You give China too much credit. Most conspiracy theories are easily defeated with Occam’s Razor. As someone who worked in APAC for over a decade, their countries are more prepared culturally and politically to deal with pandemics. The memory of SARS is still fresh in places like Hong Kong. The mask wearing culture and preventative measures have been prevalent since that time. The medical community and business community knows how to mobilize quickly and put in place preventative policies. Business Continuity Plans for corporations are true and tested and community feels accountability toward one another and public responsibility. Additionally, authoritarian governments (like Singapore) often make it easier to implement strict isolation quarantines, establish strict penalties for lying about one’s whereabouts and thus make it easier to identify and quarantine exposed population. Establishing containment rather quickly. US’ response has been reactionary instead of preventative and the policies put in places are activated after the fact. The global supply chain dependencies would also need to be re-evaluated if / when things return to normal.

OP, no one is questioning your employment credentials or criticizing your company. Your theory is rooted in racism and xenophobia. It is not our responsibility to accept it and then try and disprove it, treat it with equal consideration we’d give any generic economic theory (as SD1 said), or let it stand without responding. BAML1 provided a detailed and fact-based response to your post, and if you want to continue the discussion and be taken seriously, you should provide data to support your own perspective (not observations or correlations that do not show causation). The onus is on you to prove your theory. Beyond that, if you choose to post, you should also be prepared to deal with disagreement. Ideas like this are fueling increased outspoken racism against Asians in the US (you’ll see that if you read the news or even other posts in this bowl). We all need to understand the personal impact discussions such as this one can have on our neighbors and act accordingly.

Additionally to add more color, please look up BBC and Washington post articles that were published around biowarfare in Jan and Feb, there is no concrete evidence around how the virus began. Again the idea was to discuss this and not garner racism attacks...hope this helps!

What xenophobic theories are we talking about, BioWarfare programs are a reality...have you seen some of the posts out here? Given the panic around us right now who’s to say this panic is not what was triggered.

Think the idea was to create this chaos...you are missing the point and instead questioning my employment credentials...wondering how many recession cycles have you seen in your career...ones that are self generated vs real economic downturn

The question is not if people are dying or not, it is real no one is denying but how much of it is triggered as a bio war in response to trade war knowing collateral damage to China in this case especially knowing this is election year is something to discuss...this has got nothing to me being with baml or JPMC or line of business...

This is a theory based on stories floating around and nothing to do with my company! I am not a company’s spokesperson at this point. Not sure why you are making it a personal issue than a theoretical question and if you don’t think one way don’t leave a comment and entertain the post. Don’t bully people who ask a question

Racism? That is an outright accusation without any mention of racism in the post. If you read the post carefully it had to do with trade war and less to do with racism but an open ended question. If you have a problem with the post, don’t respond but I saw direct questioning of employment credentials and how such people are in baml? Tieing this post and then Spinning it off as racism is unfortunate. The whole idea of this forum is respect and choice to engage in questions. You cannot go to OP and bully them out of their own post.

Thanks SD that’s much more respectful response and in line with the forum guidelines instead of saying “stop being a baby” and “how is this person at Baml”. Asking a question on a forum here is not a problem, again your point 2 makes a judgement call on the person “your first thought”...I consider them as personal attacks without knowing anything about the poster. Good luck!
