Young urban Chinese generation wants China to dump US debt holdings
Xia Wie, a 24-year-old graduate from Guizhou province, worries about the cost of housing and pollution in China. To her, lending money to the U.S. doesn't make sense.
"America is a developed country and does not need China's money," she said. "Let China put its money into itself so China will be strong."
It's also not sensible to Lin Xiang, a 25-year-old graduate of Peking University's Guanghua School of Management.
"We have financed the American people's overconsumption for many years," Lin said at a Starbucks on Financial Street, near the investment bank where he works.
