Abstract: In this paper , I will examine the China’s shadow banking for its potential risks. China, an expansion of risky and complicated financial practices in the world’s second-largest economy , what is the potential risk behind?

From Bloomberg, the definition of“shadow banking” encompasses risky investment products, lending between individuals, pawnshop and loan-shark operations in emerging markets, as well as more respectable activities like derivatives, money-market funds, securities lending and repurchase agreements at financial institutions
These activities are beyond the control regular banking system and regulators. Therefore are exempt from the limited regulations and oversight placed on the traditional banking sector. So it is hard to restrict risky lending for the regulators. In china, savings deposit rates of 3 percent which is lower than the target for inflation, combined with at least 90% of small businesses could not get bank loans which propelled the shadow-banking sector to an estimated $6 trillion.

Job Shadow

...I recall when I asked for a job shadowing opportunity from Charlene, the manager of Salvation Army, I was promised immediately and was scheduled in right away. Probably she thought I could help her out! Anyways, I did need it as I hoped to get that done as soon as I could. As that fell on a Tuesday, I imagined that would not be a busy place so that she might have more time for me about the business. The job shadow could be divided into two sections. The first one was on floor duties and the second was to participate in an annual meeting. If you think the store would just be so ordinary that only the lower income group should go then you might have to change your perception. It was a department store and it was more than a department store because you could easily feel their team spirit and was attracted by their quality customer service. You would not only be friendly treated but would be fully respected. Also I felt very much excited to be able to attend a staff meeting of a chained retail store. The staffs on the floor were busy all the time. Some were lifting and pulling heavy objects such as furniture for customers. Near the cashier counter the people in the line up were talking delightedly while the cashier pleasantly processed the transactions. I could see Charlene was busily greeting and answering customers’ questions. I almost felt the need to work and be one of them. When I was able to go into the production area I could see a big tank of clothes......

Shadow of Hate

...after an accidental gun discharge. This type of injustice was a result of hundreds of years of prejudice. German Americans were discriminated in the US between the years of 1914 and 1945. From the beginning to end of both World Wars Germans were labeled as bloodthirsty “Huns” or “Krauts”. A friend of my grandfather named Otto von Münnerstadt, both from Cincinnati, was found murdered after being brutally beaten to death in an alleyway in a German ghetto. Münnerstadt was found with an engraving of a swastika on his forehead and a sign around his neck labeled “KRAUT”. Throughout the history of the United States hatred toward people who are different from the American people when the Constitution stated that we are all the same. This “Shadow of Hate” has only brought darkness to our country and though we have made great leaps to end the darkness, there is still much to light up on the horizon....

Tavlas, as well as participants of the 3rd Annual Conference of the Hellenic Finance and Accounting Association (December 2004, Athens) for very helpful comments. The views expressed in this paper do not necessarily reflect those of the Bank of Greece. Correspondence: Panayiotis P. Athanasoglou, Economic Research Department, Bank of Greece, 21 E. Venizelos Ave., 102 50 Athens, Greece, Tel. +30210-320 2449 Email: pathanasoglou@bankofgreece. 1. Introduction During the last two decades the banking sector has experienced worldwide major transformations in its operating environment. Both external and domestic factors have affected its structure and performance. Despite the increased trend toward bank disintermediation observed in many countries, the role of banks remains central in financing economic activity in general and different segments of the market in particular. A sound and profitable banking sector is better able to withstand negative shocks and contribute to the stability of the financial system. Therefore, the determinants of bank performance have attracted the interest of academic research as well as of bank management, financial markets and bank supervisors. The majority of studies on bank profitability, such as Short (1979), Bourke (1989), Molyneux and Thornton (1992), Demirguc-Kunt and Huizinga (2000) and Goddard et al. (2004), use linear models to estimate the impact of various factors that may be important in......

Shadow Cities

...Predominantly within the post-modern, American context the "good life" is understood as the freedom and ability to do or posses whatever we want; a complete lack of nothing but the ability to posses anything one might desire. However, in Robert Neuwirth's book "Shadow Cities" readers are introduced to multiple people groups, more commonly known as "squatters", who's lifestyles and beliefs challenge what many might consider the good life as generally accepted by members of Western civilization. As Neuwirth takes us from Rocinha, Rio De Janeiro to Istanbul the reader is continuously faced with the same three issues plaguing our world: the fact that the worlds population is steadily increasing at an alarming rate, that everyone must have a place to live and that housing costs and must be lowered in order to provide the amount of houses necessary to sustain our world's growing population (Neuwirth xiii). In this paper I will seek to summarize Neuwirth's book, "Shadow Cities", beginning with a brief history of the squatter community. When comparing past and present examples of squatter communities Neuwirth begins by noting that, "very little has changed since the Middle Ages. The barracks of Rocinha, the mud huts of Kibera, the wooden shanties of Behrampada, or the original Gecekondu houses in Sarigazi are not far removed the dwellings that were common centuries ago in Europe and North America." With very little difference between communities of the past and present it becomes......

