Kevin Gallagher on China and financial deregulation

Kevin Gallagher explains why financial deregulation in China would be a huge mistake. In his words:
"Rumor has it that China is set to accelerate the de-regulation of its financial system.

While that may be illiberal, there was a sound reason for this restriction: Every emerging market that has scrapped these regulations has had a major financial crisis and subsequent trouble with growth."
