The chief executive of HSBC has stepped down after less than two years in the job, as the bank

The bank has also said it could cut nearly 5,000 jobs due to a weaker outlook, and the depar

Under Flint’s leadership, the bank has pivoted to Asia, which
accounted for more than half of its operating income in the second quarter.
HSBC Chairman Mark Tucker said talks over Flint’s future had been “going on for a while” and the decision was not taken lightly.上海千花网女神会所
“In the increasingly complex and challenging global environment in which the bank op
rates, the board believes a change is needed to meet the challenges that we face and to capture the very s

HSBC said it would look both internally and externally for a new leader and that Noel Q
uinn, head of the commercial banking division, will be interim CEO in the meantime.上海千花网
The 51-year-old Flint ran the bank’s retail and wealth management business be

top job and was known to be the favored selection of his predecessor, Stuart Gulliver.
上海千花网In an interview with the Financial Times on Monday, Tucker said: “This had noth
ing to do with personalities; this was a unanimous decision of the non-executive directors.”
Tucker denied that Flint was opposed to new cost cutting plans, which HSBC revealed on Monday would result in up to
4,700 job cuts, or 2 percent of its 237,685-strong global workforce. The move is e上海千花网女神会所

上海千花网女神会所Nicholas Lardy, an often-cited Washington-based expert on the Chinese economy, argues i
n his recent book The State Strikes Back: The End of Economic Reform in China that China could have co
上海千花网ntinued to grow at 10 percent per year throughout this decade if not for policy mistakes.
His core argument is that Japan and South Korea continued high growth r
ates until they reached GDP per capita equal to 60 to 70 percent of the US, so why can’t China?上海千花网
With all due respect, I think this is a silly argument. The early growth in both Japan and South Korea was based on for
上海千花网eign demand for exports. In South Korea, these exports were manufactured largely by state-led companies.
China is a much larger economy. There is not enough potential import demand in the worl

上海千花网女神会所Japan saw very fast economic growth from the 1950s to the 1970s based on technological c
atch-up and on fast export growth to the US. The export industries of Japan – mostly cars and electronics –
are extremely competitive. But, much of the domestic economy is protected and inefficient.上海千花网
A series of trade disputes with the US in the 1970s and 1980s culminat
上海千花网女神会所ed in the Plaza Accords in 1985 that limited Japanese exports to the US and forced Jap

Instead of opening-up and reforming its domestic economy, Japan first chose to use monetary stimulus in the late 1980s, which上海千花网
resulted in an immense real-estate bubble and led to the real-estate and stock market collapses in 1990 to 1992.
Through the 1990s and 2000s, Japan then tried to use very large infrastructure investm上海千花网女神会所
ents to stimulate the economy. This just resulted in negligible growth, ecological damage and a government-d
ebt-to-GDP ratio of more than 200 percent – by far the highest in the world. In contrast, China’s strategy of str
