CCTV-9: China’s Economic Outlook for 2010

December 29, 2009

I was on CCTV-9’s Dialogue program last night, talking about Premier Wen Jiabao’s latest interview on economic policy and assessing China’s economic outlook for 2010.  Anyone who’d like a quick overview of the main issues China is facing in the coming year might find it worthwhile viewing.  Issues we discussed include China’s stimulus efforts, the USD/RMB exchange rate, and whether or not China is developing a real estate bubble and what to do about it.

    Patrick,

    Nice job on the CCTV 9 show. You are very diplomatic. I would have responded to the comment about RMB appreciation, subsidized domestic energy markets being a sovereign issue as double speak. A country cannot tout itself as freetrading, demanding that other countries avoid trade barriers at the same time it refers to its currency peg and its subsidized energy and banking industries as being sovereign issues.

    I did like your comment about (and I paraphrase) “if you’re on the world stage and your decisions affect others, be prepared for criticism.”

    Get used to it, friends, it’s goes with the territory. Stop complaining, address the criticism with logic. You’ll never be a world leader until you do so.
