What you need to ask yourself is why don't Americans feel rich and why is all that money going to the top 5% of the population. Don't blame the Chinese for our problems. This country actually has a lot of money. Somebody is being very greedy here and its not the Chinese with 1.3 billion people and only a $7.2 trillion dollar economy. What about EU and US with a combined 800 million population and a economy of $32 trillion whining about asians being too rich? Now thats greedy... lol Numbers don't lie but maybe the media sometimes does.....
The U.S. total wealth is $60 trillion - not $15 trillion. Our total debt is $15 trillion of which ~$3 trillion belongs to foreign nations (China owns on the order of $1 trillion of our debt).
