‘Zombie Company’ Apocalypse Looms in China | China Economy and Trade

zombie companies in China they're bad for economic growth and they're eating up money like a tasty brain but there's just no easy fix for China's coming zombie apocalypse welcome back to China uncensored I'm Chris Chappell zombies they're running amok in China and now I'm not talking about World War Z the book version where the zombie apocalypse is triggered by organ trafficking in China I'm talking about Chinese zombie companies and they're not as easy to kill as the Chinese Communist Party would like that's according to a study called the mystery of zombie enterprises stiff but deathless China's zombie enterprises are state-owned companies that are consistently unprofitable companies that in a free market would go bust but in China's state-managed economy they're artificially kept alive thanks to what the study's authors called repeated blood transfusions which makes them seem more like vampires than zombies vampires zombies these blood transfusions are state-sponsored loans and subsidies they're what make these failing zombie companies stiff but deathless these zombie companies are a problem for China's economy as a whole because they're unproductive they don't innovate and they don't contribute to economic growth just like real zombies the persistence of zombie enterprises not only occupies precious resources of the study says but also causes financing problems for other enterprises and lowers the production efficiency of the whole industry as this Legion of the undead stumbles along thanks to Chinese government subsidies it hurts productive companies by eating their brains or at least by eating up resources that productive companies would otherwise get according to the European Investment Bank UBS China's economy is becoming less and less efficient partially as a result compared to a get it go it now takes twice as much capital to create the same amount of GDP growth it's hard to pin down the true number of zombie firms in China because well the Chinese Communist Party is not real good at transparency in the same way that a brick wall is not real good at being a window official data from the state-owned assets supervision and administration Commission or si si si says there are about 2,000 zombie companies run by the central authorities but that's just a fraction add in all the zombie companies overseen by local governments and you get at least 10,000 but even that number is not easy to pinpoint because officials aren't really motivated to do accurate reporting this is a case where these local governments it seems a number of them have drawn up lists of zombie companies in their jurisdictions but are holding back on revealing those to the bank's and it's also the case we've heard that banking regulators and some of these provinces are also being kept in the dark and that was back in 2016 at the time there was a broad push to fix broken parts of the Chinese economy and Premier Li Keqiang launched an initiative for the active and safe disposal of zombie enterprises but fast forward three years and that still hasn't happened earlier this month the head of China's biggest aluminum producer warned that zombie enterprises are hampering China's economic transformation the zombie apocalypse is so nigh that Xi Jinping himself recently vowed to slay the zombie hordes once and for all he warned that China must be on guard against grey rhinos which are highly obvious yet ignored threats which is weird because in other countries people think of rhinos as endangered species that should be protected anyway back in December 11 top Chinese regulatory and policy making bodies got together and pledged to get rid of zombie companies by 2020 just like Premier Li Keqiang pledged to do back in 2016 but this time it's be for real and these regulators promised to publish a list of zombie companies within three months so that was December let's see January February March hey that's three months and no list instead we got only a statement on March 9th from Xiaoyu Ching head of the state assets regulator and he was like everything's fine state-owned enterprises are totally independent market players although I'm not sure I trust a guy who judging by this photo is probably an actual zombie himself I know what you're thinking that's just a joke that photo probably just had bad lighting no I'm serious I've looked through a lot of photos of Shia Ching and I'm pretty sure he's an actual zombie either that or he's personally giving blood transfusions to the zombies vampires zombies Xiao said that anybody who claims there's a systematic arrangement for state-owned companies to get subsidies from the Chinese state is spreading fake news because these companies are self operated self financed self sustained self disciplined and self developed except he's lying and he probably wants to eat your brains remember that report the mystery of zombie enterprises stiff but deathless turns out it's not that big of a mystery why zombie companies especially the biggest ones continue their long march of the undead brains sorry I meant jobs zombie ferns might pile mountains of bad debt on the banking system and hurt the economy in the long term by being unproductive but in the short term they provide jobs for the Chinese Communist Party jobs and economic prosperity are the only reasons they're still in power just ask driver Wang Wei he blames his lost job in the coal industry on the Chinese regime they laid off 1.8 million workers in several zombie enterprises I borrowed more than I could afford just to buy this truck says driver Wang Wei now no work I'm angry with the government so Wang Wei thinks the Chinese government is going the wrong way I guess you should know zombie companies operate on a simple formula they exist as a direct result of the resources and credit endorsements they receive from the government and the companies that offer a greater number of jobs receive more government subsidies and there are more poorly thought-out incentives local officials get job promotions if they meet employment targets in their regions so as long as a company provides jobs local officials try to protect it from getting shut down and as a result local officials hide bad companies from central regulators who might want to put them on lists of zombie companies to be eliminated sometimes local officials even help them get more loans through hidden off-balance-sheet transactions SNP is Jessica saying using some pretty colorful language to describe the risks around there saying that the debt that they are talking about this potential debt is like an iceberg with Titanic credit risks put that on top by the way of what we know are the official numbers in terms of debts GDP here in China 260 percent at the very least debt to GDP and it pretty comes out as some pretty frightening numbers and for people who've been around the block a few times like this retired businessman China's plans to kill off or restructure its horde of zombie companies is doomed to fail but come but the veneer could look at you and tell you some people go engineer you to go give it to em tell em a deal which do you achieve the trigger with that's injured to the chunk for the shooting weights ha-joon you just hold your she'd wanna do that before yeah and nobody wants to change themselves so what do you think about China's zombie company apocalypse leave your comments below and now it's time for me to answer a question from a member of our 50-cent army who supports China through the crowdfunding website patreon Shawn Connelly asks does the 50-cent army pledge level in any way refer to the Chinese company Tencent and if yes what is the deeper meaning behind it good question Shawn the term 50-cent army doesn't have anything to do with 10 cent or the rapper 50 cent the original term refers to how the Chinese Communist Party pays online commenters to manipulate public opinion by posting things online that support the party line in Chinese they're called the womb out dong which means 50-cent party they're sometimes also called the 50 cent army originally the name came about because they were supposedly paid the equivalent of half a Chinese dollar 50 cents per post when I first launched our patreon site back in 2015 I decided it would be clever to create our own group of supporters and call it the China uncensored 50 cent army I asked fans to contribute 50 cents or more per episode to support the show a year later credit-card companies made a new rule that the minimum pledge had to be $1 but I kept name 50-cent army thanks for your question Sean and thank you for joining the 50 cent army possibly by accident and thanks to all my 50 cent army soldiers who support China uncensored it's only because of your support that we've been able to keep this show going for so many years once again I'm Chris Chappell see you next time

