On the one hand,The US Govt wants the Chinese to re-value their Currency upwards vs the US Dollar(by purchasing Less Dollars and Treasuries as Foriegn Exchange Reserves) and on the other hand,they won't let the Chinese Invest all those Billions of US Dollars it holds(within America).

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
