Chanos explained that just like the Europe and the U.S., it’s not that easy to control the complex 1.3 billion people economy. Concerning with the low Chinese inflation number, Chanos said it “is actually developer missed a big payment to another developer.” He believes in China, 70% of the economy is construction and 5% is exports.
