I mean, the cough was china's. Most of the big economic problems right now come from covid shenanigans one way or another, but the one suffering the worst is china, mostly because of how retarded their methods are.
The shit china does is heavy handed. They delegate everything to smaller local governments who are more corrupt than a small african nation at its worst. But their policy is always big, blunt, broad. It's like someone who is a "big picture guy" who has no sense of nuance but insists their idea should be evenly applied all.
Is people who should be running a small island population instead in charge of something far too big to comprehend, and then treating it like a small island population anyway.
