U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission

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:

It 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."
