In today’s NTD China News, China’s Finance Minister and top banking official have missed the IMF and World Bank meetings in Japan.

Angela Merkel has saved us from ourselves over the BAE merger. But what if China comes calling?

| October 11, 2012 | 0 Comments

This morning we can all be thankful for German pragmatism. Well sourced stories in both the FT (£) and the Telegraph attribute the collapse of the £28bn merger between BAE and EADS to Angela Merkel’s refusal to give German assent to the deal. Tom Enders, chief executive of EADS offered confirmation of this, writing to […]

China, Japan and the world’s Agadir Crisis (1911)

| September 19, 2012 | 0 Comments

The Senkaku/Diaoyu clash in the East China Sea is the paramount political and strategic story in the world today, although you would not know that from the scant and almost jocular coverage in the British and European press. It is eerily familiar to anybody who has studied the escalating spat between Wilhelmine Germany and the […]

China heads for a hard landing

| July 5, 2012 | 0 Comments

Earlier on, I tweeted that I had become so worn down by repeated rounds of Quantitative Easing that I wouldn’t be blogging on the latest £50bn slug of it. I’m going to stick to that line, suffice it to say QE didn’t do any good last time, so it scarcely seems likely it will do […]

I have just come from The Economist’s forum on High Growth Markets (ie BRICS +) at The Connaught. For those still expecting China to rescue Europe – a region with a per capita income nine times as high, with debts to match – the head of the country’s sovereign wealth fund could hardly have been […]

China to ‘liquidate’ US Treasuries, not dollars

| September 15, 2011 | 0 Comments

The debt markets have been warned. A key rate setter-for China’s central bank let slip – or was it a slip? – that Beijing aims to run down its portfolio of US debt as soon as safely possible. “The incremental parts of our of our foreign reserve holdings should be invested in physical assets,” said […]
