    At 12:40 you mention the flow of dollars from china to the USA.
    However, the entire point of this process is for china to demand US dollars to keep the dollar strong, not supply dollars.this is why the central bank prints tons of RNB.
    This seems confusing

    Great video, exceptionally well explained. It would be interesting to extend this by considering what are the disadvantages and advantages for the Chinese economy when they manage their exchange rate by buying US debt.
