China’s economy will continue to slide for some time in 2016, and the overall growth rate will be even lower than in 2015. However, the economy’s fundamental sectors portend a steady growth rate of 6.5-6.8%, depending on the progress of the reforms and restructuring, and on the developments of world economic situation. In any event, a major slump or “hard landing” seems out of the question.

In the wake of the news that China’s economy grew 7.5% in Q2, Gordon Chang throws up the warning flags and argues that there exists a very real threat of a “Minsky moment” for China. Additionally, Chang states that the Chinese economy will more than likely continue to expand in the future, but this is not a positive sign.
