China is worried :
They probably should have gotten the guarantees before they bought the securities.
Interesting to know that China has a trillion dollars of our debt. That's it? What are they so worried about? They have a billion or so people. That's only $1000 per capita.
Of course if you think of the Chinese system as a bit of a kleptocracy benefiting the top echelon of the political class disproportionately and assume that class has maybe 1000 influential people, that's $1 billion per relevant person. That would be real money. No wonder they're worked up.
