Chinese Rating Agency Says U.S. As Creditworthy As COSTCO, Pegs U.S. GDP At $5 Trillion (NOT $14T), And Downgrades Bernanke

Bernanke was reportedly downgraded From Triple FFF To 'Unmeasurable' on worries over his sanity in the face of worldwide criticism.

And the score after 2000 years of play is Beijing 1, Washington (-$16.2) Trillion.

The Chinese rating agency, which hit headlines earlier this year for its AA-view on the United States, is back, with another US downgrade.

From the 10-Page Downgrade Report

The serious defects in the United States economic development and management model will lead to the long-term recession of its national economy, fundamentally lowering the national solvencyThe new round of quantitative easing monetary policy adopted by the Federal Reserve has brought about an obvious trend of depreciation of the U.S. dollar, and the continuation and deepening of credit crisis in the U.S. 

Such a move entirely encroaches on the interests of the creditors, indicating the decline of the U.S. government’s intention of debt repayment.  Analysis shows that the crisis confronting the U.S. cannot be ultimately resolved through currency depreciation.  On the contrary, it is likely that an overall crisis might be triggered by the U.S. government’s policy to continuously depreciate the U.S. dollar against the will of creditors.

The total output value of the U.S. financial services industry is composed of two major parts: one is the transferred production value, most of which comes from value distribution of participating in international production.  Another part is the inflated value originated from credit innovation, which belongs to bubble value.

In addition, due to the high economic financialization, more than half of the profits in the real economy come from the returns of financial activities. If we exclude the factor of virtual economy, the U.S. actual GDP is about 5 trillion U.S. dollars in 2009, per capita GDP about $ 15,000.  Meanwhile, the total domestic consumption was 10.0 trillion U.S. dollars and government expenditure was 4.5 trillion U.S. dollars.

Chinese say U.S. as Creditworthy as Costco - WSJ

Taking Dagong’s downgrade at face value, Uncle Sam is now a credit on the level of Costco, based on the big box retailer’s Standard & Poor’s rating.  The Treasury can take pride, however, in ranking a notch higher than “Government Sachs,” rated only A by S&P.  Fortunately for U.S. taxpayers, who must foot the bill if the federal government’s borrowing costs go up, the market currently puts little credence in Dagong’s A+ U.S. ratings.  According to Merrill Lynch, U.S. Treasury debt currently trades at a yield 66 basis points lower than the AAA corporate index.

China may overtake the US in 2012 in terms of the size of its economy, based on a comparison between the real purchasing power of the two countries' currencies, the Wall Street Journal said Wednesday, citing a report released by a New York-based research association.

I am surprised America's rating is that high! With another $600b being printed America will see high inflation.

The odd thing is that very few Americans know anything about China, either past or present.

"Mao's policies and political purges from 1949 to 1976 are widely believed to have caused the deaths of between 40 to 70 million people." Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mao

To say I don't trust the Chinese leadership is a euphemism. The word 'trust' doesn't apply to them.

The United States seems to be giving up its power voluntarily and those who are trying take our place will spin nightmares which are no more or less horrible than our own.

What can we do to stop the downward spiral and wake up from our own nightmare?

The $15,000 per capita calculation makes sense from my neck of the woods. I don't know any families of four making $180,000 a year.

Anyone see this article? Its paints a completely different perspective along more of a positive line. Looking for some feedback from those that are familiar with the issue. Thanks.

dogismyth thank you!! For a much needed opposing perspective on QE2. "Inflationary hawks are circling" indeed. I can't help but think the US$ will inflate, but it has a long ways to go before approaching Ireland's 1000% debt:GDP ratio.

Excellent post. No matter what your views a counter opinion is so important.

When they switched GNP to GDP they started to include bogus things. Now if you're arrested all the costs, ie attorney fees, Judges salaries, bailiffs, prison guards, prison construction and prison food is in the GDP, yet nothing was created but the spinning of money. money. The same happens with a pair of Chinese jeans; the shipping, retailing are included, but what is created? Nothing.

China was taken over by the western powers in the last 30 years of the 19th century when the British addicted mass numbers of the population to opium from India. They sold the opium pound for pound for silver, bankrupting China in 30 years. We've done the same thing with our consumer madness for cheap goods. The worm has turned and we're all, well not all, most, of us are in deep doo doo with nary a solution insight.

All hail the "International Bankers" and their realization of the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" step by step business plan that took a little over a century to execute. Think it bogus? Read it and weep.

Costco should sue for libel. Obviously Costco's finances are in much better shape than the US government's.
