- For Experts
In this revealing book, financial journalist Dinny McMahon highlights how current aspects of China’s economy echo the events that led up to the 2008 financial crisis in the United States: lax economic policy, excessive creation of new money, rising nonperforming loans and self-perpetuating asset bubbles in property markets. Instead of tackling underlying structural problems, China’s government has unleashed massive stimulus in the form of a building boom that its leaders hope will maintain strong growth. But bubbles burst, and poor investments eventually come home to roost. McMahon’s insights reveal a complex nation and the global consequences of its decisions.
