Post-Olympics China: Synchronized Global Downturn

SAN RAMON, CA--(Marketwire - August 18, 2008) - The Fairview Group, Inc. (TFG), a market research firm serving mutual and hedge fund managers, announced today that its Asia office has just released a special report on post-Olympics China that warns of a synchronized Global downturn:

"After the Olympics, expect China's leadership to undergo a thorough housecleaning to resolve many of the problems that have accumulated in the past decade. Steps taken to maintain social stability -- such as holding down energy, commodity and food prices -- will likely expire. At the same time, the Chinese financial system is likely to be the target of reforms, resulting in the recognition of many troubled or bad loans and the replacement of staff at the institutions that made them. In this shuffle, it is likely that the policy of RMB appreciation will be revisited and perhaps, the RMB will be permitted to either stabilize or decline to help hard-pressed export industries."

The 9-page report provides insights from our staff with access to high levels of the Chinese government and industrial leaders. Section topics include:

Executive Summary
The Beijing Olympics Bubble
Olympics: Soft Costs vs. Hard Costs
