The Great Depression II

Fri May 11, 2007 12:35 pm

This time it will start in China.

"Xiao Feng, a former investment consultant at a futures company in Nanjing, put his three apartments and two vehicles - worth 5 million yuan - up as collateral days ago to get a 10 million yuan loan to invest in the stock market.

But the cost of borrowing is high - with an annual interest rate of 25 percent, he'll have to pay the lender 2.5 million yuan in interest at the end of the year, reported the Nanjing Morning Post on Wednesday."

Damn, that's crazy!  Wow!

Wouldn't want to be borrowing in China right now.
