While the world has been sidetracked by the never-ending Greek Debt Crisis, another economy with a GDP that is 40 times the size of Greece is giving signs of serious, even critical financial weakness. The world's second largest economy, and supposedly most-powerful "communist" nation, has seen its stock market enter a downward spiral that Beijing seems helpless to retard.

As the Chinese economy slowed down over the past year, China's equity market soared by 100 percent or more, creating the largest bubble in the Far East. Now, for the past three weeks, the Shanghai index has been witnessing a massive sell-off that has contracted its value by more than 30 percent. The government, fearing a financial panic and social instability as tens of millions of Chinese investors rush for the exits, has been trying every stratagem known to man to halt and reverse this slide, including compelling government companies to buy massive blocks of shares , cutting interest rates and temporarily halting trading in some companies. All to no avail.
