The Economist Global Business Review has launched a special banking report, 'Big but Brittle', which argues that China is faced with two unpalatable options. One, that it moves more boldly to free up its financial system, which would be the right thing to do for the future but would release pent-up perils now; defaults would climb, banks would rack up losses and many shadow lenders would go bust. The other is for China to eschew reform and instead try to patch up its current system. That would be easier in the short term, but the inexorable accumulation of debt would sap the economy’s vigour and raise the spectre of a fearsome crash.
At the British Centre in Shanghai on 6 June, we will discuss and analyse which way China’s financial markets will go with experts from The Economist, Fudan University and the China-Britain Business Council.
