I would not be surprised to see this happen before the end of this year. And then they will control the world’s largest chip manufacturer. https://techwireasia.com/2021/02/the-dominance-of-the-worlds-largest-chipmaker-tsmc/ And Biden and the Dems will just twiddle their thumbs… Iran is also moving forward again with nuclear bombs. https://www.reuters.com/world/middle-east/uk-france-germany-state-grave-concern-over-iran-nuclear-work-2021-07-06/ And will wait to see what Putin does next… He’s got the EU pipeline in the bag (for future leverage), but he will want more, I’m sure… This cyber/ransomware attack crap scares me, too. We are all so dependent on technology for everything, and it would cripple us if they killed our communications networks, incl our monetary transaction systems. Markets would crash, for sure, but we wouldn’t even know the extent of what is actually happening. And this morning markets are not looking good. 10 yr yield drops, bitcoin, growth stocks, value, everything… Supposedly driven by new covid fears, which I don’t totally buy, with all the vaccinations happening here. Might be bad in some other countries, but that should drive even more money to here. Eventually though, all this free money and low interest rates will end. All this could have quite a dampening effect on EV buying, too.
