Hmmm, interesting question so let’s uncover some interesting facts about the economy and Chinese banks. Many continue to declare that the dollar will die and that the Yuan will emerge as the “reserve currency” of the world. Well, no.

Until then, there is always demand for dollars.

Chinese banks have dollar denominated liabilities far in excess of assets. What this means is that bills and obligation that need to be paid in dollars are just that – in need of dollars to pay them.
