Chinese Shares - ready for Mum and Dad?

News that a commercially-driven entity may decide how billions of investor's savings are deployed in the fast-growing Chinese Equity markets should set alarm bells ringing. After all, China is still in the grip of a communist dictatorship. Recent economic growth may well be impressive - unless you are belonging to the millions who have been pushed out of employment by cheap Chinese labor - but that should not mean that question of morality and fair play are forgotten in order to lure investors into a market that is anything but transparent - at least not as far as 'Western' Investors and Savers are concerned. Allowing index designers free reign over the fate of our Savings is totally irresponsible.
