China Prohibits Local Media To Cover Ongoing Cash Crunch

China is so “fine” that it has resorted to the full central-planning manipulation trifecta: first making up data, then deleting data, and now outright censoring anyone who reports the data, especially data which reveals the suddenly illiquid state of the local banking system caught in the middle of the grand Likonomics experiment. FT reports that with (the extensively reported here) cash crunch roiling the Chinese economy, “propaganda authorities have told local media to tone down their reporting to help stabilise financial markets. In a directive written last week and transmitted over the past few days to newspapers and television stations, local propaganda departments of the Communist party instructed reporters to stop “hyping the so-called cash crunch” and to spread the message that the country’s markets are well stocked with money.” This is vaguely reminiscent of the US, only there those who describe the ugly truth behind the propaganda wholesale numbers are merely mocked and ridiculed as the tinfoil hat-wearing conspiracy theory gallery (until such time that one after another “theory” becomes “fact”) not censored. At least not yet.
