25. asia: Poll: Investors Predict China Bank Crisis
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-12-07/poll-investors...

Most global investors predict China will face a banking crisis within the next five years, paring their appetite for the nations shares and eroding confidence in its leadership, a Bloomberg Global Poll indicated.

Sixty-one percent of respondents said they anticipate a crash in the financial industry by late 2016, and only 10 percent were confident Chinas banks will escape trouble, according to the quarterly poll of 1,097 investors, analysts and traders who are Bloomberg subscribers conducted Dec. 5-6.

Evidence of slowing growth in China -- including the weakest manufacturing performance in more than two years, falling home sales and ebbing export growth -- has stoked concern that non-performing loans will climb in the worlds second-largest economy. The risk is a legacy of a record 17.6 trillion-yuan ($2.8 trillion) lending boom unleashed by Premier Wen Jiabao in 2009-2010 amid the global recession.

The deep-seated misallocation of resources, particularly in the real estate and banking sectors, will lead to a combination of political and economic instability, says Lance Depew, managing director of UPI Management LLC in Santa Barbara, California, and a participant in the poll. I expect further macroeconomic weakness and sub-par returns in the stock market for the foreseeable future.
