  • U.S.-China Market Divergence: Banking Reforms [View article]
    Thanks for your agreement. It remains to be seen, but quick decisions by the new government are a more active stance (against corruption, shadow banking) and are a good sign for the long-term.

  • China's Uncertainties Won't Stop Renminbi's Rise [View article]
    Very good article. China is following a slow, gradual process of internationalization of the RMB, creating an RMB bloc in Asia and slowly building out domestic and international infrastructure. The next 10 years should provide much progress

  • Renminbi Bloc: Future Implications [View article]
    I was highlighting the fact that USD transactions are decreasing and regional currency use is increasing. Yes, the euro is not in position to overtake anything atm, only itself.

  • Renminbi Bloc: Future Implications [View article]
    True, there are a lot of domestic issues that keep China down, but the focus should be first around the RMB bloc, regionally.

    China takes incremental, very calculated steps in terms of economic development, and broadens scope in the Maoist strategy of "encircling cities from villages". There seem to be strong incentives to open Chinese financial markets and increase RMB use outside the Mainland, the CNH. The current leadership change could accelerate this trend.
