Re: PRC Economy - New Reflections : April 20 2015

China’s total debt (private and govt) is north of 300%, federal govt’s debt is below 50% of GDP.

First number is very risky but the second is very robust. So if deleveraging happens central govt would be in pretty strong position to stabilize frayed nerves.
