Is there a rating agency for fucking slavery? Buying or trading with China is a crime against humanity.

Yes, china is rated A+

I just find it funny that China which rose, because of outsourcing from the US and Europe is now marking down its biggest customer.

I think the old Chinese curse,"May you live in interesting times," may hold water here.

I think "do not watch what they say, but watch what they do" will be very applicable here.

The Chinese have accumulated more than $3 trillion in US treasuries. So their accumulation is directly related to the fiscal profligacy of the United States. Without a saver saving the debt, how can the debtor keep issuing the debt? They can't sell too quickly as that will destroy their portfolio.

I also think most of the Chinese wealthy save in foreign currencies such as the dollar and the euro, as the renminbi is a weak currency and inflation in china is rampant.

So sure Dagong can downgrade US debt, but that's basically noise.

It's likely prelude to the invasion, conquest and rape of California.

The PLA will announce that white dog Americans are unreliable devils destroying their currency to avoid paying the Han their due, leaving them only one choice: seizure of in-kind assets to repay the debt.

We'll wake up one morning with mushroom clouds over SF and LA and the hammer and sickle flying over Sacramento.

The Chinese will be shown to have manipulated it's own currency and stock markets in the future.

Major accounting flaws, lies and bribery have corrupted the entire capital system in China.

Invest in China at your peril, they lie about the real values of their quoted businesses.

A friend barely got out with his investment back after 2 years. Everyone was lying to him. Subcontractors, people he hired, his customers, to an extent he knew it would be impossible to scale the business to any degree.

Veracity in commerce, t'ain't an option, McGee!
