Now it seems that China is eying to buy up large tracts of Europe. At he moment, it seems, it is only in Italy. But, how long will it be before the Chinese start buying Spainish or Greek assests, or even Portugese. Is this their alternative method of world domination?

Will the Chinese buy the world bit by bit? Why go to war when you can just buy other nations?

Ah, they have already started that. Look at how many manufacturing plants have moved from Europe to China. I would expect that the Chinese are making notes at each prpcess of the manufacturing chain in order to make their own cheaper copies.

For instance, Airbus has an A320 FAL in China. How long do you think it will be befor they come out with their own version?

are they buying bonds or land? headline said "bonds" but post said "land"... just wondering, because there could be a significant difference in what this indicates (speculatively of course).

dont know, imo, its important, that chinese products improve, these products lack of quality, safety and are only "cheap" when you buy them, but expensive on the long run. the question is how to get chinese authorities to implement safety for workers, so they dont become ill from bad working conditions.

just read an article saying that they are buying up bonds not land or corp. assets...the cic is only worth about $400b so this means that even if they went all in, it really wouldnt be that big of a stakeholder in the $7t bond issue
