Carlos Slim, one of the world’s richest men, has called on China to lead rescue efforts in the United States’ unraveling financial crisis. From AFP:
“China is now the most important country to help responsibly in this crisis,” Slim told journalists at a meeting in Mexico City.
“China has great liquidity, large resources, surpluses in its current accounts and a lot of capital flow,” he said.
“There is a systematic crisis in the whole financial system and the problem is that everything is interconnected.”
