Remember how the Chinese laughed at Geithner when he said their American investments were safe?
The laughter was not just the opinion of those sitting in the audience listening to Geithner’s speech.

The paper concluded, “Ordinary Chinese people are discontent with the declining value of China’s huge foreign exchange reserves denominated in U.S. dollars.”
