Busted: Bankers and The Global Economy

China Considering Dumping US Investments

The U.S. dollar continues to slide in value as out of control spending continues. China, the largest holder of U.S. debt, is considering dumping two-thirds the dollar reserves that it holds, to the tune of about $3.04 trillion.

According to a report from China’s Xinhua news agency, a member of the Chinese central bank’s monetary policy committee is recommending that Beijing reinvest its foreign exchange reserves. Other Chinese financial authorities confided at a forum in Beijing that China’s current U.S. holdings are too high. The governor of China’s central bank has said that China’s foreign exchange reserves are excessive and that Beijing should begin to diversity its vast pool of dollars.

While American corporations have led the world in economic growth for more than a century, China’s government has had enough business sense to become the world’s second largest economic power. China is on target to overtake the U.S. economy.

Central bankers and many investors want to unplug the dollar as the international mainstay of finance. China wants its currency to play a more dominant role in the global economy, dumping the dollar (treasuries) as a viable investment, since the Federal Reserve is addicted to printing money, which further devalues the dollar to keep the current global money scene afloat.
