Some major Wall Street banks are asking investors to pay more for Chinese goods and services in return for their funds.
The move is a sign of growing unease about China’s economic growth and its ability to deliver for its people.
But Wall Street has long been wary of Beijing’s ambitions.
The banks said Friday they expect to see more demand for services from the emerging market, and they will increase their spending on Chinese goods.
Wall Street isn’t just worried about China, it’s also worried about the U.S. economy The bank analysts said they expect China’s economy to expand about 3.8 percent this year and that China’s growth will likely slow to about 2.5 percent in 2018.
That would be well below the U-2 benchmark, a benchmark that measures growth at about 1.9 percent.
But the banks said they believe they have enough information about China and its economy to make that forecast.
In a separate note, the banks also said they plan to increase spending on U.K. goods in 2018 to make up for a shortfall in investment from overseas.
The banks said that if the U,S.
and Europe all grow by the same 3 percent rate, it would translate into annual U..
S.-U.K.-EU investment of $14 trillion by 2035.
While Wall Street hasn’t been as worried about what Beijing’s economic plans might look like, it is concerned about how much its money would be invested in emerging markets.
China’s economy has slowed significantly in recent years as it grapples with a slowing economy and a slowing stock market.
As the world’s second-largest economy, China is trying to diversify its economy away from relying on its own massive capital outlay, with the goal of boosting growth and diversifying away from its reliance on imports.
With a slowing economic growth, the Chinese economy could have to reduce investments in emerging economies, like Brazil, India, Indonesia and South Korea, to fund those investments, according to the banks.
But China’s leaders say the Chinese economic reforms are needed to create a more dynamic economy.
They say they are trying to bring down the price of capital in emerging countries and boost domestic demand.
Even so, the U’s Federal Reserve has said it will keep pumping money into China’s stock market in an effort to spur growth and boost the economy.
Investors are also worried China’s leadership may want to loosen restrictions on foreign investment in the economy, something that could undermine the country’s leadership.
Chinese President Xi Jinping has made the country one of the worlds largest growth drivers, a claim that is widely criticized by other leaders in the region.
A U.N. report released last month found China has spent nearly $70 billion a year on investments in other countries to the tune of about $20 trillion, but Beijing has maintained that the U.-2 benchmark is a meaningless measurement of economic activity. More:
