5 Chinese Stocks That Could Double Your Money in 2010
Because the yuan is pegged to the dollar, Chinese outsourcing becomes cheaper as the U.S. dollar falls. It’s this dollar-based competitive advantage that has provoked Indian companies to slash costs and profit margins to remain competitive, especially in the tech sector. And Chinese companies now have responded by ramping up efforts to steal more business from Indian companies.
If you look closely, you can actually see the battle brewing with your own eyes simply by skimming the back pages of the financial section.
