    The Credit Suisse stats are being presented in misleading ways. CNN's reporter probably failed her statistics class.

    I think the best claim I've ever seen is the prediction of homeless millionaires. :rolleyes:

    We made them what they are. Every time we buy something "made in China". I'm sick of the whole deal. I can't stand how they exploit the poor and vulnerable. Some socialism!

    Yes, apparently it makes oligarchs and dictators quite set for the rest of their lives.

    I met a man who was a high-priced lawyer at Sun Valley, ID. He made in the high six figures. He lived in subsidized housing. After six years, he decided to move someplace he could afford to live.

    At least, that was his story.

    Not sure I should trust him. After all, he was a lawyer. Or claimed to be one.

    Yah know? Never mind...

    So China has more rich billionaires than the US. Big deal.

    The real measure of a country's wealth is how many poor billionaires they have.

    And yes, I know Polymath got there before me, but... Shut up.

    Yes we did make them what they are, we wanted to buy cheap with no thought of the future effect. Be interesting, or scary, to find out just how much of America is owned by China, how much we are indebted to them.
    But isn't China a communist country, not socialist?
