Expert comment on China cutting interest rates after the market turmoil

Expert Kamel Mellahi, of Warwick_Business_School_Scarman_road_view, comment on China cutting interest rates. Mellahi is Professor of Strategic Management and researches emerging markets.He said: “The market is looking for some strong signs that China has enough ammunition and more importantly it is willing to use it effectively to weather this storm. The cut of interest rates by 0.25 per cent and lowering the bank reserve requirement ratio by 0.5 per cent may calm the stock market turmoil, but does not address the underlying causes”The devaluation of the yuan, a decline in exports, and multiple signs that China’s economic pulse is slowing down at a much faster pace than expected have created a toxic cocktail, fuelling uncertainty and eroding confidence in the turnaround of the Chinese economy. The Chinese economy has hit some rough weather for sure. But is it a passing storm? I think so. What we are seeing now is a dress rehearsal of things to come. The Chinese economy is going to be on this bumpy road for a while and it will have ebbs and flows that will no doubt have a serious impact on the global economy.”The devaluation of the yuan was widely perceived as an export boosting measure to aid economic growth, which only fuelled concern about the health of the Chinese economy. But the devaluation may not be sufficient enough to boost export demand enough to achieve this year’s seven per cent growth target.”With $4 trillion of bank deposits, China still has the financial firepower to alleviate market pressure. But the Government’s reluctance to initially interfere aggressively to calm markets around the world suggests that China has finally decided to let market forces play a bigger role in deciding the value of the currency.”China is concerned that aggressive interference in the market may sow the seeds for future problems especially worsening the credit growth which is already high and could go out of control.”
