Maury Obstfeld, the IMF chief economist, says he is most worried about these knock-on effects in What are the channels through which China affects the global economy?
Neighbours with integrated supply chains such as Japan and South Korea are deeply affected, Germany is most at risk in Europe as a producer of capital goods to China and commodity specialists such as Australia also stand in the firing line.
One way to amplify the trade effects would be through a massive depreciation of the renminbi in an attempt to revive Chinese export-led growth. A currency war still seems some distance away. Weakness in oil and other commodity prices has pushed Russia and Brazil into deep recessions and hit the finances of Gulf states.
Global investment in oil extraction has slumped, undermining parts of the US economy and sectors in other countries hosting capital goods manufacturers. But low oil and commodity prices mostly redistribute economic prospects around the world rather than diminish them.
Oil producers lose, but consumers, including those in China itself, gain from the equivalent of a tax cut. The IMF still thinks the net effect of lower commodity prices is positive. At worst, it damps the otherwise more serious effects of lower-than-expected Chinese demand growth.
Inflation and monetary policy Whether it is a weaker renminbi making Chinese goods more affordable, lower commodity prices or reduced demand in the world economy, a China slowdown weakens inflationary pressures around the world, triggering fears of a global deflationary spiral and debt defaults.
But, if advanced economies genuinely appear to be suffering from flatlining prices, low inflation also gives policymakers additional leeway to keep monetary policy looser for longer in the US and UK and to add to quantitative easing in Europe.
Fears of a downward spiral are exaggerated. Many of these lower prices also increase the prosperity of consumers around the world and should boost demand, thereby offsetting Chinese deflationary forces. Confidence While all the other effects of China on the global economy are reasonably predictable and potentially have offsetting benefits, the pernicious effect of weaker confidence has the greatest potential to shock.
Whether it is through global financial market turmoil, the willingness of companies to invest or the desire of households to tighten their belts, confidence in the security of the global economy is both vital for prosperity and almost entirely unpredictable.
But as taught everyone, once confidence disappears, the effect on the global economy can be massive — potentially bringing down companies, banks, markets and the financial system. It is no wonder economists such as Andy Haldane, Bank of England chief economist, talk about emerging markets as potentially being the third leg of the global financial crisis.THE INTERNATIONAL EFFECTS OF CHINA’S GROWTH, TRADE AND EDUCATION BOOMS by Chinese and USA economies.
