Sharing is Caring!

On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Maria Bartiromo’s Wall Street,” Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party Chairman Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI) argued that there are “startling parallels” between the investments in subprime mortgages in 2008 and American investments in China and argued that businesses are not sufficiently disclosing or factoring in the risk of being in China.

Gallagher stated that during the committee’s field hearing earlier this week, “we tried to impress on our friends in New York…the startling parallels we’re seeing, Wall Street pushing trillions of risky securities onto unwitting Americans, using financial engineering to skirt the rules, and lobbying to fight all regulation. But instead of subprime mortgages in 2008, this time, it’s Chinese securities that often use obscure things like VIE structures to strip shareholder rights and corporate governance from investors.”
