Alan Simpson (Exclusively WSB)

With his trademark candor and wit, Alan Simpson provides his insights on the Presidency of Donald J. Trump, what’s going on in Congress, and possible sensible policy options for reforming immigration, the tax code, addressing the national deficit and debt, and assuring the solvency of Social Security. From his vantage point as the Co-Chairman of the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, Simpson provides his candid take on the hard and tough decisions that lie ahead for America’s new leaders. Always unafraid to speak his mind and a favorite of political media due to his humor and honesty, he Simpson sets his sights on American politics and the future of our Country and the Republican Party.

As Chinese financial markets grow larger and more integrated, volatility will no longer be contained to the accounts of niche emerging markets investors. Rapidly expanding financial flows to and from China, even in the context of capital controls, mean that shocks from Chinese markets will increasingly reverberate globally. U.S. and European regulators still struggle to establish coordinating mechanisms to manage bank failures and market turmoil on both sides of the Atlantic, but they have only the dimmest understanding of China’s largest financial institutions and Western exposures to a sharp Chinese downturn.

What can Western regulators do to improve transparency into China’s banking and insurance giants? In the next crisis, will Chinese officials engage openly with foreign counterparts to restore confidence in markets or will they revert to comfortable habits of pretending the problem will go away?
