    why china?

  6. no particular reason........who else could've? Europe was just as hellish those days.......... china or Japan, or both, had to be a major.
  7. That's right, there's all sorts of stupid sensationalist crap in these... I commented on this in a couple of threads that have since disappeared.

    Whoever looks at this as a giant conspiracy by the Chinese or whatever, has absolutely no idea of a) how the money markets work; b) what m-mkt funds do and how they operate; and c) what actually happened on and immediately before Sep 18, 2008.
