People's Daily Blames Investment Bank for Plunge
(Beijing) - China's official mouthpiece, the People's Daily, said December 1 that an international investment bank manipulated stock markets for its own gain and a group email that it sent to investors triggered off a plunge in share prices on November 12.
In a commentary contributed by Shi Jianxun, a professor at Tongji University,
an unnamed international investment bank allegedly sent emails to investors,
advising them to sell their shares. The article, titled "Where is China's stock
market heading in the next two decades?" said that rumors of impending stamp
taxes also sent the market into a tailspin.
