    Understanding China's banks

    Life, Chris Baker, Published on 26/01/2017

    » Every couple of years now, a book appears predicting the imminent crisis, breakdown, collapse or disintegration of China. The professor Cassandra touting a recent example passed through Bangkok last week. Among such works there is a subset that focuses on finance, especially banking. These books and articles argue that China's banks are inefficient because of government control; that they are racking up debt, much of which is hidden; and that, unless they are quickly privatised, they will be the spark for the aforesaid crisis, breakdown, collapse, or disintegration.

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 26/01/2017

    » The iconic pansy patterns return to Finnish fashion and lifestyle brand Marimekko in deep, scarlet shades that are perfect for this weekend. Pick up their Mini Unikko crossbody bag or mug if you're a fan of this graphic flower -- the colour combo is a lot nicer than last season's olive green and orange. Their ready-to-wear collection also has a handful of bold but easy to mix-and-match pieces that bring back the Adam & Eve and Galleria prints. The Orla shirt is a casual pick that would look great with jeans, while the pieces in Adam print are relaxed yet dressy enough for any celebration.
