E China PPP, Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank & Powerhouse Economics

The AIIB is not limited to lending in Asia, and its new Strategy on Financing Operations in Non-Regional Members specifies such financing must benefit Asia by supporting cross-country connectivity or renewable energy generation, and in members that are “geographically proximate to and closely economically integrated” with Asia. 

The AIIB is not the Belt and Road, but it does intersect with the BRI in many ways. But it also seeks cooperation with the United States. But this nation appears to be so fossilized politically, that it simply is unable to see the obvious benefits of cooperation at this time. But it would likely make for a better, more peaceful world if the USA did throw in with the Asian Infrastructure and Investment Bank.

Update 2: If Donald Trump does not grasp the economic concept of purchasing power parity he will embarrass himself and our nation. We trail China in ppp and that is a crucial weakness facing the USA in a trade war with China.

Update 1: purchasing power parity coupled with a manufacturing base 5 times larger than the USA means China can make what it needs. We cannot and therefore, we could lose a trade war.

Unfortunately, it's not a surprise that China is the strongest. America is still a power to be reckoned with, but they are no longer the world leader.

We have lost real security, global respect, and traded it for military hardware.
