What makes Chindia run?

According to Morgan Stanley's Andy Xie, participant in the "The Nature of Growth in China and India: Challenges Ahead and Implications for the Rest of the World," panel at the 2006 IMF/World Bank Annual Meeting in Singapore: The secret is fearless liquidity.

This [positive] sentiment bubble will likely burst along with the end of the growth cycle, in my view. The current global cycle is all about liquidity and risk appetite. I believe it will come down either with an inflation problem that forces central banks to withdraw liquidity or with a collapse of risk appetite due to an accident. Judging from the crowd size in our session, the bubble is quite alive.
