A decision by the U.S. government to block the $1.2 billion Chinese purchase of MoneyGram might have concerned those hoping for a far bigger pile of Bejing cash to finance construction of an Alaska natural gas pipeline, but an authority on Asian investment doubts there will be any need for the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S. (CFIUS) to confront the financing of the 49th state’s long-awaited pipe dream.
