Xi said that the real driver for price hikes is not stockpiles of money, but the growth rate of the money supply.
"As long as the central bank can keep the M2 growth rate under control, inflation will remain a healthy range," he said.

"Chinese have become increasingly sensitive to their assets. It's the government's duty to establish a proper mechanism to monitor and adjust market expectations," Lu said.
"Without stable market expectations, any asset allocation by individual investors will be futile," he said.
