The Chinese public is worried about the safety of its foreign-exchange reserves. If America fails to adjust its economy by increasing its saving rate and reducing its current account deficit another financial crisis triggered by a dollar crisis could be inevitable…Geithner can show us some arithmetic.

I do not know whether there will be enough demand for new issuances and hence I am worried about the direction of the prices of US government securities.

Prospects for the US dollar and US Treasuries do not look good at the moment, and even worse in the long run.
Wang Jian, Secretary General of the China Society of Macroeconomics
