China Tech Investor is a weekly look at China’s tech companies through the lens of investment. Each week, hosts Elliott Zaagman and James Hull go through their watch list of publicly listed tech companies and also interview experts on issues affecting the macroeconomy and the stock prices of China’s tech companies.

Make sure you don’t miss anything. Check out our lineup of China tech podcasts.

In this episode, the guys are joined by tech founder and financial blogger Ming Zhao. They discuss the broader context of Evergrande’s growth and collapse, and what this means for the broader Chinese economy. Topics include China’s balance-sheet expansion, off-balance-sheet lending, and past instances of heavy leverage and collapse for Chinese firms.
