Even the IMF Has Thrown In the Towel On Global Recovery

It is most ominous for China. The place with the world’s biggest dollar problem has a lot riding on what may seem by comparison the small matter of tens even hundreds of billions in US$ repo liquidity.

More than a slowdown, more than a downturn, China is being pushed dangerously into reactionary territory.
