For a discussion on the developing crisis in the Chinese Peer-to-Peer (P2P) lending space, we welcomed back Expert Series regular Martin Chorzempa of the Peterson Institute.
In this conversation, Martin outlines a few scary scenarios for the future of the business which has seen total loans fall by about 25% to RMB 900bn in the last 3 months as the industry has come to a standstill. He discusses the current crisis and underlying causes, the inadequate regulatory response and the outlook for industry.
This conversation was recorded and sent to clients on September 7th.
