China: Stock Market May Be Entering 3 to 4 Years of "Winter"

Econintersect:  The major news rattling around cyberspace today concerns the possibility of equity collapse.  According to a Forbes post:

China stocks may be heading for more lows amid continuing international worries about the impact of Europe’s debt crisis on global growth. Given the wave of recent government efforts to support the stock market, the Securities Times in a surprisingly stark front-page article today said state-owned companies need to prepare for three- to- five years of “winter.” Citing Shao Ning, a top regulator at the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission, the paper said China’s economy has entered an era of contraction, and cost management will be an increasing factor in success.
