”Treasuries Lack Safety, Liquidity for China, Yu Yongding Says

���I do not think U.S. Treasuries are safe in the medium-and long-run, ���Yu, a member of the state-backed Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, wrote yesterday in an e-mailed response to questions. China is unable to sell the securities in a ���big way��� and a ���scary trajectory��� of budget deficits and a growing supply of U.S. dollars put their value at risk, he said.”
