Give it a year or two and The West can build new supply chains for its phones, iPads and microchips in friendlier countries. It will be a tough couple of years but we'll manage

China won't be able to find another "West" to sell the Trillions of dollars worth of stuff it produces to. So it won't be able to buy oil and wheat. That will be more than uncomfortable.
