Glut of Chinese Goods Causes Global Deflation

Glut of Chinese Goods Pinches Global Economy    

Plants in China keep producing as growth falls, fueling deflationary pressure world-wide

「DONGYING, China— Liu Zijun built a thriving tire-manufacturing business when China’s economy was roaring ahead. But when China’s growth weakened, he had to cut prices to keep his business afloat.

Now the pain felt by industrialists such as Mr. Liu is reverberating across the globe, showing how China, once the world’s most reliable source of growth, is adding to deflationary pressures world-wide…….

這篇寫得很普通,但至少點出了兩項中國思惟(其實,台灣也不遑多讓):

1. 在投資上,沒有創意、習於拷貝他人之商業模式,終致產能盲目擴充。

2. 政府為了保住稅收和充分就業,祭出政策讓銀行提供低利貸款,終致無效率之工廠繼續擴大生產。

A fundamental mismatch of supply and demand haunts other industries. In 2013, Chinese authorities named 19 sectors plagued by overcapacity in the country, including cement, aluminum, copper, chemical fiber and paper.
(根本性的供需失調現象也出現在其他產業。2013年,中國政府點出一共有19項產業苦於產能過剩,包括水泥、鋁、銅、化纖、紙張等)

This has happened again and again in markets, but this was on a super scale,” said Daniel Yergin, vice chairman of the Colorado market-research firm IHS Inc. “People invest, but they don’t see what everybody else is doing at the same time.”
(這種狀況其實在市場上一再發生,但這次來的規模超大

依上所述,把罪過全推給中國(及其工廠)有無道理?

Internal Controls Can't Close Loopholes?

The origin of the problem is the the blank commercial papers. Buying and selling the commercial papers is the main business of the company, which can not operate without blank commercial papers. 妥善保管空白商業本票還有主管的印鑑,建立有效的核對方式 這其實是問題發生的最源頭,公司主要的業務就是票券的買賣,沒有空白的票生意就做不成了,那空白的商業本票就是公司跟他人交易當中最常會使用到的物品了,公司本來就應該好好保管,不然就容易使不肖之徒心存僥倖。國票公司針對空白本票的存放太過隨便,使楊瑞仁想拿多少就拿多少。另外對於公司裡面空白本票的存放數量也沒有紀錄,減少的數量跟當天成立契約的數量是否相符也沒有人在關心,雙重的內控失靈使楊瑞仁放心的進行犯罪計畫。 如果能夠將每天國票公司與客戶成立的各種券買賣契約建檔管理,那麼用成立票券買賣契約的數量與空白本票使用的數量來互相對照,就可以輕鬆了解剩下多少空白本票,而在有短少的情況下就可以及時發現了。 另一個源頭就是印鑑的保管,有的公司可能未了方便而將印鑑隨手放在辦公桌上,使需要的人可以自行取用,同時卻也增加了不該用的人來使用它的風險,可行的辦法是重要印鑑由專人保管,比如說公司內部的稽核單位,每一次經過用印的文件都予以建檔管理,方便稽核人員從事稽核之工作,比如可以將公司買賣商業本票之契約與該本票放再同一個資料夾當中方便核對,有票卻沒有契約那就一定有問題。…
