The russians are buying up "profitalbe" companies, which eventually will not be profitable if no one here is working and unemployment slips into the 15 % range. And will become a power house when debt collection comes.

Japan: "We've come to get that trillion dollars we lent you back"
USA: "Well sorry, we don't have it"
Japan: "What did you do with it?"
USA: "We built thousands of nuclear warheads with it"
Japan: "oh, well we actually don't need that money right now. Very sorry for bothering you"
