Asian shares slide as fears grow

Asian stocks have fallen, taking their lead from weaker US shares, which have hit a fresh 12-year low.

In Japan, the benchmark Nikkei index dropped 3.5%, with markets in Australia and South Korea also lower.

Markets were hit by disappointment that China did not unveil new stimulus measures on Thursday and fears that General Motors might not survive…

Zhou Xiaochuan, China’s central bank chief, said on Friday that he saw signs of a recovery and that officials would act sooner rather than later to revive the economy.

Hong Kong’s Hang Seng fell 289.7 points, or 2.4%, to 11,921.5.

In Australia, the ASX 200 index 43.0 points, or 1.4%, to close at 3,145.5, which was its lowest close since August 2003.

South Korea’s Kospi index recovered from falling as much as 2% during the day to close down only 0.3% at 1,055.0.

The Sensex in Mumbai also recovered from a 1.8% early drop to trade up 134.9 points, or 1.7%, at 8,332.8.

And while Asia and much of the rest of the world seems to be looking to China to solve the economic/banking crises, the reality that the Bible shows that ultimately it will instead be the Europeans (though the Chinese are likely to have some involvement and may be significant contributors).
