Zhou Sees China’s Deposit Rates Freed Within 2 Years – Bloomberg

Chefen för den kinesiska centralbanken Zhou Xiaochuan förutser med liberaliserade inlåningsräntor inom ett till två år. Samtidigt försöker det kinesiska ledarskapet undvika att gå samma väg som Norden gjorde: Finland, Norway and Sweden liberalized interest rates in the late 1970s and early 1980s without taking steps to regulate lending or tighten monetary policy, eventually resulting in a “full-blown banking crisis,” according to a 2009 paper by IMF researchers. The savings-and-loan crisis in the U.S. also stemmed from regulatory restraint after the government removed deposit-rate controls, the IMF study said.

Beijing confirms Tiananmen Square ‘emergency’ – The China Post

Statlig media bekräftar att den kinesiska polisen hanterade ett ”nödläge” vid Tiananmen under de politiska toppmötena i Beijing under förra veckan. Vad nödläget gick ut på är oklart. The report gave few details but said that the incident occurred in the “Tiananmen area” at 10.45am, as Chinese Premier Li Keqiang was giving his “work report” on government activities in the Great Hall of the People, which flanks Tiananmen Square. Two people claiming to have been at the scene around the time last week told AFP that they saw a plume of smoke at the north of the square, and cited onlookers as saying that a middle-aged woman had attempted to set herself on ablaze. Pictures posted online showed smoke but no fire.
