Why pay back a loan when you can use that money to buy more gold?  Makes complete sense.  The Chinese know full well that all fiat is headed toward worthlessness.

Prudent, IMO.

Well, I didn't junk you, but I do think you're being way too simplistic.  They make and export cheap plastic shit, basically (that is also admittedly simplistic).  They're trying to make their way into heavy construction equipment but their product lines and presentation in Europe and America are raffable in the extreme.

Do you really think that if we stop buying their exports their citizenry is going to up and consume a shit load of iPhones?  If so, why aren't they doing so now and booming to Mars and beyond?  If our economy crashes, do they just nationalize all of the multinational corporations' factories and continue on as if nothing happened?

They've enslaved their citizens, they've poisoned their earth, and with no one to export to the factory workers go back to the rice paddies or kill themselves (or march off to nearest war, given the current climate).

We are no better, and our service/consumption based economy is also no better, but it's false to say that because our fundamentals are untenable then theirs are.

I am clearly not an expert here, so any clarification and correction is welcome.

Thu, 09/20/2012 - 23:39 | Link to Comment TheSilverJournal

The ONLY reason to export is to in turn import.

China is exporting a lot of stuff to the US for a poor exchange of goods in return. For the most part, what they get in exchange is digital fiat. China is doing themselves a world of harm by exporting us their real goods that took real resources and real labor to make in exchange for digital dollars, which will soon vanish into the thin air they came from.

Yes, when China stops getting screwed by this game, they will consume their own products, albeit there will be a cost to retooling their factories.

No they're not buying "our" debt (any more).  They're buying oil to fill their new SPRs, they're buying huge inventories of commodities which you can't eat and which pay no interest, they're buying tons barbarous relics,  they're buying foreign corporations with tangible assets,  they're buying access to raw materials,  they're buying foreign influence.  And with the growing pile of F/X reserves that they are amassing on top of all this buying and spending, they are not buying more UST, they are stockpiling other people's IOUs.

China hasn't bought any additional Treasuries in FY/CY 2011 or 2012

September 2010 - Chinese UST Holdings 1151.9B

June 2012 (Most Recent Comp) - Chinese UST Holdings 1147.0B

Net US Treasury Holding Change -0.4%

September 2010 - Chinese F/X Reserves (ex. gold) 24542.75B

In some small "1'st world economies", with fairly balanced budgets, bond yields actually go down, when they get sold!

 Hence the currency sell off, and not the "safe haven" effect! I think you are 100% correct Chump, but this sell off is more of a "repositioning" squeeze, IMHO. The RBA was still on the "firm side" last week. The aud/has been weighted by the "STUPID YEN" strength.

   The BoJ went all in Yesterday,so the "momo"& "speculators" can beat the hell out of the yen until further notice!

You didn't make those loans go bad;  the Japanese did!

Nobody could have seen his coming.  The shadow banking system in China (now $1.8 trillion in theory, much less with defaults) only charges 5-10% per month compounded for all those 'huge downpayments' we all know Chinese put down on the poorly constructed homes they buy.  Heck an economy growing at the mandated 8.88% should easily be able to generate that 75%+ per year vig.  Has to be somebody else's fault.

Essentially, nothing has changed and they haven't even begun to do the Fed's "Bad bank", "Good bank", "TBTF bank" musical chairs that end with dumping the bad loans under the carpet, and making currency confetti. Imo, they don't need to follow the Fed's model. They might just bankrupt the insolvent institutions, put a few 7.62mm holes in the heads their bankers and their delinquent debtors (Mostly local govt thieves who are leaving China in droves to Australia and the US), then start again. It's a one party system, just like everywhere else pretends not to be, and nobody is going to complain. (Probably). Few exceptions aside, the Chinese public are just as sheep-like as our public. (famous last words - hopefully).

Notwithstanding the fact that the NPLs are increasing -->CNY112.9 Billion = $17,910,681,800 in USD....Ummm, though I understand that credit proliferation in China, expressed as a percentage of Chinese GDP is north of 28.7%, $17+ billion, or multiples thereof, will not obliterate the Chinese economy....

Oh comme on. Even ZH claims that in China the ratio of non performing loans to all loans is well below the safe-net of 8%. The rules for the rich guys: 1. For a certain (insert the input) fee you may legalize your enterprisse by providing a document that all girs subscribing into your business revoke unconditionally their right to posses more than one husband and fall back onto the old law (only one guy for a girl allowed). 2. Additions to the crowd: a) Every girl coming into your enterprise needs to revoke unconditionally her right to posses more than one husband. We shall be happy to accept such recognition for the following fee (enter input). b) it is not clear whether some form of acceptance shall be needed from the female side of this enterprisse for a certain fee. 3. Substructions: a) Every girl in your enterprisse is allowed to leave on a free filing to the closest law enforcement agency (sheriff, post office, biblioteka). b) Her file can contain a financial claim that shall be judged (yeah lawyers ?== i wlasnie wtedz yawsye mi sie wlacya jeyzk programistz.

For those of you watching, that's the difference between "cement" and "concrete".

Oh, and PAPER TIGER, anyone? Why am I not surprised.
