The Chinese Leadership Crisis Looks Worse Than In 1989 – Business Insider

There is no credible source to confirm this, but we would not be surprised if the infighting among the top leadership is very serious.  Let’s face it, infighting in the Communist Party is not even news.  Cheng Li of the Brookings Institution, that Chinese leadership is in crisis, according to Daily Telegraph.  Cheng Li said that “This legitimacy crisis is worse than in 1989, and may be the worst in the history of the Communist Party. People are afraid that it could lead to revolution if it is not handled well.”.

We are not going to make any prognostication here about what will happen in Chinese political sphere.  We would just say this: that China has never been as stable as it looks, yet it is not easy either to have a truly catastrophic political crisis either.  Of course, we cannot rule out anything despite its low probability.  And needless to say, if something as serious as a catastrophic political crisis happens, whatever that means, the story in the economic side will be straight forward: in the worst case scenario, there is no pointing touching anything related to China at all.

Of course, that is absolutely not our base case.  Just beware of some black swans swimming around.
