China’s resurgent construction boom | MacroBusiness

Societie General on China’s resurgence:

In our view, the most obvious underlying factor behind this recovery is credit. In Q1, increases in total credit exploded to CNY7.5tn, up 58% yoy and equivalent to 46.5% of nominal GDP – one of the highest ratios ever. Credit growth accelerated to 15.8% yoy to end-March, the quickest pace in 20 months.

Credit growing faster than nominal GDP is unsustainable in the long-term.
