shadow banking sector poses a growing threat to the global economy China’s exports fell dramatically in February in spite of an uptick in the US economy And while the 181 per cent year-on-year fall is being explained away — last year’s numbers were littered with “fabricated trades” and the lunar new year holiday in February resulted in fewer working days — there is no denying the general slowdown At 77 per cent in 2013 its growth rate is already at its lowest since the late 1990s It is clear that China’s grand reorientation — from an export-driven economy to a consumption-based one — is not going to be smooth Questions are rightly being raised about the impact of this realignment on the global economic recovery But the threats posed by China’s shadow banking sector are far more ominous for the world economy Shadow banking is an umbrella term that encompasses a variety of non-traditional lending activities designed to function outside normal regulatory control According to JPMorgan the Chinese shadow banking sector doubled between 2010 and 2012 to $6 trillion or about 70 per cent of the GDP Shadow banking fulfils the demand for credit from ventures including highly risky ones that may not get bank finance — in part due to excessive regulation and political interference — and is partially responsible for the surge of debt in the economy But the fact that the sector is harbouring toxic assets was most recently demonstrated last Friday when a solar energy equipment manufacturer defaulted — a first for China’s corporate bond history In January China Credit Company a shadow banking firm that had loaned $500 million — marketed by the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China — to an unlisted coal company was about to default While a bailout package was eventually arranged in this instance incidents such as these can touch off an unravelling of the sector It is doubtful whether policymakers who may not even know the extent of the risk can curtail shadow banking without cutting off the supply of finance to a large subsection of the economy While the Chinese financial system doesn’t have the kind of interlinkages that Western systems responsible for the 2008 meltdown do the effects of an implosion would be catastrophic on global recovery and investor sentiment For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsNew York | Published: August 29 2017 3:17 pm Bernard Tomic was returning to tournament play for the first time since his first round loss at Wimbledon (Source: AP) Top News Australian Bernard Tomic admitted he is “not the smartest person in the world” after exiting the US Open in the first round on Monday with a 3-6 6-3 6-4 6-4 defeat to Gilles Muller that could send him tumbling out of the top 150 Tomic was returning to tournament play for the first time since his first round loss at Wimbledon in July after which he said he was bored with tennis and had played at 50 percent for much of his career The 24-year-old started brightly by taking the first set off the 19th seed on Monday but his lack of match fitness told as despite frequent treatment from the trainer he lost the next three to bow out at the first hurdle in a third straight grand slam Having already plummeted from 39 to 146 in the rankings since Wimbledon Tomic now faces the very real prospect of being forced to request a wild card from Tennis Australia for his home grand slam in Melbourne in January In typically candid comments afterwards Tomic said he had his motivation back after his break but still felt “trapped” in the sport he has played fulltime since he was a child given his lack of other options to fund his lifestyle “I mean it’s tough Everyone has their own work their own job and it’s not like I can go and start real estate or something restaurants I’ve got no idea about that” he told the Australian Associated Press “Yes I can afford to do those things but I’ve got no idea My job’s only to play tennis and it’s all I know I’m not going to finish a doctor’s degree I’m not the smartest person in the world” Tomic’s failure to fulfil his huge potential has been a matter of great frustration to his compatriots and his US Open appearances have featured almost as many controversies as memorable victories He bowed out in first round last year after a foul-mouthed rant at a heckler in the crowd and was given the unflattering nickname of “Tomic the Tank Engine” after his second round capitulation against Andy Roddick in 2012 Tennis Australia head of performance Wally Masur warned him pre-tournament to be prepared for the grind of the minor tours if he fails to win a match at the US Open Tomic though reminded journalists he had battled back from a similarly low ranking after double hip surgery in 2014 “It’s no sort of threat for me” he added “I’ve been in this position before and I managed to turn it around quickly “It’s about being healthy the next six months to a year” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsThe Modi government suffered a minor “embarrassment” on Wednesday(9 March) when the Rajya Sabha forced a vote on the motion of thanks to the President and defeated the government But given the overwhelming majority of the opposition in the house – a situation that will not