    Hong Kong shares plunged Monday and equity markets in Europe and the US slumped as the crisis at indebted property developer China Evergrande deepened and contagion rippled across financial markets. Shares of Evergrande and its subsidiaries tumbled along with other real estate stocks and bank and insurance shares which are seen as being affected by the fallout. Last week, Chinese authorities told major lenders not to expect interest payments from the firm this week. 

    US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said unless Congress raises or suspends the US debt ceiling, the government will run out of money to pay its bills sometime in October. Writing in a Wall Street Journal op-ed, she said "the overwhelming consensus among economists and Treasury officials of both parties is that failing to raise the debt limit would produce widespread economic catastrophe."
    On today’s Money Talk, we’re joined by Mark Michelson from IMA Asia and Will Denyer of Gavekal. With a view from Japan is Tokyo-based journalist and author, William Pesek.

    Hong Kong’s Financial Secretary, Paul Chan, warned on Sunday that the deficit in the current fiscal year will hit a record high of HK$300 billion, but an increase in stamp duty revenue last year helped mitigate the financial situation. He said it'll be difficult to "sweeten" the financial blueprint, but there will be a combination of measures to help alleviate people's burden, though the scale may not be as big as last year.

    Japan’s economic recovery performed better than expected in the final quarter of last year. GDP grew at an annualized pace of 12.7% from the prior three months, boosted by exports, business investment and consumer spending. Economists had been expecting a 10.1% expansion. For the full year, the economy contracted by a better than expected 4.8%.

    Global stocks ended Friday at a record high after investors poured a record US$58bn into global stock funds last week. The MSCI World Index closed at an all-time high and is up about 6% this year. In the US, the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite Index closed at records, taking their gains for the month to 5.9% and 7.8% respectively. In Hong Kong, the Hang Seng closed before the Lunar New Year holidays at its highest level since June 2018. Mainland markets saw their best return in seven years in the year of the rat.

    On today’s Money Talk, we’re joined by William Ma, Hong Kong-based investment executive and Michelle Lam of Societe Generale. With a view from Japan is Tokyo-based journalist and author William Pesek.
