Why Rioting in China is a Risk

This quote says it all:

“The whole area is under curfew,” a local official who declined to be identified said. “Any groups of more than three people will be beaten without mercy.”

Not arrested, not detained… just beaten.

Any thoughts that China will be immune for the economic flu that is infecting the rest of the world should be put to rest.  The Chinese have some advantages, but they have a number of disadvantages as well.   There are rumors out there that Chinese electrical usage is dropping fast, which indicates less economic activity.    A bad retail holiday in the states could be an unhappy new year in Asia.