  1. This is one channel that accomplishes two goals with seeming effortlessness behind which lies mountains of hard work: highly informative, and very funny.

  2. China is counting on exploiting other countries that are part of one belt one road initiative. Like it did with Venezuela and it's oil! The interest in the money loaned has to be paid back in oil… just the interest ,not the principal. What is the interest on billions…enough to pretty much own that oil!!

  3. The easy fix to chinese zombie companies(and the democrat answer to everything) is to have ALL the chinese citizens move to the U.S..

  4. State owned companies are as self financed as the USPS is. Thing is once they run out of money then the government rushes in to bail them out of bankruptcy to keep them going. Just stop doing that and the problem solves itself.

  5. Do Chinese CCP members hair grow grey??… It's always well kept and black even that of Winnie the Pooh
    Oops Xi pin pooh

  6. As soon as they said that that guys name was Wong Wei I died laughing and couldn't focus on anything the narrator was saying.

"Stop weaponizing our children"! YVO https://youtu.be/opQ1_O-TXmY

  9. "Just like real zombies"…? Chris says in this video but only if you consider any one who needs help the evil dead…! is that the final word from China uncensored or are you worse than anything Communist have ever demanded we all be school'd on. The test being your very life but first all those who dare show you love are now well on the road to becoming one of your elitist's evil dead.

    "Stop weaponizing our children"! YVO All the cash in the world is not worth one persons life and never will be. Bottom line zombies have been designed to train our youth to grow up ready to better accept the seperation of classes or cast syndicates for genocide…! https://youtu.be/opQ1_O-TXmY