change till end-2016 —it makes no sense to think of this as a defeat The PM was happy to make his speech and the ruling benches made no great effort to avert this “embarrassment” The amendment which was appended to the motion of thanks says that constitutional provisions for making every voter eligible for election to local bodies should not be diluted a veiled reference to the minimum qualifications prescribed by the Rajasthan and Haryana governments for village sarpanches But this opposition “victory” was little more than a pinprick It was merely intended to show that the opposition can flex its muscles when needed The government side was happy to make its speeches and token attempts to stop the amendment and let things be Narendra Modi AP Since the government sought to deal with the “defeat” in a low-key manner the highlight of the motion of thanks was the Prime Minister’s address Even though his plea for allowing the motion of thanks to pass without change went unheeded we got some insights into what the real Narendra Modi approach to governance is A small bonus so to speak It was not one of his better speeches and the Prime Minister seemed dispassionate about the points he was making The rhetorical flourishes and small pokes at the opposition were few and far between He poked fun at the Congress efforts to equate attacks on the party as “hamla” on the whole opposition; he took a sideswipe at the Congress for claiming credit for various policies launched (or relaunched) by Modi by pointing out that schemes started in the 1980s by Rajiv Gandhi had still not achieved much He drew a subtle differentiation between those would like to get things done and those who like to take credit (“srey”) But the most interesting part of his speech related to the insight – offered repeatedly in his various anecdotes – that he is a mover of little things here and there that collectively add up to a qualitative change The big disappointment for Modi’s supporters has been that he is neither a Reagan nor a Thatcher in the Indian context Now in the light of what Modi said about his approach they should recalibrate expectations from him First the Prime Minister is an incrementalist and not a radical change enthusiast He believes in moving little things regularly rather than make big moves that make waves Even though the Economic Surveys of the past two years have repeatedly used the word “incrementalism” in contrast to “big bang” we have allowed Modi’s larger-than-life persona to make us continue to believe that he will do big things in big doses This is not the case Second he is a Big Concepts man but his real strength is in executing Little Ideas – by removing this block by easing that problem by pushing that project after taking a deep dive into specific areas He is about detail and not just the grand schema To be sure he likes making those big vision statements – Make in India Digital India Skill India Startup India etc – but what he actually does is fix the small things that matter For example when he talked about doubling farmer incomes few people believed it possible But he talked of farmers doing specific things – using soil cards to optimise fertiliser use earning money from growing sea weeds near the coastline growing timber on the borders between two farms and making price information from various markets available to farmers from 14 April this year Three the Prime Minister also explained his approach to good governance in four simple points: transparency accountability decentralisation and efficient delivery He established the transparency point by referring to the coal spectrum and (ongoing) mineral auctions that fetched good money for state exchequers It was while explaining accountability that we got a glimpse of his ability to get into details while trying to solve problems He apparently looked closely at 300 projects involving Rs 15 lakh crore of investment and studied the blocks that prevented them from taking off and tried to get them moving One hopes he has got those moving As for decentralisation perceptions about the concentration of power in the PMO have militated against this reality Among other things he explained how decisions on environment clearances were pushed down to regional offices and the states and how the railways had devolved powers for tenders to the zonal divisions At the centre itself Modi has ensured that only decisions involving outlays of over Rs 1000 crore come to cabinet; the rest can be decided by the ministries themselves Equally interesting was his approach to subsidies to the poor He firmly rejected the left criticism that he was implementing the direct benefits transfer scheme in order to eliminate beneficiaries; rather it was about ensuring that only the right people received subsidies He gave the example of Chandigarh where there were 30 lakh people receiving subsidised kerosene After Aadhaar-based identification non-eligible users were being weeded out What all this indicates is that Modi is neither the right-wing radical reformer that his supporters hoped he would be nor the anti-poor pro-rich centraliser that his political rivals accuse him of being He is a steady incrementalist who believes in fixing what’s broke and improving what’s not
