Policy options and regulatory architecture affecting Chinese banking
CFA Chicago
While Chinese economy has continued to grow at 7-8 percent per annum, Chinese finance is undergoing dramatic changes which are not yet widely understood. In response to the global financial crisis in 2008-2009, a flood of credit was created to underwrite robust investment growth. Recently to prevent fears of overcapacity, Chinese policymakers began to engineer an economic slowdown through restrictions on formal lending to reform and re-balance the economy towards consumption. However, to date, credit continues to fuel investment through the "shadow banking" sector. This rapid credit growth has raised concerns about future defaults and their macro impact on the Chinese and global economy. Join us on Nov. 19 as three veteran analysts of China's economy present both the facts and their differing opinions on the evolution of the Chinese shadow banking system.

CFA Institute's Enterprising Investor
Central banks are printing rules almost as fast as they’re printing money. The consequences of these fast-multiplying directives — complicated, long-winded, and sometimes self-contradictory — is one topic at hand. Manipulated interest rates is a second. Distortion and mispricing of stocks, bonds, and currencies is a third. Skipping to the conclusion of this essay, Grant’s is worried.

3 ways to get investment in Europe right
World Economic Forum
The European Commission’s new president, Jean-Claude Juncker, has put public investment back on the agenda with his idea of a three-year €300 billion ($378 million) capital spending plan. The European Union’s leaders are expected to discuss his proposal in December. Everyone seems to agree that more investment would help to strengthen a worryingly feeble European economy. But, behind the superficial consensus, many questions remain unanswered.

Crain's Chicago Business
Rahm Emanuel's proposed new budget is getting no better than faint praise from the Civic Federation, with the Chicago watchdog group saying the mayor has made some tough decisions but ducked others.

DNAinfo Chicago
Discussion at the first of two 47th Ward budget town hall meetings focused as much on what's missing from the city's 2015 fiscal plan as what's included.
