Investing in Chinese Stocks

Posted by w_thames_the_d on June 18, 2011


From here

Bloomberg has a Chinese reverser merger stock index and the carnage across the entire group is unfathomable. The index is down 48% from January through early June and the pain shows no signs of abating as more and more villains are unmasked every week.

I’ve been calling this the Red Collar Crime Wave and have been counseling that investors find a better way to play China or to skip the theme entirely until we get a handle on just how poorly these companies are treating their investors.

China’s Ancient Legal System

Posted by w_thames_the_d on June 18, 2011


From China’s Long March toward Rule of Law-new (Randall Peerenboom)

The Imperial system showed clear signs of both Legalist and Confucian influence. The former was most apparent in the emphasis on codified laws and punishment. The codes were heavily penal in nature, and stipulated numerous carefully calibrated punishments. The Legalist concern for constraining the power and discretion of officials is also evident in the large number of regulations governing the behavior of officials.31

China’s Legal System

Posted by w_thames_the_d on June 18, 2011


From here China’s Long March toward Rule of Law-new (Randall Peerenboom)

One of the most striking aspects of the system is the virtually unlimited ability of parties to appeal.29 The accused or members of the accused’s family could ask the prefecture or circuit supervisor to reconsider the case. Parties could also appeal to travelling inspectors, and could even take their case all the way up to the emperor. In addition, review was obligatory in many instances where the punishment was severe.30 Indeed, during some periods, all death sentences had to be reviewed by the emperor.

China Too Corrupt for Anti-Corruption Site

Posted by w_thames_the_d on June 18, 2011


China is so corrupt that they can’t even begin to untangle the web of fraud from the clutches of the powers that be. I blogged here about an anti bribery website or sites in China that sprang up last week. The idea, springing from or knocking off an idea from India, was that if one was forced to pay a bribe then they could go online and report it. The problem is that the jackbooted thugs who run this place are calling the sites illegal and saying they must be registered. Therein lies the problem, you register and then you open this up and the jack booted thugs come to your house beat and sodomize you and then throw you into jail. So the chinese, being smart will not register the sites, thus they will be taken down.
I am sure glad that China was given the Olympics so they can improve the conditions of the commoner today…..(also posted here)

Selling People in China

Posted by w_thames_the_d on June 18, 2011


A while back it was reported in Chinese websites that workers were being sold for about U$61. The idea was that they were sold into indentured slave like conditions. I am not surprised as China has enslaved the mentally ill to be used as workers in brick kilns for years.
