I have one nagging question that will not go away. Maybe someone smarter than I can answer it for me. If China is so poor in natural resources, how is it that all these nations (we being the largest) seek their currency to finance our debt? Their currency has to be valued higher than it is actually worth, if there are no resources backing it. If they should "call on our debt" they will get what they actually want, our resources, which by most estimates are phenomenal. I say that China is very devious in its assessment of their own currency and their goal is to gain the whole world through default.
