China

At this point, we believe that China has dodged the big bullet. Hard landing is no longer in the vocabulary of most economists and forecasters. Detractors seem to have to resort to rehashing issues such as high leverage and high indebtedness to justify their bearish case. Yet there is no sign of impending doom. As a rather closed economy, the central government in Beijing has managed to keep rather tight control over China’s numerous problems. The recent fear about flight capital also seems to have abated. At the end of the day, foreign currency reserves still stand over $3.2 trillion. As new issues such as Brexit have grabbed the headlines, China seems to have faded to the back page. As an example, the recent decline of the yuan against the basket has not gathered much attention compared to what happened almost exactly a year ago. In the meantime, calm seems to have returned to the Chinese stock market as the economy stabilizes.
