Well, once again we see the Chinese investing in American economic infrastructure. Their portfolio is getting pretty big.


What do you think of the motives for this move? Protecting their trading partner, or something more subversive?

Steve,

This sort of investing has been happening on and off for a while.

A lot of companies in the US are owned by foreign nationals and we really don't have a clue.

That's the beauty of a publicly traded company; anyone can own the majority of stock.

I guess the same goes for private companies though.

Here's a post that is relevant to your thread: www.abovetopsecret.com...

In response to your questions:

I think the main motive is to gain more buying power for other countries to essentially rape the US of its resources.

We do it all the time in other parts of the world, now the US is "for sale to the highest bidder" as mentioned in the thread I posted.
