The disappearance of Chinese listings from the U.S. could have tremendous
financial consequences. When ranked by value, the biggest 200 Chinese
American Depository Receipts have a market capitalization of $951
billion, according to July calculations by investment bank Macquarie.

Sounds like a false worry.
The firms aren't going away, just a place to trade the shares.
That won't exactly rock the world economy.

For those firms which have only a single listing location, I can see
a lot of unhappy campers among those owning shares which are suddenly private.
It's not something you want, of course, but a good rule of thumb is never
to own shares in a firm you wouldn't be OK with owning as a private shareholder.
Never go into a room that you'd dislike getting locked into.
