If there’s one nation that can really move the stock market, it’s China. Asia’s largest economy controls just so much of Wall Street’s collective thought that when things are good or bad, it seems to move the world. Chinese PMI down? So’s the Dow Jones. New stimulus announced? Copper rallies. So when potential issues are brewing, investors should take notice. Take China’s “Ghost Cities” and subprime crisis for one. Here’s Bloomberg View’s William Pesek on China’s scary problem.
