    Central Banks Pass the Parcel

    Despite successive rounds of tightening by many countries in the region, Asian central banks largely remain way behind the curve, with robust monetary aggregates and, in many cases, negative real interest rates. But given that the Fed has failed to lead by example in tightening, countries that should be reining in capital further have become hesitant and reluctant to tighten too fast, on fears of inviting destabilizing inflows and driving their...

    GaveKal Daily - Is There a Way Around the Malthusian Roadblock?

    Viewed from a global perspective, one could characterize the Fed’s aggressively dovish monetary policy as a ‘Game of Chicken’ with the emerging market surplus countries. In this game, the US$ continues to decline, and commodities continue to rise, and the loser is the first country to give. The US would throw in the towel by raising interest rates to spare its economy the pain of rising energy prices; the surplus countries would cry uncle by...

    China And Indonesia: Together At The Coal Face

    China’s ravenous demand for natural resources, prompted initially by post-financial crisis stimulus spending and now by the knock-on effects of high economic growth, has helped forge stronger economic integration between China and its neighbors in southeast Asia. One of the most striking examples is the relationship with Indonesia, where a complex set of trade and investment ties are now emerging, led by China’s need for high-quality Indonesian...

    GaveKal Daily - Is Oil the New Interest Rate?

    With Brent oil at US$122, and other commodities (gold, silver, corn…) making new highs, the single most important question confronting investors is whether oil has become the new interest rate. In a typical cycle, interest rates rise along with economic activity until nominal rates move above nominal GDP growth, triggering a slow-down in growth. However, in this cycle, the dovishness of central banks appears so deeply ingrained that commodity...

    Will China Enter the Corn Trade?

    As US corn prices make new highs, and global supply remains tight, rumors of significant Chinese corn imports have once again become a hot topic. Speculation that China had re-entered the market for US corn sparked a +14% rise in Chicago corn futures two weeks ago. On March 25, the USDA reported a number of deals to export 1.25mn tons of corn, or about 3% of total 2010 exports; many traders believe these exports are destined for China. Sinograin...

    Hong Kong’s Favourite Hedge

    With prices for shoddy apartments reaching eye-watering heights, it is hard to go out in Hong-Kong without every other conversation rapidly turning to the increasingly prohibitive price of real estate. And the main question is always how much higher can prices go? As we write, the mortgage repayment to income ratio is back on its long term moving average, highlighting that if interest rates move up from their current rock-bottom levels, the...

    Two Reasons the HKD Peg Will Not Go Away

    Like wine, inflation numbers for Hong Kong come in three colors, with the red (in this case property prices) far more important than either white (CPI) or rosé (PPI). Now the current acceleration in HK inflation, and the fact that Hong Kong real estate prices continue to make new highs (thereby helping make Hong Kong one of the most expensive cities to live), is not that surprising.

    The Renminbi Grows Up, Slowly

    After the 2008 global financial crisis, Chinese officials identified the US-dollar based monetary system as a contributor to the crisis and a source of systemic risk for the global financial system. In response, they began a program for internationalizing the renminbi, whose circulation was hitherto largely restricted to mainland China. This led to much excited commentary about the possibility that the renminbi might replace the dollar as the...

    A Downbeat Chinese Consumer

    China’s consumers appear to be the most unhappy they have been since the depths of the global financial crisis. The NBS’ monthly consumer confidence index is at its lowest level since early 09. And that is not an isolated reading: an independent consumer confidence survey by Hyperlink Research of Shanghai is more volatile but shows a similar trend.

    The Impact of China's Social Housing Plans

    Fears are mounting that the Chinese government’s promises to supply a massive 36mn units of social housing over the next five years will trigger a collapse in housing prices. Or, alternatively, that steel and cement prices will soar on the construction roll-out, thereby decimating margins for other developers. In our view, neither fear seems justified, for several reasons.

    No Nukes in China?

    Japan’s nuclear emergency has caused a sharp sell-off in global nuclear energy plays on concerns the disaster in Fukushima could snuff out the recent renaissance in the sector.

    At last year's NPC, Premier Wen Jiabao signaled a shift away from growth for growth's sake towards facing up to structural imbalances and improving the quality of growth. But China's economic performance in 2010 showed precious little evidence of this: the economy expanded at +10.3%, slightly above the +10% average growth rate of the past 30 years.

    CEQ Q4 2010 - Winning The Digital Demographic

    China is a key battleground for control of the digital consumer: no longer just a producer, China is the world’s biggest consumer of computers, cell phones and televisions. This growing influence in technology is driven by an urbanized consumer class equal in size to the entire United States and anchored by 15-34 year-olds plugged in to global trends. As young, upwardly mobile consumers eagerly accumulate the trappings of middle-class life,...

    CEQ Q4 2010 - Chinese Consumers: Dream Come True

    This publication has long poured skeptical cold ink on extravagant claims that the quasi-mythical beast known as the Chinese consumer will take over the universe. For a long time China was a nation of many people, most of whom had little money to spend on anything beyond the bare necessities. But as facts change we change our minds, and the facts now clearly say that the Chinese consumer has arrived.

    CEQ Q4 2010 - Tangled Supply Chain

    If England is a nation of shopkeepers, then China is a nation of wholesalers. In 2009, China’s 53,000 large wholesalers sold nearly Rmb15 trn of goods in the domestic market, worth nearly half of national GDP. Many of those sales were made in Linyi, a diesel-scented city of 1.5m people located midway between Beijing and Shanghai, and home to north China’s biggest wholesale market. Linyi’s roads roar with trucks dispatching orders from a 100...

    CEQ Q4 2010 - Sportin' Life

    A stroll down the high street in Linyi, a city of 1.5m in east China’s Shandong province, reveals much about the state of interior China’s retail market. There are two basic categories of chain store on offer: low-end casualwear and sportswear. By far the dominant category is sportswear – basically sports shoes and simple garments – and both foreign and domestic brands are on offer. The foreign offering includes three Nike stores and two Adidas...

    Even if you’ve never set foot in China, walk into any outlet of China’s best-known retail chain and you’ll feel like you know what’s going on. The retailer is Gome Electrical Appliances Holding (Gome), and it sells home appliances ranging in size from woks to washing machines, plus the odd computer or cell phone, and lots of flat-screen TVs. You’ll see familiar products assorted into groups, many of them affixed with discount tags, and prowling...

    CEQ Q4 2010 - Metals Man: An African Romance

    The success of Chinese resource companies in tapping Africa’s bountiful natural wealth is the envy of their Western competitors, who frequently struggle to get a foothold in Africa’s alluring but frustrating mineral sector. China’s success stems from building much-needed infrastructure in exchange for privileged access to high-quality natural resources. China’s twin policies of offering no-strings investment and refusing to interfere in the...
