    Default Anybody Watching C-Span2 Right Now (7/13/05)?

    Man, they've got a Congressional hearing on right now focusing on China's attemp to buy BP and their overall economic strategy. They are also talking about developing new technologies for vehicles (hybrids and so on).

    I know that there are only 8 people who might be remotely interested but it will run all night and I recommend it.

    For the resto of you who bitch about partisan bickering, you should see this because everyone is acting like adults. Go show, I'm, learning much.

    Elaborate on the discussion, if you will.

    Well, there was James Woolsey and some other think-tankers discussing the pro's and cons of China's expanding economic strategy and how the U.S. government isn't paying proper attention to the situation.

    The speakers were divided on how serious or negative a Chinese buyout of BP would actually be. They said that China now has a ton of money from their economic boom to now be a serious player on the world stage and we aren't ready for it.

    Some of the Congress people warned that China could be waging an economic war against the U.S. and that because the Bush Admin is friendly with China they are looking the other way.

    Woolsey suggested that the U.S. and China should team up to develope new fuel alternatives and better automotive technologies since both are the largest consumers of oil and need options to counter the shrinking fuel reserves and markets.

    There was discussion of what would happen to gas prices in the U.S. if Venezuela decides to sell it's oil exclusively to China (They said prices would up - suprise!).

    Bottom line, there are a lot of smart people watching China evolve. None of them work in the Government.
