Bo Zhuang

Chief Economist and Director, China Research

Bo Zhuang joined Trusted Sources in 2007 as an economist and went to Beijing three years later to establish the Trusted Sources office which he heads. In his analysis he draws on his local experience, extensive travel through China and a network of expert sources. He focuses on China’s growth transition and the way its top-down policies affect the real economy. The main themes he covers include the country’s political-business cycle, shadow banking, municipal bonds, SOE reform, local government debt and the labour market. He has successfully called macro-economic developments since 2008, including growth, deflation, currency, reform, non-bank finance and debt.

Bo has a Master’s degree in economics from the University of Warwick and a Bachelor’s degree in economics and management from the University of London.
