Bloomberg carries a great story in charts of China’s spectacular stock market performance. The Schenzen index has doubled this year alone.

Did China launch yet another massive fiscal stimulus?

Shamelessly copied from Marginial Revolution’s Tyler Cowen:

Given that non-financial total corporate debt is estimated by McKinsey to amount to $12.5tn, Chinese companies are paying on a nominal basis some $812bn in interest payments each year. In real terms, this amounts to $1.35tn. This is not only significantly more than China’s projected total industrial profits this year; it is slightly bigger than the size of a large emerging economy such as Mexico.

Tyler also writes about the success that Bihar had in increasing enrollment of girls in school by giving each schoolgirl a bicycle.

Triple conjunction

0

Photo taken of the triple conjunction of the Moon, Venus and Jupiter soon after sunset on the 25th of February 2012. This was taken with my cameraphone (Galaxy Note) so the quality leaves a little to be desired. But here is a perfect example of the adage, the best camera is the one you have with you. It was only for minutes that the moon stayed above the tree line after sunset and the alignment was spectacular. A lille bit of me wishes I had read up on this beforehand so I would have had the DSLR handy.
