Shadow Banking Crisis in China | Young China Watchers, Shanghai

Event Details

Investors and economists are increasingly concerned that China’s recent growth has depended on, and is threatened by, increasing levels of risky debt. Most of this debt has not come from banks, but from shadow banks. Tonight’s talk will attempt to understand the shadow banking system in China by asking a number of questions.

Investors and economists are increasingly concerned that China’s recent growth has depended on, and is threatened by, increasing levels of risky debt. Most of this debt has not come from banks, but from shadow banks. Tonight’s talk will attempt to understand the shadow banking system in China by asking a number of questions. How large is it and how fast is it growing? Why has it replaced bank lending as the main driver of credit growth? Does it represent a serious risk for the Chinese and global economy? What can the government do about it?
