Q: Who runs the banks in China?

There has been a lot written in 'the west' about irresponsible bankers and outrageous lending (mainly by politicians it must be said) leading to the economic woes currently being felt.  I have even heard some Brits saying we should 'nationalise' all banks, (a position I totally disagree with), as they 'caused' the recessions.

 

Now, I have read on Xinhua that the Chinese are looking to relax the 'monopoly' the Chinese banks currently enjoy. Is this dangerous, (for China) and who actually owns the Chinese banks? Or do they 'own' the government, or indeed are they one and the same?

 

Oh and please, fight nicely!

the big four banks are all stated owned. While the big four are listed on various stock exchanges the government holds the majority stake in all of them.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
