China’s cash crunch: Bear in the China shop

Illustrator’s Notes

This article left me with the impression that China has potential to rebalance their economy. While the article largely focuses on bearish Chinese lending, the point is made that the Chinese government has effective controls to bring back the bull. To represent this point I show a tamed bull, drinking tea in a china shop.
