I am not up on all the ins and outs of FTZ, but if they are coming here to make things and sell things outside of local, state, and federal laws on their land given to them and now under their country of origin's laws, then this is very problematic. Just having all this new workforce artificially created hurts the local community. Will they be selling cheap cigarettes, alcohol, gambling? I bet short sighted Americans will gladly go their to save 70%.


You should really read up on FTZ, as everything you just posted is non-factual and doesn't represent reality...it's not how FTZ work.

If you think you can't wage a war economically or by using economic systems that you cannot be called to account that's crazy. What do you think economic blockades are? Do you suppose that if we set up a food cartel or an energy cartel and had wiped out our competition through bribes/kickbacks or thuggish means that it would be wrong of the people so injured to not rise up and try to correct the imbalance of power?

I have warned since the 1980s when they put in Nafta and then Gatt that we were headed for major trouble. China couldn't target a missile to any accuracy until Clinton gave them our targeting technology. So, they have us by the short-hairs so to speak via monopolizing manufacturing through slave labor and they have a bulls eye on us through weapons. They have moved into our ports, cities, and eventually will control all life here, but it's not war, it's just global economics. Eventually we will all be licking the boots of the NWO, and people who think it's just economics and not warfare will be licking right beside those of us who know it is warfare. I hope you learn your Mandarin Chinese very soon.

________________________________________________________________________________________
Modern Americans are very complacent but it has much to do with the fiber optic webs of control being weaved within and outside the body of man. The human atrocities alone should have severed our ties with this crazy nation (CHINA) but money is more important than life and we allow it. We feed in to it with out fail. The idea of stopping everything is just too crazy to consider. Stop paying your bills. Stop giving the government money..u say they will just take it..then stop making it..stop going to work..just stop! We need not be afraid of letting go of this old, tired broken and unfixable system. There is another way..a better way..a better system. We will get there someday soon but many will more than likely leave in the coming days..so enjoy every moment you have with your loved ones...and learn as much as you can about Morgellons....

China Bank Moves to Buy U.S. Branches

By LINGLING WEI

CHICAGO—China's biggest bank signed an agreement that would make it the first Beijing-controlled financial institution to acquire retail bank branches in the U.S., though regulators could still block the deal.

Under the deal, Industrial & Commercial Bank of China Ltd., by some measures the world's largest bank, agreed to acquire a majority stake in Bank of East Asia Ltd.'s U.S. subsidiary. ICBC will pay $140 million for an 80% stake. Bank of East Asia, which is a publicly traded company based in Hong Kong, has a total of 13 branches in New York and California. ICBC and Bank of East Asia have talked to U.S. regulators about the deal, these people said.

China's largest bank, Industrial & Commercial Bank of China Ltd., is the first Chinese bank to acquire a U.S. deposit-taking bank. Ken Brown explains why it could be the start of big expansions by Chinese financial institutions in the U.S.

The move represents what could be the start of big expansions by Chinese financial institutions in the U.S.

Signed in Chicago on the last day of Chinese President Hu Jintao's state visit to the U.S., the move, comes as both Beijing and Washington are calling for greater commercial ties between the two countries.

Both Beijing and Washington are eager to showcase their willingness to strengthen the business ties between the two countries, despite the many issues that will continue to hinder the relations. China is prodding the U.S. to ease its export controls, especially those involving high-technology products, aimed at its biggest economic rival. The U.S. is asking for more Chinese purchases of made-in-America goods and services.

The transaction is expected to be carefully scrutinized by U.S. regulators, including the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S., known as CFIUS, because of the state-controlled nature of the Chinese bank. A previous deal by a Chinese bank to acquire a bank in the U.S. was rejected by regulators. "It is going to be a long process," a person familiar with the matter said.

If ICBC's deal to acquire Bank of East Asia's U.S. subsidiary goes through, Americans could walk into the retail branches, open check and savings accounts and, most significantly for many investors, open yuan accounts to trade the currency.

ICBC, as the bank is known, is based in Beijing and is 70% owned by the Chinese government. It has become increasingly comfortable venturing outside its home markets, which still account for the bulk of its profit. Last year, ICBC got into the broker-dealer business in the U.S. with a symbolic $1 purchase of the U.S. brokerage unit of Fortis Securities, controlled by France's BNP Paribas SA. That deal didn't subject ICBC to tight U.S. regulatory restrictions on foreign purchases of retail-banking operations.

U.S. regulators often demand that foreign banks prove they are adequately supervised in their home markets and have proper antimoney-laundering procedures in place before allowing them to set up retail operations, legal experts say.

The agreement was signed at the Hilton Chicago as part of a slew of pacts announced by roughly 60 U.S. and Chinese companies at a giant "signing ceremony" organized on Friday by China's Commerce Ministry and its U.S. counterpart.

