If there’s a Chinese business person in your neighborhood talking about buying a local company or plot of land, you’re not alone. Excluding bond purchases, Chinese investment in the U.S. set a record last year at over $14 billion, rising more than 50 percent from 2012. Whether more is on the way is largely our choice.
While the Lefties moan and rant about “crony capitalism”, a major player has come one the scene. It it was American corporations, the outcry would be tremendous. However, China? What's wrong about that country buying up everything in sight? Read the full article and get an interactive version of the graphic @ Chinese investment in the U.S. set a record last year

Conservatives already sold them our manufacturing jobs, so what does it matter?

Moreover, at least SOMEONE is investing in America. God knows our government and our elites aren't.

Didn't we hear the same thing about Japan in the 80's?

I'd love to see more Chinese and Chinese investments in my town. More Chinese settling in would mean more jobs, more demand for fresh fruits, vegetable, and meat markets, better schools, lower crime, and rising property values. Bring 'em on!

I can't help but think the same thing about Japan investing in the US in the 80s.

In all reality, our anemic job market is not what is causing the rise of investment in the USA. Years of exporting our labor and rising wages elsewhere have caused a balance to appear again.

Eventually we'll get too expensive again and the trend will reverse. And back and forth and back and forth ...

So stop with the witch hunts. Liberals and conservatives have nothing to do with this either, it's beyond politics.
