China's Choice: Devalued Yuan or Increased Stimulus

President Xi Jinping said his signature anti-corruption campaign will not be eased and he’s determined to make China this year a place where "nobody dares to be corrupt.”

The anti-graft effort in 2016 will expand efforts to hunt down so-called "economic fugitives" who have fled overseas, the official Xinhua News Agency said, citing Xi’s speech at the beginning of a three-day meeting of the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection. After snaring about 100 high-ranking “tigers” and thousands of other mid-level officials, the campaign will also focus more on corruption at the local level in 2016, he said.