Industrial & Commercial Bank of China on Friday signed an agreement to acquire a majority stake in Bank of East Asia.

"The timing of this is not accidental. They're testing us. If we want concessions on business practices from China, we're going to have to let them buy assets in the U.S."

Editors' Deep Dive: Expanding China's Banking Borders


Both Beijing and Washington are eager to showcase their willingness to strengthen the business ties between the two countries, despite the many issues that will continue to hinder the relations. China is prodding the U.S. to ease its export controls, especially those involving high-technology products, aimed at its biggest economic rival while the U.S. is asking for more Chinese purchases of made-in-America goods and services. The contract-signing event in Chicago was hailed as "the most important event" in conjunction with President Hu's visit, according to officials in the Chinese delegation.

The move by ICBC underscores the desire by Chinese banking executives to transform their strength into a greater presence globally, as Chinese banks have emerged from the global financial crisis largely unscathed. Their hope is to better support Chinese companies and guard against losing customers to U.S. and European banks that already have networks world-wide. Meantime, Beijing has encouraged Chinese companies to expand overseas in recent years. In light of the huge foreign-exchange reserves China has, Beijing has encouraged its banks to invest more overseas.

In a speech at the event Friday, Chen Deming, China's Commerce Minister, said one of the priorities for the Commerce Ministry is to "encourage our companies to go out." He pointed to the vast foreign-exchange reserves held by China, saying that "we should turn those reserves into capital and assets." Otherwise, the reserves could decline in value because of inflation, Mr. Chen said.

While China's resource and construction companies have moved aggressively into new markets, its financial institutions generally have been slow to follow.

Bank of East Asia is led by prominent Asian banker Sir David Li. Mr. Li drew unwanted attention to himself in the U.S. and Hong Kong in 2007 when the former board member of Dow Jones became the target of an insider-trading case involving News Corp.'s buyout bid for Dow Jones. Mr. Li later agreed to pay $8.1 million to settle the civil charges. Mr. Li couldn't be reached for comment.

So far, most Chinese investments in the U.S. financial sector have involved the Chinese taking passive, minority stakes in firms such as Blackstone Group LP and Morgan Stanley. Taking a majority stake in Bank of East Asia is a change of tactic for ICBC

At the same time, Bank of East Asia is no stranger to ICBC. It sold a 70% stake in its Canadian operations to ICBC last year and all of its six branches in Canada have since been rebranded ICBC Canada. Bank of East Asia has 13 branches in the U.S., concentrating in New York and California—two states that boast the largest numbers of Chinese immigrants. The bank formed its U.S. banking subsidiary in 2001 through the acquisition of Grand National Bank, of Alhambra, California.

The deal, if approved by U.S. regulators, would allow ICBC to gain relatively quick access to American depositors. Right now, ICBC has one branch in New York, but it isn't involved in the retail-banking business. Bank of China Ltd. is the only mainland Chinese bank that has a retail license in the U.S. market. The bank, also state owned, has two branches in New York and one in Los Angeles. It recently has started allowing American customers to buy and sell the Chinese currency through its U.S. branches.

The decision by Bank of China is the latest move by China to allow the yuan, whose value is still tightly controlled by the government, to become an international currency that can be used for trade and investment.

Chinese banks have encountered uphill battles to gain access to the U.S. market in the past. For instance, it took almost two years for ICBC to get the approval from the Federal Reserve to open its New York branch, which has so far focused on commercial lending. That green light was given shortly before President George W. Bush's trip to Beijing for the Summer Olympics in 2008.

Some Chinese banks' bids to acquire U.S. counterparts have been rejected. A case in point is China Minsheng Banking Corp. In 2008, Minsheng, China's first private bank and a midsize lender, agreed to take a 9.9% stake in San Francisco lender UCBH Holdings Inc., the holding company for United Commercial Bank. When the bank ran into trouble during the financial crisis over bad loans and accounting errors, Minsheng tried to buy it. U.S. regulators rejected the move because of restrictions on foreign investment in U.S. banks, according to people familiar with the matter. Regulators in late 2009 shut down United Commercial Bank and Minsheng had to write off its $130 million investment.

On January 31, 2008, Wayne State University opened its new Confucius Institute, becoming the second one in Michigan (the first is Michigan State's).[56][57]

On March 26, 2009, San Diego State University unveiled the Confucius Institute for southern California and Baja California. Zhou Wenzhong, the Chinese Ambassador to the U.S., and the Chairman of Xiamen University attended the unveiling ceremony at SDSU, .[58]

On September 11, 2009, The University of Washington and Seattle Public Schools were proud to establish The Confucius Institute of the State of Washington, the first statewide Confucius Institute.

On November 5, 2009, The University of Michigan celebrated the opening of its Confucius Institute.

A second Confucius Institute in Alabama is being planned for the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa.

