For all of the talk about China and the economy, the big story on Wall Street is China’s stock market performance.
The stock market in China is booming.
China’s economy is growing.
And the stock market has been in freefall.
That is why some are now calling for China to be allowed to take back its market capitalization.
This week, that demand grew even louder.
On Monday, Chinese President Xi Jinping said he is open to opening up markets in China, even if it means selling off the country’s currency.
The Chinese government is in charge of the countrys economy, so what he’s talking about is selling off some of its assets.
China’s market capitalizations are bigger than the combined assets of the US, UK, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Japan, Spain, Portugal, and Brazil.
