    How would that work exactly? I'm only asking because it makes no sense.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    By selling our debt to nations with low currency value and instable markets...

    Again, that makes no sense. Selling T-bills to some other country isn't going to affect anything. It's not the country holding our debt that is the issue. It's the debt itself. Jeez.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    The debt itself is indeed a major part of the problem... but there is indeed a bigger picture, though not are able or willing to understand it.

    Maybe you could help me, then. Please do tell how a country buying a T-Bill from China will harm the U.S. I'm all ears. Unless, of course, you have no clue.

    Yeah... you're one of those contrarians that doesn't want to debate, just to hurl stupidity around. Why bother with you, from what I have seen, you think that you are the man and have offered very little to this site or to discussion in general. Tell me, do you represent your signature only our is there a valid reason that I should entertain your hostility and immaturity for another post?

    Fortunately, dragons are mythical creatures of quite limited aerodynamic ability and will crash if they tried any such thing.

    That, and the problem the US has is not "outsourcing", but too much government borrowing to finance totally unconstitutional public pacification programs.

    If the greedy workers hadn't demanded more wages than the global market would bear, this wouldn't be an issue.
