Kyle Bass: China's $40 Trillion Banking System Has "Largest Imbalances I've Ever Seen**

• zerohedge.com by Tyler Durden

However, Bass – unlike a handful of other former China bears who've been forced to scale back, or even reverse, their positions – has said that he is standing by his belief that China's corporate sector is massively overleveraged, and overdue for a collapse that could destabilize the global economy. Chinese banks, according to Bass, have more than $40 trillion in assets held against $2 trillion in equity.

The dollar's bull run against the yuan last year helped spark capital outflows as wealthy Chinese worried about the depreciation of their currency. In response, the PBOC tightened restrictions on foreign-exchange transactions for individuals, local companies – quashing a roaring international M&A boom – and even foreign companies, which in some cases have struggled to pull their money out of the world's second-largest economy.
