China Law Blog

Why do you assume there will come a time when "they call in the loans." In college I played backgammon against my roommate nearly every day for a year. There were times when he was way up and times when I was way up, but at the end of the year, we were so close to being even that there was no "calling in" of bets. Couldn't that be what happens here?

China Law


I am not sure, like China Law, that they will ever call in the loans. But certainly in this time, where the balance of power is shifting rapidly in the world, such a debt can be dangerous to carry. Already, China has shown strong overtures towards alliance with Russia. If this continues, and especially if the two decide to ally with the Middle East, leaving ourselves open to owing money to our enemies is a dangerous game. Unfortunately, the US has shown no foresight in this area.
