Eddie Wang Talked with Prof Yunus on Banking Etc

Mr Eddie Wang, former President of Minsheng Banking Corporation, talked with Prof Yunus during his recent visit in Hong Kong on banking, global economy etc… Extract: 尤努斯:2008年美國掀起了金融海嘯後,出現了一個有趣的現象。在一邊街,幾家跨國大銀行倒閉;在另一邊街,一些銀行家則很快活,依然向大財團借貸。那些銀行為何倒閉呢?主因是它們貪婪,投機作業,信奉幻想經濟(fantasy economy),在現實中卻炒賣輸光了。我們從事小額借貸業務,每分錢都是投入實體經濟(real economy)。我給您借貸,您去買一頭牛。您把牛養育成長,就是照顧了我的貸款,還貸給我,壞賬少於1%,而不是把資金用作炒賣而烟銷雲散。我認為現代金融業已死,有關機制不可行;我們有無數窮人需要養牛,但又不容易借到錢。這便是當前世界金融的癥結。 王浵世:現在中國的銀行仍在追求高端的大筆財團貸款,而不是看看基層人們的需要。上周我在上海向內地銀行界人士作了一場演講,令您傷感的是,在場發問:「王先生,您能否告訴我怎樣可以投入高端的客戶,讓我們可借出更多的錢」。這明顯是忽略了基層市場。如果叫他們捲起衣袖到山區,看看基層市場的需要,他們就說Thank you, Sir ! Not me。教授,您曾到中國提出改良窮人經濟是很好的建議,但中國政府似乎仍未有時間來面對這些層面的問題。您提倡的借貸模式須要強烈的熱情去執行,才能在中國開花結果。如果業界沒有激情,只能空談了。 尤努斯:不同層面的人民都有融資需要,政府要關愛人民。尤其是中國,作為社會主義國家,經濟不能只依賴富人,應是依賴全體不同階層的人民作為支柱,去發展整個經濟。中國需要不斷檢視和更新金融體制,而不是只是利用「資本主義體制」去建立「社會主義國家」。 Full interview at SCMP
