20190524 - DCF of Japan's modernization - failing to replicate Anglo domination
Since the French American Charles Le Gendre's relentlessly reckless efforts to turn Japan into US's proxy for invading China and occupying Taiwan before 1895, Japan did not gain at all, but ended to be killed and vaporized like cockroaches, or meatballs for that matter, by its American master. Neither had US been much profitable in its war-additive tradition by drumming Japan into a US proxy war machine.
Wars, hot or cold, have been good for US to transfer multil-national fortunes into the hands of a few US haves by loading national debt, as indicated, the Star Wars in 1981, to fool USSR into its economic collapse. In reality, the real reason for USSR collapse was foolishly abandoning agriculture and light industries. Blame Mongols for embedding their nomad non-farming tradition into Slavics.
US's playing Taiwan Korea Iran or any card wont slow down China economic development. Chinese know, therefore CCP knows, that any war casualty breeds forever-lasting hatred. CCP has supporting Taiwan Independencers since 1945 to disturb KMT's ruling, which now backfires because mainlanders have been brainwashed to hate Taiwan status, which is the greatest obstacle for integration, and the best crack for US to stick its knife between China and Taiwan.
Therefore, China will transparently contain Taiwan and engage aggressors way off Taiwan coast beyond first island chain. In fact, Taiwan Strait will be a natural DMZ and leisure area, where US sailors will be welcome but required to enter in bathing suits, shades and sun screen, in any war attempted by US and its four Anglo white supremacist allies.
China understands best that it benefits most to maintain current Taiwan status, because the only valuable resource in Taiwan is human capital which is easily driven to US once military act is taken on Taiwan soil, no matter how much US likes to destabilize the balance with its heavy hand carrot-stick deployment in Taiwan.
Hong Kong and Macaus alone have served very well for laundrying corruption money out of China to be stashed in US, canada, Austraila, England, Switzerland, etc. China does not need Taiwan to be another corrupt money laundry exit, but needs Taiwan to maintain its technology powerhouse status.
Had Japan done its due diligence well to arrive at a sound DCF/IRR spread back in 1800s or prior to 1938, especially incorporating the cashflow impact from two atomic bombs, Japan would be a happier and younger vicinity today. Once vaporized for inexperience. Twice vaporized for stupidity.
