Or so some people keep claiming again and again (they're commies after all and must fail). Maybe this is your lucky year.

Russia 2022 GDP $2.24 Trillion

California 2022 GDP $ 2.875 Trillion

Russia may have oil and nukes, but they don't own much beyond their borders. 

As for China... They are imploding a bit right now, and the promise of a middle class is rotting in the 1 billion+ apartments that are unfinished and worthless, taking with it the life savings of millions and millions of Chinese nationals. 

But keep pedaling the demise of the US... many seem to like reading about it.

That's pretty cool, but I'm not sure the world is ready for having beta sources floating around everywhere. Nickel-63 is a good choice, though. Wonder how they are separating out the nickel-63. I know how I'd look at doing it but I ain't telling.

Nikki Haley thinks China is coming for your brain
(Insert American brain joke)
Chinese Scientists Increasingly Leaving U.S.
A new study suggests the Department of Justice’s China Initiative investigations may have strengthened the foreign power by encouraging more scientists to relocate there.
When the Department of Justice announced its China Initiative in 2018, it said protecting national security was a goal.

But a new study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences suggests the initiative’s investigations may have caused valuable researchers of Chinese descent to leave the U.S. for China.

The paper, “Caught in the crossfire: Fears of Chinese-American scientists,” doesn’t confirm causation between the initiative and the departures. Its data, from 2010 to 2021, shows that the annual number of Chinese-descent scientists leaving the U.S. was steadily increasing before 2018.

But the trend greatly accelerated that year, the study found.

“The migration has increased during those 12 years, from 900 scientists in 2010 to 2,621 in 2021, with an accelerated departure rate (75 percent higher) in the last three years … coinciding with the launch of the China Initiative in 2018,” the authors wrote.

The Justice Department, which didn’t comment for this story, ended the initiative in early 2022. The authors wrote that there are questions over how much “the formal dropping of the ‘China Initiative’ name has been accompanied by substantive changes in the government’s practices that address the chilling effects.” (...)

NYT hypes China threat: They’re reading the internet
That Beijing is mining publicly available information is not new or surprising but fear mongering about it in Washington is good for business.

“Powerful countries collecting intelligence on other powerful countries (including their own allies) is a universal and banal feature of international relations, and it only becomes a danger to national security if the other country is a committed enemy,” said Jake Werner, who specializes in U.S.-China relations as a Research Fellow at the Quincy Institute. “China is not today a U.S. enemy, but feverishly hyping supposed threats from China is driving a confrontational approach to U.S.–China relations that risks turning China into such an enemy.”

Werner added, referring to the Times article, “treating China as an enemy encourages the exaggeration of differences between the two countries and blindness to similarities.”

Exaggerating those differences and engaging in China threat-inflation is also good for business, whether that means selling more newspapers, getting reelected, giving more money to the defense industry, and getting funding directly from it. Indeed, any company involved in “threat intelligence,” as Recorded Future apparently is, certainly has an interest in seeing that those threats exist, real or imagined.

not sure why the ccp would want to erase/hide this
blatant intentional censorship by the ccp  obviously destroys trust and credibility
not a wise move on their/xi's part

as i understand it one of the wrinkles is that micron pulled out of an IPO three days before scheduled
someone in power probably felt slighted/upset so micron gets investigated
probably more nuanced than that

there are legit analyses/conversations regarding this and similar topics
the china power project is pretty good (listen/read here)
 or paul triolo's work too (over at csis) he has a twitter account that pings some tech news as well
