The Chinese Economy After the Global Crisis

  • Liang-Xin Li


Since 2008, the global economy has been experiencing the deepest downturn in the post-World War II period, as the financial crisis rapidly spreads around the world. A large number of advanced economies have fallen into recession, and economies in the rest of the world have slowed abruptly. Global trade and financial flows are shrinking, while output and employment losses mount. Credit markets remain frozen as borrowers are engaged in a drawn-out deleveraging process and banks struggle to improve their financial health.
