Chinese companies are loaded with cheap cash. The problem is they are not spending it. This is frustrating policy makers who made a lot of effort to introduce liquidity into the Chinese market.

It’s the proverbial hiding your money under the pillow scenario playing out at present.
This will affect China’s already slowing economic growth.
