Will China Create Its Own Stablecoin?

Through a previous article, we have made it clear that no, China does not hate blockchain technology in general and, on the contrary, is interested in putting it to good use as long as it is able to control the end result. This state of affairs may seem ironic in light of the fact that,

Does China Hate Blockchain Technology?

In a previous article, we have made it clear that China tends to have a pronounced love/hate (with more of an emphasis on the “hate” dimension) relationship with bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, primarily due to the fact that cryptocurrencies can represent a capital flight option. In other words, Chinese citizens who want to do anything

Is China a Maturing or Mature Economy/Market?

Only the most recklessly optimistic investors would have assumed that the let’s say pre-2010 economic growth trajectory of China can be maintained indefinitely, with yearly GDP growth rages in the double digits. While such a trajectory was not only possible but downright required back when China was a much poorer nation if the country were

China’s Transportation Sector: Problematic Polluter or Future-Oriented Industry

It should come as no surprise that China’s transportation industry has experienced tremendous growth over the past decades because at the end of the day, the transportation sector tends to be one of the most interconnected components of any economy… China in no way represents an exception in this respect.

China and the USSR: Ideological Common Denominators, Past Challenges and Modern-Day Russian Perspectives

Religion in China: A Brief Overview

Thinking you can become a balanced investor in Chinese assets without a firm grasp on at the very least the basics with respect to culture would be misguided at best. And having a firm grasp on “all things culture” without including religion into the mix would be (severely) sub-optimal, so let us take a few

(How) Can Bank Runs Occur in China?

As peculiar as it may seem, many analysts believe that one of the “perks” associated with authoritarian governance is represented by the fact that one can “have everything under control” when it comes to the main follies of capitalism: excessive greed, excessive fear, manic-depressive behavior which leads to anything from irrational exuberance on the way

Can (and Will) China Influence Other Nations?

Those of us who live in let’s say less than dominant countries (nations which have never been economic or military superpowers) like to believe our history was remarkably unique. Realistically speaking, however, that is usually not entirely true. Why? Simply because an economic superpower does not merely export products and services, it also tends to

Could China Collapse? A Socio-Politico-Economic Perspective

“Yes, thank you for reading” would be a superficially straightforward answer. Here at ChinaFund.com, however, those of you who are not first-time readers are most likely well aware of the fact that we pride ourselves in digging deep. And in precisely that spirit, we want to make it perfectly clear right from the beginning that
