no evidence. usa itself is the worst menace in terms of spying, according to ed snowden. china is much more determined to now leap so much farther ahead as it will make everything it needs in-country/domestically, as china has the enviable status of possessing unlimited talent/manpower/materials/tech/money. china is deadly serious now in its intention to turn usa into a weak or even negligible rival. (even global companies are now apprehensive about doing biz in usa, which is a far worse prospect for the usa than u.s./global companies moving from china to low-quality inexperienced manufacturing locales like india/philippines with lazy undisciplined workers, etc., lol.) the dragon is awakened, and all thanks to the three stooges (trump, bannon, bolton).

    Aiden W why everyone blame China for this trade deficit, first Americans like cheap stuff and cheap labor, if they don’t make in China, it would make at else where. Most likely south east Asia. Second China is the world largest goods maker, because it can access to variety of materials and labor, the government provides stable environment for foreign companies. Third, China join WTO in 2001, if you look at the past, India for instance, they have a lot of restrictions. Cambodia and Vietnam, their politic is not very stable. Cambodia is still at civil war. Vietnam wasn’t very friendly with USA. Philippine is a island, so when it come to material is very limited. Africa people are killing each other at that time. So China took that chance to become the worlds largest good maker. Now USA uses that excuse to say there is a trade deficit between China. The world large maker on goods. What do you expect. Four, trump said China steal their jobs. USA company are too greedy, if they didn’t try to maximize the profits and move the company to a third world country for cheaper labor. But If those item were manufacture locally. Its not very economical. When you operate a company you have to find the cheapest supplier. it will lower the risk, cause some time no one buys. Those company will keep moving around the country with a cheap labor. why you blame China for steal the job.

    @tomato totato Well, a video posting website is way easier to replace thn a set of supply chain, not to mention a complex web of supply network. So its quite funny you think china can be ditched without a tsunami of disaster hitting the global economy, but instead its impossible to replace a website. Numbers dont lie, but you can manipulate how it is being present, like the trade deficit thing.

    honest like Japan kowtow to US in 1980s? Chinese Communist Party used this Old Chinese 勿谓言之不预也(WuWeiYanZhiBuYuYe) on People's Daily (party's flagship newspaper like Pravda) 3 times only in history , it means Don't Say We Didn't Warn You(tone is like saying 'Sayeth Naught We Didn't Warneth Thee') as an ultimatum to enemy, after saying this specific diplomatic wording then China counter-attacked socalist India army in 1962, communist Soviet army in 1969, communist Vietcong army in 1979.

    @Jose Paolo Cruz China supplies about 20% of the world's supply but that's partly because many mining companies wouldn't produce or even expoler for the resources because China was producing so inexpensively, once China stops exporting the exploration will start and the mines will re-open but it will still take time to replace the Chinese supply.

  120. Jose Paolo Cruz

    Not the whole earth. They would keep on mining these materials and use these for their own technological advancements, and most likely, still sell to other countries. It might send the US back to the stone age though since it looks like China only has the US in it's sights.

    @Aiden W What did you mean by 'horrible trading partner'? Can you show some facts rather than empty talk? The US violates free trade agreement under WTO, the infamous protectionism could destroy the US. The US banned Huawei just because it is unable to compete with it, so Trump plays dirty. It is insane to start trade war to China, Mexico, EU, Japan, India, Russia and the world. The US is now a public enemy of the world, another aggressive empire, another Nazi Germany.

    China is a horrible trading partner and the world knows it. They have a 420 billion dollar trade deficit with the USA. They are fighting back because they don't want to lose all that money.

    The funny part is China is NOT the only one who mines there’s “rare earth metals” it’s not a big deal. Australia, Brazil, USA, etc. also mine these same metals and more mining locations are being found 🤷🏻‍♂️

    @Rongrong Chen Also rare earth is not a single type of minerals, some deposit has higher concentration of various kind, while some lack the most used rare earth. So even if "rare earth" can be found anywhere, its not exactly able to meet your demand, both quantity and quality.

    China has both the mineral deposits and the world class refinery operation and technique. The extract from Australia and US need to be sent to China for refinement(the US company is currently paying 15% tariffs to get that done).
