Please join us for this online event for the launch of the upcoming report, The China Economic Risk Matrix, written by the Trustee Chair in Chinese Business and Economics’ non-resident senior associate Daniel Rosen, non-resident adjunct fellow Logan Wright, and Associate Director of the China Projects team at Rhodium Group, Lauren Gloudeman. Despite rising inefficiency, China’s financial system has served as the shock absorber that has helped China’s economy recover from the virus outbreak and maintain growth. But the same elements that have driven China’s recovery have also pushed China’s financial system deep into a gauntlet of systemic financial risks. The China Economic Risk Matrix is the combination of indicators of financial vulnerability that threaten to overwhelm Beijing’s policy tools to manage them, along with a novel, China-specific financial stress indicator. Building on the earlier CSIS volume, Credit and Credibility, this report explores the specific conditions and markets in which changes in government credibility can have a significant impact on systemic stability in China.

Following a presentation of the report’s key findings, Ann Rutledge of CreditSpectrum, Kenneth Kang of the IMF, and Michael Taylor of Moody’s Investors Service will provide commentary, moderated by Trustee Chair Scott Kennedy. The event will conclude with live Q&A with the audience.

This event is made possible by generous support from the Smith Richardson Foundation.
