Image of PDF Article regarding China

What if the sky isn't falling?

At the start of 2016, consensus seemed to be that by now China’s foreign exchange reserves would be depleted and the currency would have experienced a dramatic devaluation. These predictions proved incorrect, instead China’s Q3 data indicated that economic growth has stabilised at a good rate.

Andy Rothman's "Sinology" reveals, why he thinks, the risks of a hard landing are very low and China doesn’t have to worry about a housing bubble. It also suggests that the services and consumption segment of the economy will be bigger than the manufacturing and construction segment.

Andy Rothman lived and worked in China for more than 20 years, analysing the country's economic and political environment, before joining Matthews Asia in 2014. As Investment Strategist, he has a leading role in shaping and presenting the firm's thoughts on how China should be viewed at the country, regional and global level.
