Jim Chanos on China

The one statement that got me: China turned capitalistic to save its socialist elite, and now America is turning socialist to protect its capitalist elite.

And: China’s building 30 billion square feet of commercial space. That’s a 5×5 feet area for every person in China.

I don’t have the pockets to go short China – or the means right now. But you can’t ignore his points – China is not Greece, but it could be quite as bad for markets.
