While the June summit between Obama and Chinese President Xi reportedly covered significant ground on cyber-espionage, North Korea's nuclear program and free trade, one issue that received little attention was the intensification of territorial disputes between China and its neighbors.

Those national savings must flow somewhere, and flow they do, to countries across the globe that consume more than they produce.
