Many of us spent much of 2012 confused about how the U.S. real estate market was improving within the context of a broke and unemployed citizenry. Well as time has passed the answers to our questions have been revealed.

The criminals are piling in. I first explained a couple of weeks ago how the financial oligarchs in the United States are currently in a bidding war to become America’s slumlords in my post: America Meet Your New Slumlord: Wall Street.

Now we also discover that part of the bid to U.S. real estate has come from another criminal class. In this case, we are talking about corrupt Chinese officials who are pulling their ill gotten gains from their homeland and desperately placing it in real estate all over the globe.

In the United States, the National Association of Realtors said that more than $7 billion of properties had been bought by Chinese in the US last year. Some high-end homes are now specifically built for rich Chinese with ponds for koi carp and a second kitchen for pungent cooking.

    Is there some kind of tin foil hat central exchange where all this stuff comes from? Wow, oh my god, a whole 7 billion dollars in a 928 billion dollar market. That's a whole .75% of the market. Talk about piling in. Be still my beating heart.

    Curiosity overwhelms me, how do you and the libertyblitzkrieg know that this is all ill gotten gains? Did you realize there are successful Chinese business people who have money also?

    i doubt they are gains of any kind, but out right embezzlement of govt and corporate funds and assets. Frankly, China doesnt have any matured self imposed or govt regulations and oversight. So if someone sees $1,000,000 USD sitting around.. they can snatch it because of lack of financial controls (checks and balances). If its missing one cant prove anything because of non-existant bookkeeping/accounting. This would be the ideal reason why many are walking past our borders with suitcases of cash. No more than smuggling. And of course where is it laundered ? The mafia or triads ...

    Had this been some Colombians or Bolivians.. one would sniff coke all over the suitcases. "Hey buddy .. where you going with that.."

    China's Great Swindle: How Public Officials Stole $120 Billion and Fled the Country
    By Xin Haiguang / Economic Observer / Worldcrunch Sunday, June 26, 2011

    Last week, the People's Bank of China published a report that looked at corruption monitoring and how corrupt officials transfer assets overseas. The report quotes statistics based on research by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences: 18,000 Communist Party and government officials, public-security members, judicial cadres, agents of state institutions and senior-management individuals of state-owned enterprises have fled China since 1990. Also missing is about $120 billion.

    Wait a minute -- aren't you the one who usually screams about how there is too much government oversight and regulation, and that it's part of the problem?

    look at the results... but dont let me tell you about it.. ask the founder of Sun Micro Scott McNealy. In fact ask your current Gov as he brow beat our Cal gov Brown how easy it is to snatch and bring California business to Colorado.

    Get out of California.

    The internal control over financial statements and assets WERE NOT created by government .. but was created by its own industry.. Frankly it worked well.

    The Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) is a joint initiative of five private sector organizations, established in the United States, dedicated to providing thought leadership to executive management and governance entities on critical aspects of organizational governance, business ethics, internal control, enterprise risk management, fraud, and financial reporting. COSO has established a common internal control model against which companies and organizations may assess their control systems. COSO is supported by five supporting organizations, including the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA), the American Accounting Association (AAA), the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) and

    You really shouldn't mix narcotics, alcohol, and posting. WTF are you talking about? Businesses move millions of dollars in and out of China every day. Individuals aren't prohibited from transferring currency. If you can document it's from a legal source and you paid taxes on it you can move money out of China.

    Wow, oh my god. A whole 18,000 people in 23 years. That's a whopping 732 people a year out of a country of 1.3 billion. Well that certainly accounts for a large percentage of their civil servants I would think.

    laughable.. how the heck do you assume such nonsense... Neither individuals and corporations can just wire money .. smuggled yes! its well know who do business.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/14K_Triad

    "Since the crackdown in Macau, the 14K triad resurfaced in North American cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago in the United States and Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto, Canada, Sydney Australia, also the UK. In response to the massive publicity generated by Broken Tooth Koi, the 14K dramatically lowered its public profile. Meanwhile, loan sharking and money laundering continue to be the primary sources of revenue for the 14K in North America."

    Luaghable. Extended forclosure timeframe from 12 months to what 3 years clearly had a far more massive effect on RE price than foreign buyers. Add in loan mods and principal forgiveness and we got prices going up fast!

    This will force the Chinese to liquidate assets at half their value to US citizens and lower the over all wealth and access to capital in China.

    With Obama, the Prob(conscription) = Pcons, is looking high.

    With the AF, Navy, and Marines at the smallest force in 50 years, and a fleet of 300 ships, Obama might have another social engineering job: Mandatory Mandarin Lessons.
