East Asian countries and Chaina in particular are selling their products dirt cheap (undercutting all competition)and then taking our paper instead of cash in return. So all ready they gain little or nothing from the sales save big revenue figures and further they destroy their cash flow. (remember the cash king models)

Some business use undercutting as a tool to buy markets but they are almost always cash and carry. (WaLMART) Remember WT Grants. They could have been Walmart but they sold cheap AND had high AR.

So what is the Chinese strategy? If they unload our bonds they will destroy their own market. Are they caught in a perpetual cycle of giving away their production to the US on the hope that someday they will be able to cash in?

This is not a leading question. I really can't figure out the Chinese play other than a small number of Chinese can leverage the labor of the masses and live like kings.
