The real resistance

The US still has the power to print the global reserve currency, but the power is diminished when the supply chain is not in its control.

China controls the supply of medical supplies while the demand is global. They won't just demand $. Everyone is offering it. They'll demand respect and use it as a bargaining chip to shape trade policy.
<Wears tinfoil hat>: Trump has stopped calling it a china virus.

The US Government's lazy policy to print money out of a problem instead of solving it, may not work as well this time as it did in 2008. It might work if we give a larger dose, but the problems are becoming resistant to the antidote.

Every country needs to be self-sufficient to some extent to have the flexibility to shape its own future. Some critical keep-the-lights-on should be done in house.
