    Yeah, you're Right I should have said loaned them some money.

    Good evening, MMC.

    I have been in back-to-back meetings since noon today, but I thought I had read somewhere that we were giving them something like $34 billion dollars from us alone. If the IMF is also giving them money, who benefits, and what are they going to use that money for? Billions of dollars could sure be put to use here, IMO, considering that our infrastructure alone is one area that is badly in need of repair. I hope I'm not sounding skeptical or selfish, but how do we benefit from fighting Russia over the Ukraine, if the people of Ukraine want to join Russia?

That is the downside (property taxes) of real estate. China must continually be on the lookout for good USA investments that hold value but don't eat up the principal. If you just sell the dollars, you create a surplus in the market and lower the value of those dollars, so some good judgement is required.
    The properties being purchased are owned by banks and big investors, so I doubt we'll benefit from the sales of same. If you or I would sell our personal homes to them, then at least we might benefit. I recall when Japan was on a roll some years back, and they were also buying US properties at that time. I don't remember receiving any money from the sale of the Pebble Beach Country Club property in California, but the owners of same did, and more power to them! Isn't the world of high finance fascinating!

    Greetings, DaveFagan.

    Well, I thought we were trying to get others to pitch in.....and add to what we were giving.
