“Paulson to China: I don’t blame you. Really.”

The WSJ’s RealTimeEconomics blog reports on Hank Paulson’s clarification to the Chinese over his recent serial blaming of “global imbalances” as the cause of the financial crash.

“In assessing the financial market crisis, I have repeatedly and consistently targeted the vast majority of my criticism at problems in the United States, particularly our flawed and outdated regulatory structure,” Xinhua quoted Mr. Paulson as saying. “Whenever I have commented on global imbalances, it has been against that backdrop and I have gone out of my way to say that no single country is to blame for the imbalances.”
