Too funny:

"Nothing says ensured profitability, prosperity and success like giving up an 8% stake of your firm to communists."

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference QOTD: China's Investment:


On Saturday, I started to wonder if there's going to be some interplay between:
(a) the fact that we told China "you're money's no good to buy Unocal",
(b) those new, anonymous exchanges,
(c) private equity, and
(d) China's decision to diversify into equity funds.

Working through PE firms would make sense. It might let them invest without the political backlash.

I don't know that I would want to draw attention to that possibility by buying a publicly divulged stake in a PE firm. (Well, maybe it's necessary or it's a way to test the waters.)
