We all know of M.A.D form the Cold War. Mutually Assured Destruction was the name of the nuclear arms policy of the United States of America and The Soviet Union. If one power attacked the other with nuclear weapons, there would be such a devastating counter-attack that no one could imagine taking the initiative, just because of the consequences of total annihilation with atomic weaponry.
Today, we have China and America. They are each other's political counter part, each controls their own continent, and both extend their realm of influence to the rest of the globe. The odd thing is that are still engaged in extensive trade and service exchange. There exists no threat of war, or a nuclear holocaust for that matter, and the reason for that has been concluded. Both world powers are locked in M.A.E.D. Mutually Assured Economic Destruction. Both powers have become so dependent on each other, that if there would become a political crisis between them that would severe their economic ties, they would both be plunged in severe a economic crisis.
I guess we don't have to worry about nuclear weapons flying over our heads any time soon, and I want to put it into a simple phrase which I never thought I'd say and mean it.
Greed is good.
