Can China Reflate Its Economy?

Now the global institutions think it is better to issue warnings rather than continue hiding the big problems. Only Wall Street analysts still play the “let’s pretend all is well” game.

We hear all the time that China cannot have a crisis because it has $3.7 TRILLION in reserves. We disagree with that for several reasons. First, who has counted that? Is this Chinese accounting? It may have accumulated over the years, but hasn’t it been spent on extravagant and unproductive governmental projects, such as building cities where no one except the street sweepers live?
