Read the articles and watch a video from Stratfor.com today (found originally by Zero Hedge). The rumor was he lost $430 Billion holding U.S. Treasury bonds and would be punished by the Chinese Government, so he fled to the U.S. It's funny because the value of Treasury bonds are testing their all time highs and Gary Shilling (see first article) thinks they are going higher. The original thought from my Twitter stream was that maybe Treasury derivatives blew up in his face, or the losses were from GSE securities.
