China increased its holdings of U.S. Treasuries by $8.7B in February according to the Treasury Department. Meanwhile. Japan unloaded $6.8B of U.S. government debt, bringing its stash to $1.097T, a one year low. Analysts attributed some of the selling by the Japanese to positioning ahead of the BOJ's monumental easing campaign. China's holdings sat at a 15-month high going into March.

    The cold ware came to a eventual close in part due to the economic collapse of the Russian/USSR economy.

     

    With China so heavily invested in the US, is it safe to say that our quasi-frenemy will not mimic the Russians?

    I would say. Add to that the number of rich Chinese moms who make it a point to have their kids born in the USA.

    All warfare is economic in a nuclear age. The problem is the folks who have the best nukes don't understand the issue.
