(WASHINGTON TIMES) China is bullish on the U.S. economy.

The world’s most populous country is in the midst of a wave of purchases and investments in American companies.

The influx of Chinese capital is welcomed by some economists, while others fear the increasing influence of the rising superpower.

“There are a lot of Chinese companies that are interested in coming to America and buying companies,” said Siva Yam, president of the U.S.-China Chamber of Commerce. “We have seen an increasing trend of Chinese companies investing in America.”
