China buys a lot of US debt, US doesn't buy Chinese debt, because China runs at a profit, US runs at a loss.
Their stock markets are not open to foreigners. Hong Kong was the exception, it was the way you could invest in China.
"The Shanghai Stock Exchange is the world's 4th largest stock market by market capitalization at US$4.0 trillion as of November 2018. Unlike the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, the Shanghai Stock Exchange is still not entirely open to foreign investors"
So there's a flow of capital, but it's the *other* way, *into* the USA. This EO is promulgating a false reality. It's for show, for PR, not for effect.
I wonder how it will affect Musk, and his Chinese car venture. I was reading up on Chinese electric buses, powered by Yinglong and its Lithium Titanate battery that can fully charge in 10 minutes to full (40AmpHrs @~2.25v) and discharged in 6 minutes (400A discharge) and runs all the way down to -30 degrees C, 20000 cycles, 25 years lifespan. 99.8% efficient, you can pierce it with a nail and it doesn't explode. It looks like the future to me and I'd never heard of it till I read an article on their electric buses and realized it was mainstream in China.
Best I can find in English is this guy playing with them:
Without Musk you might think their electric vehicle industry would be dead, but that's delusional. They have their own tech.
Last four years has confirmed the saying: "its always easier to destroy than to build".
Four years is all it took to go from "World Leader" to "Four Seasons Total Landscaping".
