Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.
President Bush has nominated Henry Paulson, Jr to be the next Treasury Secretary. If it goes through, China may have a new friend on this side of the pond. At the least, China will have someone who knows them well.
Paulson has been to China more than 70 times! Holy toledo.
He has been to China more times than the 1.3 billion Chinese have. But, then he hasn’t been there as long, right?
Paulson knows China and it is my guess that the Chinese will respect someone more if they have taken the time to come visit their country X 70 times!
If Paulson is confirmed, he would immediately take the lead on Chinese yuan revaluation issue.
Paulson says this about Chinese leaders, “They (the leaders) are very bright pragmatic and aware of their problems. They have done a great job at economic reform.”
Paulson’s former firm, Goldman Sachs has also secured some of the best investment banking deals of the last decade in China.
Paulson knows China and has a keen interest in seeing the country’s economy grow soundly.
It seems Paulson is a good choice, at least when it comes to China.
What do you think?
