More Chinese Overseas Investments in the Mix

The past week has seen a number of announcements regarding Chinese investments overseas:
  • New World Hospitality, a Hong Kong-based holding company, acquired Dallas-based Rosewood Hotels for a reported $229.5 million;
  • Chinese companies executed trade deals with German companies this week worth a total value of $15 billion USD, including a $7.5B order for a (lucky number) 88 Airbus 320s; and
  • UK and PRC companies signed $2.3 billion worth in deals, including a $1.5B loan from Bank of China to British gas company BG Group.
For comparison, as part of a Sino-Franco deal ceremony, companies from both nations locked in about $20 billion in trade, while the US inked China deals worth $45B back in January.  What's more, the PRC also agreed to back off of preferences given to Chinese companies in government contracts, a commitment the PRC leadership seems to have honored today.

Two aspects of these transactions are troubling.  First, the lack of money headed towards the United States.  Second, at least one of the US deals involves technology transfers of the sort that Siemens and Kawasaki now regret.  To sum up, I am more than a little concerned that US companies are more concerned with short-term infusions of cash than long-term viability.

Yes, there certainly is quite a bit of that now, isn't there? I suppose when you have FIRPTA and AFIDA to contend with in the US, you look for other places to park your money.

It’s about the difficulty of doing business here and how something as simple as ordering a birthday cake can be a huge ordeal. Imagine purchasing custom products from a manufacturer or entering into a Joint Venture with a Chinese company or bringing your products into this market.

A great deal of patience along with competent advisors to help you will save you time and money, but most of all sanity.

Rather than directly generating electricity from the rotation of the turbine blades, Apple’s idea is to convert the rotational energy to heat a fluid. The heat in the fluid can then be subsequently used to generate electricity. Ascenergy

The loanable funds approach (or my version of it) is that at the natural interest rate, the flow of saving matches the flow of investment. It isn't that one causes the other. The interest rate coordinates them. financial advisor columbia sc

Thanks to the unprecedented postwar decline in federal spending relative to GDP in recent years (see above chart), the government is getting out of the way and the private sector has more room to breathe financial planners columbia sc