Online banking has made personal and business banking faster, more efficient and safer”. Every service offered by any company or institute have its own advantages and disadvantages. Same here internet banking is a service which is offered by banks. Its disadvantages are given as below: Advantages of Internet BankingThere are plenty of perks offered by banks to customers who adopt internet banking over the traditional visit physically to the nearest branch office. Convenience: This is the single most important benefits that outweigh any shortcoming of internet banking. Making transactions and payments right from the comfort of home or office at the click of a button without even having to step out is a facility none would like to forego. Keeping a track of accounts through the internet is much faster and convenient as compared to going to the bank for the same. Even non transactional facilities like ordering check books online, updating accounts, enquiring about interest rates of various financial products etc become much simpler on the internet. Better Rates: The banks stand to gain significantly by the use of internet banking as it implies lesser physical effort from their end. The need to acquire larger spaces for offices and employ more staff to deal with the customers is......

Shadow Banking

...Shadow Banking in China: Boon to Bane The shadow banking system is a term for the collection of non-bank financial intermediaries that provide services similar to traditional commercial banks. Shadow banking, in other words, is a system that is governed by a coterie of financial intermediaries that carry out traditional banking functions like borrowing and lending but in a way that is loosely connected with the traditional functions of depository institutions. Examples of important components of the shadow banking system include securitization vehicles, asset-backed commercial paper (ABCP) conduits, money market mutual funds, markets for repurchase agreements (repos), investment banks, and mortgage companies." Shadow banking has grown in importance to rival traditional depository banking and was a primary factor in the subprime mortgage crisis of 2007-2008 and global recession that followed. Shadow banking is sometimes said to include entities such as hedge funds, money market funds, structured investment vehicles (SIV), "credit investment funds, exchange-traded funds, but the meaning and scope of shadow banking is a matter of much debate. It is said that commercial as well as investment banks conduct much of their business in the shadow banking system, but most are generally classified as shadow banking institutions themselves. RISK OR VULNERABILITY: Shadow banks, since they are not covered by the same prudential regulations as depository banks, can afford to have a......

Shadow of a Gunman Character Analysis

...Shadow of a Gunman Character Analysis – Bradley Mallon Tommy Owens Tommy is a source of humour in the play, as his over-the-top antics make him very enjoyable to watch on stage. He is said to have had ‘a few drinks already, and although he is not drunk he has had enough to make him very talkative’. He enters the play by interrupting a romantic scene between Davoren and Minnie, which instantly makes the audience feel annoyed by his presence. He believes Davoren is in the IRA, and tries his best to impress Davoren through his patriotic singing of sectarian songs of freedom and war, almost as if he thinks he is auditioning for the IRA. He has poor social etiquette, as he doesn’t understand that Davoren and Minnie are not enjoying his presence, and he bursts into song mid-conversation at random moments. If I were portraying this character I would have him energetically pacing up and down the stage, while gesticulating excessively and passionately along to what he is saying. When he sings I would take of my hat and hold it against my heart in a strong soldiers position, to show my unnecessary patriotism and create humour as my passion would be completely unwarranted. Mrs. Henderson Mrs. Henderson is described as being a woman who is larger than life, and also physically larger than everyone else. She is said to ‘dominate the room’ with her confidence and also ‘occupy the whole of it’. Her confident and bombastic nature juxtaposes with the quiet and cowering presence of Mr.......

Shadow of Slavery

...In the Shadow of Slavery Chapters 1 to 3 1. Highlights: In a short paragraph, describe the three most important events in this section of the book? In class be prepared to give reasons why you chose those events. I consider New Amsterdam to be an important event because it established the first lots designated for half-free blacks, thus giving them hope. Another important event was the New York Manumission Society in 1785. It helped gather new allies in the abolitionist’s movement because it convinced white New Yorkers that slavery was bad. The third important event was the war of 1812. It was important because blacks volunteered to help with war related labor to show that they were not enemies and were part of the same country. 2. Historical Context: Relate the material in this section of the book to your textbook. Give at least three examples of how the material in the Shadow of Slavery relates to your textbook * Struggles African-Americans faced as slaves. * War of 1812 * The emancipation era. 3. Golden Line: Select one passage from this section and discuss why you think it is important. Make sure to include the quotation and page number. “The number of free blacks in New York City continued to increase as masters released their slaves from bondage ahead of the schedule laid out in the emancipation law. Blacks during this time displayed a conscious political activism as well as a social and cultural presence in the city.” Page 92. I......

Shadow a Leader

...I chose to Shadow a Leader project from 4 topics that were given to the student by our instructor to choose from. This project is very interesting where we have to shadow a leader for 10 hours to know about his leadership style. I shadowed Sam Shah for 10 hours. He is a realtor at RE/MAX by profession. I have seen how he led our community since last 8 years. He is a very energetic leader and always supports our community. Every year Sam and his team organises Navratri Festival in Edmonton which is generally for 5-6 nights (4-5 hours per night). Navratri is a Hindu festival of worship and dance which is generally for straight 9 nights but in Canada people only organise for 5-6 nights (Fri, Sat & Sun) for two weekends due to lack of time on weekdays. Sam is one of the senior committee member of Alberta Gujarati Association. He is very selfless and dedicate most of his time for organising this event compare to other members. Besides organising Navratri Festival, he also organises sports events and picnics. He has some sort of power in his personality which motivates others to join him. He also has his own cricket club with 35 members who plays in Edmonton District & Cricket league during spring and summer season. I have seen him leading his cricket team to the finals for straight years. So based on seeing all his work and leadership in our community I decided to shadow him for 10 hours.

But are we taking the time to step back and ask some basic questions: What is shadow banking, where did it come from, how did it operate, what role did it play in recent financial crisis and how do we deal with it going forward?
