At Stern's Global Alumni Conference in Shanghai, Prof. Robert Engle is interviewed on risk in China
June 25, 2013
Excerpt from China Economic Review -- "In Asia, risk is increasing, and has been increasing for a decade. The financial crisis did not show up very much in Asian banks, but they look substantially riskier today than they did five years ago. And in China, the rate of increase is very high. Its banking sector is taking on a risk at a very rapid rate. This is by publicly available accounting numbers. So, my feeling is, at the moment, that China is big enough, strong enough that they could recapitalize the banks."
