Bulls and bears are out in full force on China. CEIBS Professor Wang Jianmao warns in NHPR for the danger of complacency after three decades of growth, where the word crisis has been eliminated from the dictionary.
Wang Jianmao of the China Europe International Business School says some companies keep producing and producing as though China’s boom will never end.
“Because of the huge success of the past three decades, I have to say, made some Chinese people very arrogant,” says Wang. “They take this fast growth just for granted. They don’t believe China will have a crisis. The problem is: If you don’t believe you will have a crisis, you will have a crisis.”
