Bloomberg: Hedge-fund manager Jim Chanos said investors concerned that U.S. technology stocks such as LinkedIn Corp. are overvalued should turn their attention to China.

Chanos, the president and founder of Kynikos Associates LP, said his “dramatic” bet against Chinese real estate may not be sufficient. While LinkedIn, the first social-media company to go public in the U.S., traded as high as 31 times sales last week, overvaluation is more widespread in China, he said.

    Chanos: I can’t believe that — when Congressional staffers look at how much money these for-profit colleges are costing taxpayers (in terms of student loan defaults) — that they’re not going to consider cutting these subsidies.

    Miller: Maybe a lot of them got degrees there.
