Who Owns United States Assets?
From treasury bills to commercial property, the ownership of America is being transferred. China is the largest population in the world. China is the eastern culture of the world. US is the western culture of the world. These two culture are literally polar extremes. One is very open allowing Google and Youtube and more. The other culture is very controlled. What will these differences mean to generations ahead - allot.
We are now a global society. The majority of our goods arrive from China. Sadly for human rights, the educational system will be dominated by what China allows. Freedom of thought and knowledge is dictated by the Chinese government.
Google, the corporate multinational giant, has run up against Chinese culture and politics. Google knows firsthand how different this culture is from American culture and American values. It is only a matter of time before these two cultures clash. If China owns our debt, if China owns our realt estate, what does that mean for US politics? What does this do for the global cash flow?

All of this serves only one purpose for America - the economic power of the US is being weakened on three fronts - goods, debt and commercial rent.

"In fact, the middle class as we define it (people with incomes
greater than $6,000 and less than $30,000) has already grown
by hundreds of millions in the last decade alone... The other BRICs (and other emerging markets) will also see a rising middle class in the next decade, and should also see a rising ‘upper class’ (incomes higher than $30,000.."

The good news in all of this, is there will be a new middle class - an emerging middle class in Brazil, Russia, India and China. The bad news for Americans, is the standard of living for the US will change dramatically.
