Beyond Evergrande: Can China Shoulder Its Massive Debt Burden?

Real VisionOctober 13, 2021
Michael Pettis, senior fellow at the Carnegie-Tsinghua Center for Global Policy, has been worried for many years about China’s growing debt burden. But now that firm after firm in the country is facing a bankruptcy crisis requiring bailouts, China is truly at a crossroads: the country’s level of non-productive investment must come down—the only question is where. Will it come from a rising trade surplus or increased consumption by China’s cash-strapped citizenry? Or will the Chinese Communist Party be forced to accept lower—much lower—levels of economic growth for China? Pettis discusses alongside macro investor Michael Nicoletos, who asks about serious investment implications on commodities, foreign capital flows, the Chinese yuan, and global risk assets.

Swimming Against the Tide: The Case for the Disinflationary Era
Market oracles claim inflation is here to stay—Carlos Asilis, co-founder and CIO of Glovista Investments, chats with Mark Ritchie II of RTM Capital Advisors about his contrarian inflation angle. Swimming against the tide of mass inflation hysteria, Asilis outlines why the post-Covid era of high innovation, normalized supply and demand levels, and eased stimulus brings us into a disinflationary period. Despite investors relying on macro drivers as signals for the equity markets, Asilis emphasizes that macro growth does not equate to equity market performance. With persisting low yields in the fixed income markets, Asilis and Ritchie discuss some of the best investments today to replace these alpha-deficient instruments. Filmed on October 13, 2021.