Who said Bush never planed anything? He set up your local Confucius Centers to trin you in the Communist way of life as he sold the USA off to China so the foundations for youe new way of life as a slave to China would be made easy.

China is going to be the bankers of and the enforcers in the new America. This is all being set up as we speak.

The FEMA Camps are real.

The economic collapse is imminent even Donald Trump is aware of it.

We had better hope Ron Paul gets elected in 2012 or the republic will have its final nail driven into its national coffin and we'll be buried by Chinese pallbearers.

Hmm Well if American (Zones) are up for sale Tax free not under American law Jurisdiction Perhaps I will lobby to get me one of them.

Really this is the evolution of corporations. We have a corporation in our area that can dictate when they will allow meter staff on public roads. They own the old expo grounds on the river and turned it into a public apartments pubs clubs a law unto themselves.

If these Zones are being allowed you should be able to apply for one for your own land and if denied you can sue for discrimination
Just a thought.

What's wrong with China buying assets in the US??? The US did the reverse, and is still doing it, in China as well. It's called globalization


As for Confucius centres...you do realize it's a philosophy centre, right? What's wrong with that? I thought the US is so great because it allows freedom to follow your own path as long as u don't hurt others. If you believe it's wrong to go to such centres, it's also wrong to to a Mosque or a Christian church. What gives you the right to tell others what they should believe??

Too many people riding the paranoia fail-train

Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to focus on Confucius Institutes and assess the applicability of theories of leadership and knowledge sharing to multinational organizations and worldwide networks. Growth of multinational trade and decrease in international tension have facilitated the globalization of both profit-seeking and non-profit organizations. Changes in economic and political environment have also blurred the divide in management practices between these organizations. Design/methodology/approach: The research applies recent theoretical developments to analyze leadership and knowledge sharing of the highly successful Confucius Institutes. Operational similarities and differences between this global learning organization and multinational businesses are evaluated. Findings: Many similarities exist between the operations of the Confucius Institutes and multinational businesses. For both, strategic goals are achieved through the promotion of global expansion and the management practices of distributed leadership and knowledge sharing. The study makes clear the successful application of distributed leadership to a worldwide network. The Confucius Institutes reflect the cultural and social changes in China, combined with influences of global cultures. Findings suggest that distributed leadership is a suitable management style for coping with variant cultural and socio-political conditions globally. This leadership style, combined with a knowledge-sharing network, is also suitable for the situational variables encountered in making thousands of decisions across hundreds of global locations by both learning institutions and business organizations. Originality/value: The paper explores a relatively new area of the similarities and differences between global non-profit and business networks as learning organizations. The study is of value to both those managing and those studying such organizations.


Seems to be more than you think.

"Many similarities exist between the operations of the Confucius Institutes and multinational businesses"

Heres a nother good article on Confuius Centers.

I do not know where you studied economics.

In 1996 China gave $1,000,000.00 to Governor Clinton's campaign for the presidency. Prior to that, those of us in the real estate and combined securities markets knew China was purchasing large caches of commercial real estate in major metropolitan areas. No secret now.

Be as glib as you will, currencies must float, if they do not, like the yuan, which does not, no one know knows the value of their currency worldwide. If no one knows the value of their currency, the currency ceases to be sovereign. If the currency ceases to be sovereign and it is not anchored by a high value commodity (gold, etc) it is worthless. This would be true for ALL currencies, not just the dollar. If you have worked in the market, your head right now is going through a spin.. a domino effect of disaster due to our commitment to the investor and your nation's economic health. If its not, I repeat again...

I do not know where you studied economics.

Of course this describes every one one of your posts on this thread. You're not even an American so your trolling hate and nonsensical posts litter this thread. Please do us a favor and kindly get the hell off this thread.


The evidence is clear The Chinese clearly are trying to position themselves to take control of what they see as the collateral on the US debt they hold when the economy finishes imploding despite the denial of the mentally challenged... People seem more concerned with the envelope then the message which is typical of those in denial and always a good way to avoid meaningful discussion.

MrXYZ is one of the only ones making any sort of sense on here. You are so ignorant that it is starting to verge on racism.

You have no idea about the concept of globalisation
You have no idea about international trade

Do you really expect these foreign trade zones to turn into little chinese strongholds where they will start churning out tanks and take over your country!?

The US holds massive shares of some of the leading FTSE 100 companies in the UK, you have aircraft bases here and freely use our land for your military needs. Hell, you even have a few nuclear weapons here, but does that mean you are trying to take over the UK........No it does not. And I am not ignorant enough to start panicking and preparing for the "American Invasion".

If you really think the chinese are invading your country by setting up improved trading outposts then I really pity you. Its so shallow minded and your unfounded and xenophobic suspicions of the chinese people, to me, highlights a racist mind.
