"John president of the United States and now I'm seeing that the U. S. is looking extremely closely at Chinese companies listed on American financial markets this is in the context of the confrontation between the U. S. and Beijing over the abuse of the people of Hong Kong however their details here that we need help with and we Gordon and I go immediately to Roger Robinson Prague security studies institute Roger very good evening to you I read formally that as of February twenty nineteen another was a year before one hundred and fifty six Chinese companies with a market capitalization over trillion dollars we listed on US markets eleven of which were state owned that's according to the congressional mandated U. S. China economic and security review commission does that describe the universe of Chinese companies using our markets to sustain themselves and does that tell us that there is a new day after this excitement over looking coffee good evening to you Roger yeah thank you John I used to share the U. S. China economic and security review commission for a number of years and they have it right at least as far as they've gone that is listed in on of the New York Stock Exchange and nasdaq but unfortunately that doesn't near encompass the universe of Chinese companies in our capital markets for example are over five hundred such companies in the much less regulated over the counter market and we think that there are several hundred if not a thousand or more Chinese companies that have entered the portfolios of all hundred and fifty hundred sixty million Americans through indexes index providers going and buying or adding US stocks to their index directly from the St John and Shanghai exchanges without any diligence disclosure no compliance with federal federal securities laws and the like so we have a much bigger Chinese presence in our markets than most people understand garden Roger the president on Friday mentioned that he was going to have this whole issue of Chinese companies on American exchanges he was going to send it to his working group which is apparently a White House body who's on that working group and what do you expect that they'll do with this whole issue of Chinese compliance with US law well I'm not precisely sure Gordon I mean people are policy it really matters to these folks are I mean there's something called the plunge group that is the working group on financial markets in the past has been the chairman of the federal reserve secretary of treasury the chairman of the SEC and similar officials but they would have a much more benign you of this concern then most folks certainly in this case I hope the president has in mind for example Robert o'brien National Security Advisor being on that on that working group Larry Kudlow the director of the national economic council Peter Navarro others of that understand the scale of the threat so we don't really know right now what individuals will be involved in what direction they're going to take this but it is a very pressing concern the big companies that are mentioned in the news Ali Baba and the Chinese accompanies patcher China and scientists and pack that we can set them in one category which is that they've been listed for some time and we can hope there's some transparency but there's an excitement over locking coffee which I understand was listed on nasdaq in twenty nineteen is now been delisted what does that tell us about the way that the Czech Communist Party has used our capital markets Roger well sadly John this is also true of PetroChina and someone signed a pact that have been listed since basically two thousand the it makes no difference I can tell you for a fact that there's not one Chinese company on our markets that is today complying with Sarbanes Oxley Dodd Frank or other federal federal securities laws in addition they're not they're not abiding by material risk disclosures as required by the SEC so we have a a circumstance that Chinese companies receiving actual preferential treatment over there American corporate counterparts in our in our markets and they're they're not disclosing for example even their corporate financials so we have a complete black box and that goes a long way to explaining the three hundred and ten million dollars and made up revenues o'clock in coffee the call is that the plan that the way it did made up profits made it they just they just pick a number and put it down into their reporting and they thought they could get away with it they sure did and but then we've we certainly sent a signal of permissiveness I mean there was an agreement signed an MOU between the public company accounting oversight board the PCAOB which orders that are required of every American company they've never been there but live Chinese have consistently refused to accept such audits but they created an agreement with the China securities regulatory commission and basically in may again of twenty thirteen gave them a complete pass this was the Obama Biden administration so that they would not have to comply with these laws while they try to work out some kind of accommodation will seven years later nothing has happened whatsoever and we are dealing again with the black boxes I mean can't con pa can skews me gang may pharmaceutical sorry for the stumbling on the name it was a four point four billion dollars for John and so we have folks making up numbers there's no water which is absolutely key required by law and yet the the Chinese have been able to skirt these and it's it's inexplicable and wholly unacceptable Gordon you've been talking about this for years so finally something's going to happen or they just now I was talking about I think something's going to happen John because the situation that Roger talks about is inexplicable I mean here we have a series of frauds committed on U. S. investors and by the way Chinese companies have been doing this in other markets as well so here's a series of frauds on US investors they don't have the same standards of disclosure that every other company in the world must meet and we have it excusable delay and and in action from a series of American presidents this is just something that is outrageous a Roger D. investment class has lots of rules and due diligence and transparency lead the pack that's how they hire and fire that's the winners and losers were worth it in general have they been talking about this that they're investing their clients money in companies that are black boxes no they haven't they've been collecting fees are very regularly and I think that that's been their focus now they've been perfectly willing to look the other way on the lack of disclosure transparency audits and all of those standards of market behavior that are required not just expected of their U. S. corporate counterparts and so this is been a kind of wink and nod arrangement between Wall Street and Asian it's finally coming into the light of day after twenty years and probably two to three trillion dollars but the Chinese have taken out of our debt and equity markets in terms of fund raising which is really what this is about it explains why they seem to have that unlimited checking account to walk around with all the time so but the Senate for example passed unanimously legislation that said if the Chinese don't come into compliance with federal securities laws like everyone else that within three years they would be de registered or delisted from U. S. exchanges and stripped out of those indexes and exchange traded funds the problem with that is three years is like three hundred years I mean it's you use it it should be more like six months of them at the most could you have a question for Roger we have about a minute Roger during the Reagan administration how do you see that the U. S. now with regard to China as compared to where we were with the Soviet Union well frankly I think we're we're getting there at a very fast clip I think that we are dealing with existential threats that frankly even humble about the of the Soviet Union itself a Chinese concern is a much broader more sophisticated enemy than we've ever known and I can tell you that it's it's a it's it's are the principal threat to the country in the twenty first century I think the decoupling is going to accelerate I think that's proper and I'm but I believe it needs to be treated as what it is which is this the most important threats facing our nation Roger Robinson Prague security studies institute Gordon Chang at Gordon G.
