China demands U.S. 'live within its means'

The largest foreign holder of U.S. treasuries responds to the S&P downgrading by calling for decreases in U.S. military outlays and social spending.

Reporting from Beijing— China called on the United States to "cure its addiction to debts" and "learn to live within its means" in a searing commentary published Saturday by the official New China News Agency in response to Standard & Poor's historic downgrading of the U.S. government's credit rating a day earlier.

China, the largest foreign holder of U.S. federal debt, blamed "short-sighted political wrangling in Washington" for creating the current financial morass that now threatens to undermine the global economy.

"China, the largest creditor of the world's sole superpower, has every right now to demand the United States to address its structural debt problems and ensure the safety of China's dollar assets," the commentary said.

"If no substantial cuts were made to the U.S. gigantic military expenditure and bloated social welfare costs, the downgrade would prove to be only a prelude to more devastating credit rating cuts, which will further roil the global financial markets all along the way," it continued.

China has regularly voiced concern about its dollar investments, most recently Wednesday when the governor of the country's central bank urged the U.S. to avoid a default and cut its deficit.

In addition to holding about $1.2 trillion in treasuries, an estimated two-thirds of China's $3.2 trillion in foreign exchange reserves is estimated to be in dollars.

Standard & Poor's downgrading was the first in U.S. history and echoed downgrades issued by a little-known Chinese credit rating agency that has been dismissed by some China watchers as politically motivated.

The Dagong Global Credit Rating Co. twice lowered its rating for the U.S., most recently Wednesday when it said defects in the U.S. political structure stood in the way of solving the country's debt problems.

"Dagong Global, a fledgling Chinese rating agency, degraded the U.S. treasury bonds late last year, yet its move was met then with a sense of arrogance and cynicism from some Western commentators" the New China News Agency's Saturday editorial said. "Now S&P has proved what its Chinese counterpart has done is nothing but telling the global investors the ugly truth."

Jin Canrong, dean of international relations at China's Renmin University, said Beijing is especially fearful of another global recession because leaders have exhausted stimulus measures to blunt the effects of the 2008 financial crisis.

"A second recession would be a nightmare for China," Jin said.

Massive credit expansion since 2008 has led to the country's highest rate of inflation in three years -- fueling a national property bubble and potentially sowing the seeds of social instability.

China's heavy reliance on U.S. debt and the dollar is largely self-induced because of its decision to shun market forces and control the value of its currency to keep Chinese exports competitively cheap.

China's central bank must jettison trillions of incoming foreign exchange to ensure the yuan remains low. For the most part, U.S. treasuries represent the only destination large enough to accommodate China's holdings. Officials have periodically pledged to diversify China's reserves, but few alternatives exist.

I laughed when I read this story yesterday. Obama the Socialist doesn't care to listen to anything sensible from the citizens here but maybe he will listen to his foreign comrades.

its a comment from a foreign government on our government's piss poor policies & leadership.

A government that thrives on suicidal sweatshop laborers and is perfectly willing to massacre it's citizens for the merest hint of decent. A government that allows theft of intellectual property. Encourages it actually. And one that through piss poor regulation aims for profit over product safety and quality.

well let's see...

We use millions of swaetshop laborers in the US, they are called "illegal immigrants" and our government does nothing to stop employers from abusing humans even though they could end the practice tomorrow.

Our government sells their government a stake in our country.

Our government does nothing to balance trade and prevent the huge outflow of dollars to their sweatshop industries but increases taxes and regulation to run MORE manufacturing out of the USA

But we could trash government all day, it is obvious that they need to be kept away from as much as possible.

I totally agree.

Our government sells their government a stake in our country.

Not sure what can be done about this.

Our government does nothing to balance trade and prevent the huge outflow of dollars to their sweatshop industries but increases taxes and regulation to run MORE manufacturing out of the USA

Thats because the men and women in our government have been purchased by those who make the profit off the current arrangement. Though many of the regulations are there to keep the US from becoming like China (desertification, pollution etc.)

But we could trash government all day, it is obvious that they need to be kept away from as much as possible.

By leaving the country? That's the only way I know how to get away from the government.

Anyone see the S&P credit ratings for China? It is lower than the newly lowered ratings for the US.


If at first you don't succeed, then sky diving is not for you.
