A slowdown in China is the greatest threat to the global economy, Kenneth Rogoff, a professor of economics at Harvard University, told the BBC in an interview published on Monday.
"I think the economy is slowing down much more than the official figures show," Rogoff, who is a former chief economist of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), told the U.K. broadcaster. He added that China is going through a "big political revolution," hinting at Beijing's high-profile campaign to tackle corruption and transition its economy to being more consumer led.
"If you want to look at a part of the world that has a debt problem, look at China. They've seen credit fueled growth and these things don't go on forever," he said.
