  • The China Meltdown
    China has the most overextended and overheated economy in the world today. It is built on a ‘house of cards’ that could fold over the next five years. The Chinese economy is built totally on major resource assumptions, such as a constant and sufficient supply of oil, that are not consistent with the world market. China’s major asset is cheap labor, an asset that will become more expensive as the years pass and will follow the same patterns of Japan, Korea, Indonesia and other ‘cheap labor’ suppliers.

    In this program, Thomas Faranda will explain the factors that may bring about a ‘meltdown’ in China’s economy and global expansions. He will highlight the lack of resources and raw materials and the use rate of these critical components of growth. He will show the water crisis, the health and environment crisis that is killing hundreds of thousands of China workers each year. He will explain the oil crisis that will lead to one of three possibilities, a deal with Russia for oil, a purchase of an oil producing area of Russia or a military takeover of oil from Russia. He will show the insolvency of the banks of China as well as the artificially low rate of exchange of the yuan to the US dollar and what all of this means to China’s future.

  • CHINA …and YOUR Bottom Line!
    Nothing you have ever done has prepared you to compete against CHINA. Unlike any other competitor in history, CHINA can steal your customers with prices that are half of yours and still provide fast delivery and acceptable quality. China is a new type of competitor with significant competitive advantages, including:
    • A huge retail presence with customers such as Wal-Mart
    • Significant new BRAND names to attack global markets
    • Huge foreign investment and a market open to the world
    CHINA is light years ahead of other global competitors and CHINA is closing in on American industry at lightning speed.

    In this program, Thomas Faranda will explain CHINA’s Game Plan for the next decade, China’s potential for an internal meltdown and how to compete against China. He will use facts, examples and stories to show how China’s rapid growth will affect the world’s top economies.
