I remember China's first ever onshore corporate bond default making headlines in 2014. On Monday, 5 companies defaulted in one day!

Lufax, one of China’s largest online wealth management platforms that is backed by financial giant Ping An Insurance, plans to exit its once-core peer-to-peer lending (P2P) business. @chenglengrt @EngenTham https://www.reuters.com/article/us-lufax-p2p-exclusive/exclusive-ping-an-backed-lufax-to-ditch-p2p-lending-amid-regulatory-woes-sources-idUSKCN1UD0QP …

If Lufax can't do P2P, then who can? Scoop with @chenglengrt

Quoted @sovietvisuals

In 1989, the cash-strapped Soviet Union paid Pepsi with 17 submarines, a cruiser, a frigate & a destroyer in exchange for $3 bln worth of Pepsi. This caused Pepsi to become the 6th largest military power in the world for a moment, before they sold the fleet for scrap recycling.

I've decided to become a "Pepsi Still Has a Secret Navy" truther.

Quoted @caixin

In China, the flipside of being caught inflating profits is being able to reclaim the tax paid on the fake earnings. Ningbo Sunlight succeeded in clawing back money. Could Kangde Xin, which overstated its profits by $1.7 billion, do the same? https://www.caixinglobal.com/2019-07-16/the-silver-lining-of-fake-profits-getting-a-tax-refund-101440451.html?cxg=web&Sfrom=twitter …

China's tax office sounds quite understanding...

“Is there any reason to expect the idea of convergence to play out? ... The pessimistic view, which is the one I have, is that the past 20 to 30 years were an exception.”

My latest on how Chinese state-owned enterprises (SOEs) involved in infrastructure projects abroad are quietly evolving from contractors to become operators, investors & owners https://tinyurl.com/yymw4soa  @FairbankCenter @CWPColumbia

China Poly & China Silk latest central SOE merger. Doesn't make much sense on face of it - Poly's main biz is real estate, China Silk produces.. silk. But China Silk has a lot of debt & Poly has some space to absorb it.

"The Failures of the ‘Failure of Engagement’ with China": This, by a country mile, is the best thing I've read on whether America's engagement strategy with China was a mistake. Alastair Iain Johnston brings his customary rigour to a muddled debate. https://cpb-us-e1.wpmucdn.com/blogs.gwu.edu/dist/1/2181/files/2019/06/Johnston.pdf …

To deleverage the SOEs was one of the policy priorities since 2016. SOE's leverage was down 4 ppt from its peak, while the leverage private-owned enterprises (POEs) is bouncing back from its 2017 trough. The structural adjustments are happening fast.

Evidence from North Korean press of what nearly everyone familiar w Korea/Asia has been saying: Trump may have considered “historic” step a big moment for him (& some US press playing it that way) but much bigger no-cost “win” for KJU / repressive regime https://freedomhouse.org/report/freedom-world/freedom-world-2019/map … https://twitter.com/annafifield/status/1145499912655781888 …

Jim I respectfully disagree. Kim is legitimating peaceful relations w the US, and writing a new narrative of the US as non-threatening. Opens up all kinds of good possibilities. North Korean media needs to be read in their context, not ours.

Like others around the world, the Japanese have figured out how to play to a visiting Trump. Abe gave him this chart showing how much Japan invests in the United States.

In the 1990s half China’s exports came from SOEs. Now their share is only 10%. The trade war hits mainly privately owned and foreign-invested firms in China. Anyone know anything good on pol eco implications of this? @Gavekal via @SoberLook

Chinese banking seems to be having a bit of a “Dubai moment”. Creditors trying to work out what’s guaranteed by the state - and what isn’t. https://www.breakingviews.com/considered-view/chinas-bank-turmoil-locks-in-moral-hazard/ … by ⁦@cbeddor
