FX – China

China’s stock market problems are worth noting; if I were writing extemp questions right now, I’d have one about how the problems impact China’s economy, and another about how they impact the global economy. Here’s the quick read/listen on what has been going on:

Market’s Dive Could Delay Economic Reforms in China

Sloan – This is how the meltdown in China’s market ends – The little guy loses big

What China’s nerve-wracking stock market looks like from inside the country – the article includes several jokes circulating in China about the stock market issues, and they’d make a great extemp speech introduction for a question on this topic.
