China and the Fourteenth Amendment

Most countries default on their debt now and again, but the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution says that the United States won’t. When President Obama visited China, I started to wonder about the significance of this guarantee to the massive to Chinese investment in U.S. government debt.

Then I started wondering how good that guarantee really is . .
