However, the market appears to see gold decrease in value ... that's odd, isn't it, when you have a buyer and industrial need. Another is oil ... oil is one of Russias greatest commodities. And there is no "decrease" in the demand for oil.


All commodity prices are down and oil consumption has been relatively flat since 2006, up less than 6%, versus a 16% increase the decade preceding that.

Step 3: start selling American debt


How does this hurt us? The debt instrument was already sold by us.


Step 4: watch as American government tries to get the public to invest in US debt.



We already 'invest' in our own debt, so much so that we are the largest holders of our own debt by a huge margin. It makes China's holdings look pitiful.


Step 5: watch America try to get other countries to buy debt, not too likely.


Why? United States debt is still very highly rated and offers a very secure return for the purchaser.


ETA: I see Slayer already posted this. Nice graph.

China owns less than 9% of our debt, we own over 60%.

Rumor is - in October Chinese Yen will become a new world reserve currency.

True or false, what say u ATS?


That was a possibility although clearly the concerns that people had about the Chinese economy that had kept that from happening are proving true. Although it would not have had much of an impact on the reserve market it would have let them get their foot in the door. It still could happen but, who would use it?

I'm not surprised about this really. The warning signs have been there for a long while now, what with their need to build ghost cities that are too expensive for anyone to move into all so they can prop up the construction industry. It was only a matter of time before the bottom fell out. It may cause the world to go into a recession, but I don't think it will be the big one.


They propped up their economy by continued borrowing for construction they didn't need .



" The Chinese economy has soared in the 21st-century much in the same way that a BRIC dosen't". ( paraphrased quote and pun intentional )

Why can't China do a quantitative easement to prop up it's market like the US is doing?

If china sells their debt, it would show they don't have faith in the US dollar. Trust me, that's gonna hurt.

Right. Compared to one arm borrowing and paying the other arm, it does look pitiful. That would be the same as my children and I each having our own company. We sell things to each other so we both owe each other money. I go bankrupt. I don't pay my kids companies. They still live in my house so I still have to look after them either way. I don't even bother looking at government owed to a different arm of the government debt, even though it is over 30%. It doesn't make sense and in the case of any sort of bankruptcy, it wouldn't matter.


Why? United States debt is still very highly rated and offers a very secure return for the purchaser.

Which country is in a position at this time to buy it? Which one would want to if China is selling?

There's more to it than patriotism. I also hope nothing happens that would hurt the US economically as our countries are financially linked!

They cannot afford to sell it all, it is a huge part of their future investment strategy.

It is however a reality and their debt holdings are not nearly as large and influential as people think they are.

The other countries on the list considering that China, to sell the instruments, would have to do so below par to entice a buyer. Who is going to pay the same price the Chinese paid when they can bend over the Chinese and get a bargain?

Didn't the u.s buy up its own debt with quantitative easing, one of the things ron Paul argued would damage America further because they would be printing like mad men to stave off a derivatives crash?

Think he mentioned $1tr due to mature....

Like I said, I hope your "could be's" are right and mine are wrong. Mine was only one of many possible scenarios.

He did, which is why I constantly advocate for a dollar linked to commodities to keep the government from uncontrollable printing and devaluing of currency.

Certainly the last point. If offered a choice to buy from the source or a third party at the same price what would you do?

Now if the third party was selling at a discount, the situation changes greatly.

That statement seems like a clue of sorts.

Discounted materials from a third party.....interesting.

How so?

In the case of Treasury Bonds the yields are so low that the ROI is almost nullified by selling below the purchase price. It would be a real 'fire sale'.

If we do not get our ridiculous spending under a bit more control we are looking more like Greece than China, however this is a ways off due to our much more massive economy.

China is the result of government interference in the market coupled with currency rigging and shady economic reporting.

If China was just looking to increase the RMB's value (only reason I can think of why they would sell en masse) then why wouldn't they sell the US debt at a discount? If other countries see this happening, why would they buy it? Who is in a position to buy it? Japan, Russia, and maybe a couple others?

Honestly, it wouldn't matter to me who was selling it. If I wanted to buy it and everyone had the same price, why would it matter if you bought from the source or a third party? What if that third party were offering different incentives to help you buy? There are honestly so many different scenarios that you can't say for sure, but neither can I.
