Much is said about US' global debt and how it is China which is calling the shots to the US' future. This article indicates that it is not China which is in the driving seat, but the Americans themselves. If this be so why the brouhaha that China is looming over the US debt? In fact, if the US sinks, China will also sink,but to a lesser extent and so it appears that inspite of China tomtoming about US being in its pocket, it is not so. In fact, China is already proving to be in dire straits, now that owing to the workers' greed for better pay and perquisites, it has become uneconomical to do business in China, resulting in industries shifting to Vietnam and India. I have no head for figures. So, can someone who understands this tell us the true picture in simple terms?
