Blog: Olly WehringChina's economy "overheating"

Olly Wehring | 14 January 2010

China's economy is in danger of  "overheating", according to a report on global risks published today (14 January).

The report, published annually by the World Economic Forum and a host of top insurance firms, warns that China's economy is more fragile than many believe.

"China's economy is in the process of overheating," Daniel Hoffmann, chief economist at Zurich Financial Services, told a press conference in London to mark the launch of the report.

China may have largely survived the financial crisis and global recession, but has largely done so by domestic credit growth, says the report, which describes the Chinese economy as a "key risk" to global economic stability.
