“This could be even bigger than the US housing crisis,” warns senior Chinese auditor Chang Ke, as his accounting firm has all but stopped signing off on bond sales by local governments (as we warned most recently here). As the FT reports, Zhang’s firm “audited some local government bond issues and found them very dangerous,” as they don’t have strong debt-servicing abilities. “It is already out of control,” he continues, “the only thing you can do is issue new debt to repay the old,” he said. “But there will be some day down the line when this can’t go on.” With more than 2,800 counties having discovered the investment-vehicle-bond (a way to avoid the prohibition or directly raising debt), Zhang notes that this “frightening” evolution has led to a situation where he puts little faith in the government guarantee, advising that “when the time comes, it won’t be the government that assumes responsibility. It will be the accounting firms and the banks that do.”
