#1 The 2008 financial crisis started when sub-prime mortgages went into default and banks and other financial institutions started taking losses.

That's a weird way of saying "criminal elites screwed us all over, deliberately, spread mass suffering, and not a single one of them went to prison despite committing multiple very serious felonies."

#2 not a single one of them went to prison

The mortgage loans were mandated by congress (i.e Dems) and then the crooks and con men moved in.

#4 Waiting for Biden to bail-out China 'because we must so save the global economy'.

What happens to the global economy when the US starts defaulting on our debts?

#5 assuming the $300 billion really is all the debt there is.

Also assuming Evergrande is the only one doing it. The problem with the 2008 banking crisis is that all large banks were "investing" in liar loans and derivatives. In the end no one knew who was solvent and who was pretending.

#6 The mortgage loans were mandated by congress (i.e Dems) and then the crooks and con men moved in.

The Dems in Congress, and many if not most of their Republican colleagues, were the crooks and con men. Remember, the mortgage meltdown happened on W's watch.

#8 Evergrande needs to be seen in the context of Xi Jinping's move to consolidate his own power in China and return that country to a purer form of communism than what was practiced by his predecessors. He is cracking down on big tech and other big companies because he sees them as a growing threat to the CCP's power. Today's WSJ had an article that told of Xi's concern when Twitter closed Trump's account. You can well imagine that he would not want to allow anything like that to happen to him. If I was a big time investor, I would be looking to minimize my exposure to Chinese stocks.

#11 I'd expect the short-term consequences to be limited. Like Japan's, China's economy can be classified as managed capitalism, with a cadre of self-important morons doing the equivalent of flipping switches on a panel. The difference in China is that anyone who gets in the way can end up in a gulag. If the Chinese property bubble bursts, we can expect to see many years of doldrums similar to the 90% top to bottom Japanese real estate crash that took 20 years to play out. But the odds of a Black Monday type crash in infinitesimal. What China does have going for it is that it still has a bunch of catching up to do on the tech frontier, whereas Japan was all caught up, but lacked the werewithal to extend that frontier in a way that made a dent on economic stats. Whereas roughly 1/2 of China has a per capita (that's household income/number of people in a household) income of less than 1,000 yuan per month.

#12 Goldman Sachs issues a 'dire warning' on China's property sector, expects the Chinese government to bail it out.

#13 There is no knock-off effect. US investors have no exposure to Chinese property - by order of the CCP. Didn't make any money off their bubble and won't lose any money now that Mao Xi-Tung wants to pop that bubble.

#14 Can we, FINALLY, wean ourselves off of the toxic China-teat once and for all? Good riddance.
