written by reader Casey Research: China’s Most Powerful Weapon in the Coming Trade War (Rare Earth material?)

By warshipdocktell, February 23, 2018

Casey Research keeps teasing a material that China apparently has a monopoly over. This is a material that the US heavily relies on (I am guessing it is some type of Rare Earth material)

”The guidance systems on the Tomahawk cruise missiles Trump launched at Syria depend on special materials that China has a near monopoly on producing.”

”…China has a big card to play. It could restrict access to that special material I just mentioned—the material used to make advanced electronic components, like the Tomahawk cruise missile guidance system.”

”About six years ago, it restricted exports during a spat with Japan. The supply crunch caused a veritable mania in the special material’s industry.”

”It’s used to make crucial components for advanced electronics like iPhones, electric cars, flat-screen TVs, computers, and sophisticated military equipment—like guidance systems, drones, anti-missile systems, radars, and fighter jets.”

”The Chinese control around 90% of this special material’s supply. But there’s one tiny company outside of China that could see huge gains if the trade war with the US materializes. The Casey Research team just released a brand-new video presentation with the urgent details.”
