  1. With yields going up why not buy stocks/assets instead of more treasuries? ie: buy GE and BA outright, Buy LLL and Harris.

    Buy KO,DOW,MSFT,intel.

    I would as a nation rather own those than just treasuries.

    ...... Could this be some sort of clever plan by them to crash all the markets and then sell off the U.S treasuries and buy up all the companies cheap?

    Hostile takeovers? Don't most large corporations have over 51% of the shares or no?

    The recession wiped out goldman sachs for crying out loud, don't tell me it's not possible, I think the Chinese are far more clever than the stupid nationalists here give them credit for.
  5. wouldn't there be an issue with monopoly.
