11:02 am
continues to recover, and trend towards high quality live wolfman is constantly changing, and it has the ability and conditions to complete the expect goals and tasks for economy and social development throughout the year. when i from 0, katrina, year, and paging. well, this figure is slightly lower than many economists were expecting, and it could drag down global and stock markets, but they say, overall, china's economy is still expected to grow at a faster rate than most major economies by the end of the year. now looking at this figure, it's attributed to a variety of reasons, really, it's a perfect storm. a major reason is that china is tightening regulations on the number of industries that has been traditionally a major driver of economic growth here. now we've seen these power shortages that have in recent weeks affected provinces nationwide, and that's hampered manufacturing productivity. and these power shortages are largely empowered due to trying to,
11:03 am
trying to meet climate change targets. and this is resulted on codes on electricity and other energy production. we've also seen a big tightening of regulations around the housing and construction market and buy some estimates that makes up about a quarter of china's g d p. normally. and we've also had china's biggest real estate develop, but ever grant dominate headlines over the past month, due to having $300000000000.00 worth of debt that it's really struggling to pay back. and that's also impacted investors sentiment. and of course, we have the pandemic, which is continuing to have an impact on china. beijing is maintaining its 0 tolerance approach to coven 1900 outbreaks. so we see a handful of cases, small outbreaks, but the government here will still continue to react to these small outbreaks by imposing really severe city wide lock downs that had a devastating impact on domestic consumption and travel. a brief look at how

china's economic slowdown could affect global growth in september. the u. s. economy showed signs of cooling. a supply disruptions from china affected the world's largest economy in the euro's own. growth rates have been helped by high vaccination rates, but the soaring price of natural gas continues to pose a challenge at a surgeon cove at $19.00 cases has affected developing nations. brazil's economy contracted by point one percent in the last quarter. andrew collier is managing director of orient capital research, a research house which conducts independent studies on china. he's also the author of shadow banking and the rise of capitalism in china. he joins us now via skype from hong kong. andrew, good to have you with us. okay. 4.9 percent a little lower than economists had predicted, but it's still not bad. there are many economies who will look on enviously at a growth rate of 4.9 percent. is the contraction in china, a blip or indicative of longer,
11:05 am
more systemic problems. while it is definitely a systemic in a mill and symbolic of longer term problems. but one of the key issues is that, in fact, the pandemic has not been the deal killer for china. that people would have expected their exports were quite strong, even though the global economy is struggling and retail sales domestically. we're up for point 4 percent. so things are slower than they used to be. but in fact, the pandemic related stuff is doing ok apart from the supply disruptions because of the sharp locked downs and china. most of the problems in china with the economy are, but a lot of them are actually engineered by the government itself. they've done a number of restrictions and crackdowns that have been slowed economic growth in order to improve the long term ability of the economy to survive. i'm actually going to ask you to what extent is china's government impacting upon its own
11:06 am
economy by playing whack a mole? it seems you know, its efforts to st problems in one sector of the economy have ramifications elsewhere. well, they have a debt bubble and you can't stop a debt bubble without playing whack a mole. i mean, that's just the way the game is works. you know, the united states, we had a financial crisis with a mortgage situation and it was a giant whack a mole if you want to call it north wake. really in china, they've got this huge debt bubble, mainly property field, which is about a 3rd of the economy. and they've made a strong effort in the past year to try to knock that down to sides. and, and not surprisingly, that means there's less housing being built and sold. and then you had this huge developer ever graham the number $21.00 in the country with $300000000000.00 of debt. and because of all these tighter regulations on borrowing, they're in deep trouble. so that's been a significant drag on the economy a or at that the big question, what, what's the significance for the rest of us? that's what we want to know here, given the china is the 2nd largest economy. how is china's economic slowdown?
11:07 am
even if it is temporary, go to affects the likes of you and me. well, the supply chain disruption is a long term issue. and china has got a very harsh anti co good policy, which makes it hard to get the ships moving and, and, and lot of the containers going out. so that's a long term disruption. that's not severe, but it's, it's significant. the other question is, you know, will china collapse what have a financial crisis, and that's what they're trying to avoid that, but they're playing a tough game with that one. because if they type too much, they could create the collapse or trying to avoid. and if they, if they does collapse, and that means that a lot of demand around the globe for commodities and for a lot of other products will disappear. so there could be a significant impact. but that, that's mostly likely that the love us gradual, slow down that will impact the consumption of iron or, and the other us and good good is soybeans and other goods. really good talk to
