China is experiencing an economic crisis that has affected financial markets worldwide. Who, in the U.S. government, is keeping track of what's happening in China and its impact on us? One group doing this is the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission:
was created by Congress in 2000 and its purpose is to monitor and
report on issues in these areas: "...proliferation practices, economic
transfers, energy, U.S. capital markets, regional economic and security
impacts, U.S.-China bilateral programs, WTO compliance, and the
implications of restrictions on speech and access to information in the
People’s Republic of China." To paraphrase an old saying, "Keep your
friends close, but your creditors closer."
