As the crisis at Evergrande continues, 3 more real estate developers have defaulted on their debt obligations in China. But, that is just the tip of the iceberg. Local governments in China could be hiding a $4 trillion "debt bomb". Palki Sharma tells you more.

Good doom porn. And probably true. China’s house of cards is teetering.
are they still holding US government debt????
$4 Trillion you say? Peanuts compared to ours. We probably owe them that much alone.
Bannon says China will have no recourse but to go kinetic hot war on Taiwan and others to divert attention from their crumbling base.
I believe him.
He says Biden has already given away one front of the China containment which is Afghanistan. Now the CCP and others believe Biden won’t do a thing to defend Taiwan.
Yes. China owns about $1 trillion in U.S. treasuries. By the way, they owe us about $1 trillion too. Though, the "us" they owe isn't our government, but many U.S. citizens who bought Chinese treasuries a century ago. Obviously, the original buyers are dead but China owes their heirs all the same (and whoever bought Chinese treasuries on e-bay when young Americans inherited worthless Chinese treasuries that China has been defaulting on for decades).
At best. China is a third the size of the US in its economy. That’s the real economy and not the paper economy.
If the US had to suddenly give up $12 trillion, it would be a quite a hit. It’s a much bigger hit for China to suddenly lose $12 trillion.
Not enough to matter. Contrary to popular belief, China doesn’t hold a huge amount of our debt anymore. If I remember correctly, their total U.S. debt holdings are now just slightly over $1 trillion. Pelosi and the dems can sink us that far in five minutes.
China will not hesitate to “burn the oil fields” rather than surrender to anyone. They will not hesitate to sacrifice millions of their citizens in a war with the US and they smell blood with the Biden Oligarchy.
We can’t hide our $28 trillion debt problem, or our demented President, or our vote-buying Congress.
Biden says “Chump Change”.
Yep, they will attack the world, to not do so is death to them...
The whole world should have not built up a dictatorship..Babylon the ho servants, not America first .
I find that hard to believe. The nation is only in debt 1/3 of that. According to Wikipedia the total number of U.S. Treasury securities held by foreign countries in June 2020 was $7.04 trillion. Do you have a source for the $90 trillion figure?
Not just China’s...
“..They will not hesitate to sacrifice millions of their citizens in a war..”
that was certainly true the war they fought in the field. They attack en masse. The first spread eagled on the serpentine wire and others running over their backs and willing to take huge casualties. Which they did in Korea.
