What is Going on in China?

What is Going on in China
The news about China’s economic woes is wide spread and it seems that the equity markets in China are along for the ride. This has been felt even in the stock markets in the US since investors like Efraim Landa can become concerned about what impact China’s economy may have on the economy on a global level. Plenty of negative influences are heard because of the upheaval.

Is China okay?

It’s rather obvious even to the casual observer that everything is not running perfectly in China. However, there should be some thought given to the economic growth in China and perhaps there is a different perspective from which to view it. In 2015, the GDP of China has been estimated at more than $11 trillion. This is not actually too bad when you compare them to others like Germany and Japan who are both closing in on the United States at 7% growth factors. This is an enormous amount of growth considering it’s not been done before. China’s economy has lots of prospects and investors who are patient will likely be rewarded eventually.

History of the Fed

The Fed

Federal Reserve System

The Federal Reserve System is the central banking system of the United States.  Under a presidentially appointed Board of Governors located in Washington D.C., there is a network of 12 Federal Reserve Banks and 25 branches.  It was officially established under Woodrow Wilson and the Federal Reserve Act of 1913.

Early Beginnings of the Fed

This modern federal banking system traces its origins to the First National Bank that was established by Congress at the urging of Alexander Hamilton.  Many agrarian minded Americans were unsettled by the idea of such a powerful and extensive banking system and Congress refused to renew it after its twenty-year charter expired in 1811.  In response to inflation after the War of 1812, Congress decided to charter the Second National Bank of the United States.  However, after the passionate objections of President Andrew Jackson that a central bank was a threat to the liberties of the American people, Congress once again refused to renew the bank’s charter.  State chartered banks and unchartered “free banks” with no federal regulation carried America’s banking for the next quarter century.  This system was characterized by inadequate bank capital, risky loans, and insufficient reserves against bank notes.  Even after the National Banking Act of 1863 attempted to stabilize American banking by allowing for the creation of nationally chartered banks, giving them the sole power to issue bank notes, bank runs and financial panics ensued.  After multiple depressions in the economy, Congress began to take action, setting the stage for the emergence of a decentralized central banking system.  First, the Aldrich-Vreeland Act of 1908 established the National Monetary Commission to generate a long-term solution to the country’s serious banking and financial difficulties.  This Commission created a plan that called for one central institution, called the National Reserve Association, under the control of a board of primarily bankers, with the power to issue currency and multiple branches across the nation.  Receiving aggressive opposition, this plan was never passed but it did prepare the way for the passage of a banking and currency reform program where central banking was placed under public, rather than banker, control.
