China Economy

China is changing from a saver to a spender (1) and this has implications for the global economy, but particularly for their aims of a strong yuan (2). The economic slowdown has resulted in calls for capital injections (3) and proposals to make it easier to access foreign investments (4), despite Chinese FDI dropping due to tighter US regulations (5).

China also has plans for future generations to become skilled investors by introducing investment education on the national curriculum (6).

Chinese stocks have been for a wild ride (7) feeling bullish one day (8) and plunging the next (9). Bonds have fared no better with demand for convertible bonds surging (10) but overall performance slumping and causing worries the problem will only grow (11) while the number of rich Chinese shrinks as slumping markets wipe out their wealth (12).
