Mike interviews Dinny McMahon.

In a recent episode, we delved into the intricate world of China’s economic landscape with author and China expert Dinny McMahon. The conversation focused on McMahon’s enlightening book, “China’s Great Wall of Debt.” This captivating dialogue exposed the unseen realities of China’s economic policies and their far-reaching impact.


The conversation began with a reflection on the unique experiences of homeowners in the USA during 2020, a time marked by a housing market boom. McMahon shared an intriguing perspective, suggesting that a decline in the Chinese property market might have influenced the boom. McMahon drew attention to the increasing trend of Chinese families investing in US properties, seeking both a safe haven for their assets and a hedge against the uncertainties arising from political decisions within China.

One significant revelation from the discussion was the shift in global perception of China’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. Drawing from his experience as a journalist, McMahon highlighted the disillusionment within China due to the severe lockdowns in 2022. The conversation pivoted to the diminishing faith in the Chinese government’s policies, prompting a surge in US real estate market investments. Beyond the real estate sector, McMahon emphasized the broader loss of faith in the Chinese government, with citizens seeking refuge in assets outside their home country, given the perceived political risks.

McMahon delved into the complexities of China’s economic challenges, ranging from demographic shifts to the changing role of the property market. With an aging and shrinking population, China is compelled to seek alternatives to drive its economy. McMahon shed light on President Xi Jinping’s vision of pushing the Chinese economy up the value chain through innovation and advanced manufacturing. Investing in AI, aviation, renewable energy, and electric vehicles represents a significant shift in China’s economic strategy.

A noteworthy segment of the discussion revolved around China’s prowess in innovation, particularly in the electric vehicle (EV) sector. McMahon highlighted the substantial investments and advancements in Chinese EVs, which are gaining traction domestically and making their mark on the global stage. This, coupled with China’s control over crucial components like batteries, poses a significant challenge to established players in the industry.

Beyond real estate, we explored potential concerns in the global economic landscape. The conversation touched upon the evolving concept of BRICS and the challenges of creating a common currency among vastly different economies. McMahon offered insights into China’s attempts to internationalize the renminbi and the hurdles faced due to the inherent trust in the US dollar.
