Comments Off on Weekly Roundup: Unemployment in China, RMB Manipulation, and Closing Shop in China

With so much going on in China, and only a limited amount of bandwidth, I have created this weekly post to highlight articles that I feel are (1) important, (2) relevant, and (3) interesting.

This week there are 3 articles that I have chosen to highlight as each are quite interesting, they are all relevant, and there are issues within each that I think you the reader should be aware of.

If you have an article that you feel needs to be mentioned, please do so in the comments section.

Unemployment in China
My good Friend Pierig from Wethica has put together another interesting article on what he is seeing from the factory floor. a social compliance auditor, I have found his insights very interesting as he is seeing the impacts far before anyone (bloggers, media, twitterheads) are, and he has a great perspective on what the big shift means for the little guys on the ground.

Why China’s Currency Manipulation Doesn’t Matter
Very interesting article on the fact that the RMB is not the real target, and that even if they were “manipulating the RMB”, the issue is still down the list of real items to be concerned with.

Downsizing or Liquidating a China Business
for some firms operating in China, the process of closing down an office, a factory, a business unit, or an entire company is going to become necessary… and the entire China Briefing this month is devoted to this topic.
