Reference: Ambivalence about capital from China, Bangkok Post, April 28, 2009

A much needed infusion of billions in capital into the Rio Tinto mining establishment offered by the Chinese has been put on hold by the Australians citing concerns about "national interest". These concerns might have carried far less weight had the suitors been British or American or even European. International mergers and acquisitions are tinged with racism.
