  • China New Credit Declines as Money-Supply Growth Decelerates (Xin Zhou, Bloomberg) China's broadest measure of credit fell 19% year-over-year in March.

Excesses are being wrung out of the Chinese financial system but the government is still targeting a 7.5% growth objective for 2014. That may be a tough order to fill. Real estate over development will be one problem as office space vacancies of 30-50% are reported for many towns and cities.
