    Clinton Urges China to Keep Buying U.S. Treasury Securities

    Bloomberg.com: U.S.

    Its pathetic. The US asks China to finance their overspending, and threatens them to buy US treasury security.. Who wants to do that anyways? I think China is smarter than to buy worthless papers.

    The language Clinton uses just confirms my dislike for her. She is a republican neo-con hiding in democrats clothing.

    [quote=Clinton]we are truly going to rise or fall together.[/b]

    Who is she joking... The US economy is the one in trouble, China is still growing by 5-6%..

    Who is that woman kidding? Herself? Its not in US interests if they cannot finance their own deficits, to fund deficits, and stimulate deficits and debts.

    What a moron. The Chinese are making dumb decisions paying too much of the US debt, the US eventually have to default all that debt or go bankrupt, and when they do China will end up getting slapped with the bill.

    Safe investment to buy US debt?



    Its all so pathetic. US hustles China.. Geez..

    I'd find it extremely hard to think that China would continue doing this. Not unless the securities are backed by real US properties in case the US defaults on notes.

    Economically it's stupid to invest in more U.S. reserves at this time, but politically it's not. For all of the people who cry foul on China's humanitarian issues, and wonder why the U.S. won't step up to it by placing sanctions on imports, this is the very reason. The U.S. is China's economic slave, it owes China BIG TIME.

    China will continue to buy the teasury bonds in order to maintain this kind of relationship. The day it stops, there will be serious tensions between the two countries. Besides, who wouldn't want to maintain their strangle hold on the U.S.? The complex interdependence that has developed between these two nations is the lynch pin to the whole world economy, and in my view it is a dangerous arrangement.

    The paper isn't worthless, and China has a stake in the US. If the US tanks, so does all their "investment".

    Don't count America out so fast. You folks tried to write our obituary during the Carter years too.

    Where will they put their money? Europe? LOL. We get a little financial cold, you folks end up in intensive care.

    Who is China selling a large portion of their goods to? Americans. Our market dries, so does theirs, and China has to create 25 million jobs annually.

    Who will pick up the slack? The EU? LOL.

    Clinton a neocon? LOL.

    Just as a reminder because people tend to overstate how much of our debt China holds: They own 6% of our public debt. That's it.

    6%?

    How much longer until they own us? Is it kinda like an installment plan?

    After we take all of China's money, can we borrow more of it to pay them back? How's that gonna work?

    Can we file for bankruptcy (sp?) and just leave them holding the empty moneybag?

    Dont you understand? Thats what the US government is trying to do now, take on as much debt as they can before the US economy collapses and have to default all their debt.. Thats Obamas stimulus plan, to rid the US of all their debt, by taking on more debt to run the country completely bankrupt.

    Then the US can sell their souls to get back in good company with all the other countries of the world, after they drag them down with them.

    Re: Clinton Urges China to Keep Buying U.S. Treasury Securities

    There is nothing wrong with other nations purchasing Treasury Securities just like there is nothing wrong with sovereign wealth funds in other nations buying U.S. companies. Basically, when China purchases Treasury Securities they are purchasing a stake in the future of the American economy. Thus the last thing they would ever want to see is the American economy fail because that hurts them too. The same is true with trade. China would be in a hell of a shape if we quit buying the goods they produce, thus they have a compelling interest for our economy to grow so we can continue to purchase their goods.

    If you have buy a small interest in a company, then you want that company to succeed, otherwise you could lose your money. Similarly, if you have a store, you don't want your customers to lose their jobs, because you will feel the pain too. Nations are no different.
