"The other country we have concerns about is China. Its stimulus measures were three times that of

the U.S.A and most of the stimulus funds went into infrastructure. From whatever reports we can

gather, we hear that there is massive overproduction in almost all sectors, rampant speculation in

real estate and that we should take with a grain of salt all government supplied economic numbers."
