BETTING ON THE COUNTRY WITH A FUTURE:

China still lead buyer of U.S. securities (Catherine Tymkiw, September 18, 2012, CNN-Money)

The U.S. government's top international creditor continued to add to its holdings, albeit modestly, according to the July Treasury International Capital report, which measures the flow of funds into and out of U.S. securities, including Treasuries, agency-backed securities, corporate debt and stocks, as well as banking capital flows.

In July, Chinese investors increased their holdings by $2.6 billion to $1.15 trillion.
