Seems China is restraining. Is it worrying what Trump says about China?

It is absurd that Chinese people always think they can use holding of US Treasury debt to control American. they forget that American print green bills.

Another thing to bear in mind, the Chinese only derive 40% of their GDP from consumption (compared to the US deriving 70% of GDP from consumption). In other words, the Chinese have a long way to go before this transformation is as complete as this article would lead on to it being.

When Japan and China earn US$ in international trade and investment, where do you think they park it? Welll, US Treasuries is a favorite asset.

This is an issue about what options foreigners have with their US money, and not an issue about sovereignty or public debt.
