Beijing's grip on fiscal, financial control must loosen

Since the eruption of the global financial crisis in 2008, China has used massive economic stimulus to sustain growth. But unresolved structural problems have meant that the stimulus packages generated significant fiscal and financial risk, while doing little to improve China's capital stock.

China ignores at its own peril its hidden debt risks

Since China's era of reform and opening up began, the country has experienced three instances of large-scale public-finance problems. In the late 1970s, it faced a debilitating fiscal deficit. In the 1990s, its corporate sector was plagued by "triangular debts". Later that decade, financial institutions were burdened by bad debts generated by state-owned enterprises.
