Warning from history: Could Japan-style crash hit China?

China is starting to look like Japan before its economic bubble burst in the early ‘90s

Sizzling property prices, a groaning debt load, wealthy tourists and tycoons willing to slap down eye-popping sums for art: China is starting to look like Japan before its economic bubble burst in the early ‘90s.




Debt-fuelled investment in infrastructure and real estate has underpinned Chinese growth for years since the global financial crisis a decade ago decimated growth in Western markets that booming exporters relied on for growth.



United in debt
Japan too is groaning under a huge national debt, the legacy of monetary and fiscal policies aimed at boosting growth.


Eighties-era Japan kept interest rates low, creating excessive liquidity in its economy.


But it all came to an end when the central bank abruptly tightened policy. Stock and land prices plunged, businesses stopped investing, consumers stopped spending and bad loans piled up.


Chinese stock prices remain well off their 2015 highs. But mainland house prices have been soaring, particularly in hubs like Beijing, Shanghai and southern industrial powerhouse Shenzhen.

Both countries saw their arrival on the world stage announced by striking acquisition of foreign assets, as Chinese overseas investment hit $170 billion last year, surging 44 percent from 2015.





Reining in the rhinos
Still, China is not a mirror image of Japan 30 years ago.

The Chinese economy and its currency are tightly controlled by the state and shielded from foreign influence to a far greater extent than Japan.




Lessons from Japan suggest officials should have acted more quickly to bring in stricter banking regulations to keep lenders from overextending themselves and better manage the economic slowdown.


Others point out that China is not the advanced economy that Japan was at the time its bubble burst, meaning there is much more room for the economy to grow and increase productivity.

But even if China is headed for Japan-style troubles, warnings from its neighbour may not mean much.

What is a Perseid meteor shower?

One of the most stunning events in the stargazer’s calendar peaks on the night of August 12-13, when the Earth passes through the densest, dustiest path of Comet Swift-Tuttle
Where to see them?

Radiant centre of Perseids

Frequency: 80-100 meteors / hour

Entry velocity: 59km/s

Presence of moon – which will be three-quarters full and will rise on predawn hours – will make it more difficult to see meteors
Cause of Perseids

Perseid cloud: 1,000-year-old stream of debris trailing behind Comet Swift-Tuttle

Comet orbit: 133 years

2017: Earth passes through path of comet from Jul 17 to Aug 24
How to see them?

Sit outside in dark area, in suburbs or countryside. It takes about 30 minutes for eyes to adjust to dark – the longer you wait, the more you’ll see

The name Perseids derives from Perseides – descendants of legendary Greek hero Perseus (Northern Hemisphere)
