Default China Ramps Up U.S. Investments, From Straws To Semiconductors


The Chinese company Fuling Plastic set up a plant in Allentown, Pa.,
last year. The company, which makes straws and other plastic
products, supplies fast food chains. Chinese companies are
expected to invest about $30 billion in the U.S. this year, doubling
the record set last year.

Chinese companies are on a major shopping spree in the U.S. They're set to break a record for investment deals this year, snapping up everything from entertainment companies to methanol plants.

Most of these investments are takeovers, though Chinese companies are also expanding their existing operations to the U.S.
The rest at NPR.
Chance favors the prepared mind.

Good on two points.'

Less likely they will attack themselves.

We could do a hostile takeover if it comes to a crunch.
