China's Economy In 2015 Mirrors U.S. In 2008

March 23, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Economic conditions in China in 2015 look like those in the United States in 2008, according to market analysts. In March, China's government lowered its 2015 GDP growth target to around 7 percent, its lowest in 11 years, compared with 7.4 percent in 2014. A slowdown in the real estate market, overcapacity at factories, and growing local debt are weighing down China's economy. China's central bank cut interest rates twice since November 2014, and allowed its banks to increase lending volumes. According to Gabriel Investments managing partner Richard Vague, the country is forecast to have its largest budget deficit since the international financial crisis this year.
