  1. LOS ANGELES (MarketWatch) -- A top Communist Party research chief said Thursday that China should buy gold and U.S. real estate rather than Treasurys, according to a Reuters report.

    Li Lianzhong, who is head of economics at the party's policy research office, said the U.S. dollar is poised for a fall, making gold and land better investments for China's $1.95 trillion in foreign exchange reserves, the report said.

    It quoted Li as saying Beijing should also focus on buying up energy and natural resources.

  7. Riiiight.
  8. Japan made the mistake of buying US real estate, before, and got their clocks cleaned on it
  9. US real estate won't go anywhere (it'll still be here tomorrow). world resources on the other hand are being depleted daily & new sources are few.

    Not exactly the same.

  10. Inflation adjusted the CRB today is at the same level as it was 40 years ago.

    How can that be when recourses are supposed to be indeed depleting more and more each day.
