Will it flow on to here?


Evergrande in China .... cracks appearing.

To put Evergrande’s immense size and importance to the Chinese economy into perspective, its debts amount to around $US315 billion ($A432 billion).


That is more than three times the entire debt load of the New Zealand government and around two thirds of all outstanding Australian federal debt.

Some economists have warned that the collapse of Evergrande could become China’s “Lehman moment” – a reference to the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers as a result of the subprime mortgage crisis, which triggered the 2008 global financial crisis.


However, Capital Economics’ Simon MacAdam described that narrative as “wide of the mark.




On its own, a managed default or even messy collapse of Evergrande would have little global impact beyond some market turbulence,” MacAdam, a senior global economist at the firm, said in a Thursday note. “Even if it were the first of many property developers to go bust in China, we suspect it would take a policy misstep for this to cause a sharp slowdown in its economy.”


As of Friday’s close, the company’s Hong Kong-listed shares have plunged more than 80% year-to-date.




kinda agree with this. my take is share holders will be wipe out, but chinese financial system won't collapse . as for will it flow on to aussie market?? not sure, but aussie property market already on the "hype" this event might trigger a pull back, who knows!! :unsure:
