China Stimulated Its Economy Like Crazy After The Financial Crisis ... And Now The Nightmare Is
2013-06-18
Hyper stimulation, shrinking markets, excess capacity are looming problems in China. China cannot sell all that it produces. Inflation is increasing and growth decreasing. Housing prices are going up. They have troublesome bubbles too. A good companion article in "Financial Times" is referenced in the article.

#4  China cannot sell all that it produces.

Then just throw it away (what they've been doing, for practical purposes).
Or convert to producing war materials, and 'consume' them in a war someplace (what the world did 1939-45).
Or make lots of babies again to increase consumption.
