This was the point. China and to an extent, India, are the big polluters and the fastest growing industrial economies to boot. And they are not held to the same standard--which is why the Kyoto treaty was night signed. He made a tongue-in-cheek remark about the villainization of America. And I love his candor.

Bush has been a disaster
Truth is, the Europeans love Clinton. And cheating on his wife is a non-issue. Americans were upset about the Clinton scandal because adultury in the White House, is unbecoming to a US President to its own citizenry.

The G8 is a joke anyways. They're more about politics and finances than caring about the environment.

There is a special on the Discovery ch. talking about China & the US trade and how we depend on them as much as they depend on us. Everyone they interview over their seems very positive toward the US. One thing funny on that show is that they view Wall Mart as an up scale store.
Best post of the thread.

Not sure why that's relevant from a financial standpoint?

Plus we have the world's biggest economy so we simply have more volume to produce pollution. I am not making an excuse but the notion that we are just lazy and don't care isn't toally right.
we're also not densely populate, leading to a bigger need to move more farther than say, england would.

and we've also got the biggest military, which cares about this much () when it comes to eco-friendly weaponry and combat systems.

No, it's not equity. It's debt.

But it's hard to take you seriously today. I'm going to start calling you 1nedas on days like this!

He wasn't the first and he won't be the last President (or even politician) to use questionable judgement while making a joke. This isn't exclusive to Bush.

10% stake in private equity firm Blackstone Group (a company solely in the business of buying and selling other companies for a quick profit) and 10% stake in Morgan Stanly isn't equity? I suppose I shouldn't worry too much, Dubai International Capital will rescue us from the Chinese with their $875 billion debt ownership funds.

You're misunderstanding, or maybe I'm not being clear. You can own assets from the issuance of debt, but that doesn't mean you own the country or it's government. In other words, I'm saying that if we default on the debt (would never happen, but think hypothetically), China has no legal or contractual claim to come in and take over our government.

And if China owns a 10% stake in our corporations, that does not get included in the National Debt or deficit figures. Those foreign investments are accounted for elsewhere.
