China

China is a country known to exist behind a veil of secrecy and iron curtain. Most of the happening in this single-party ruled nation goes unreported by the world media. But recently media reported of an ‘order’ of Politburo of Communist Party of China that oversees affairs of this ruling party. The order was given to party functionaries and government officials, which says that if they fail to stop any anti-government sloganeering, unrests and protests, they would lose their jobs and authority. Such a specific and panic order clearly indicates the possibility and reality of unrest against the ruling communist establishment.

Collapse of China’s economy is possible crisis that the world now faces. Experts say that the world economy is going through turmoil due to sharp decline in China’s growth indicators. It shows significance of China in global economy. China contributes almost 15% to world GDP. China alone gobbles 50% of global consumption for aluminium, copper and coal. Alternately China is also a leader in food consumption. On one hand China exports to many developed nations but on the other its imports from them which eventually fuels growth to these nations. But due to current economic problems, China has significantly reduced its import from the developed nations, which is hugely impacting their economies.

President Biden confrontational approach is pushing Russia closer to China
