China Review News (CRN) recently reviewed an article published by Economic Information Daily on the lessons learned about the international credit rating system. The article pointed out that, after the Greek Credit Crisis, China was truly worried about the destructive power that the international credit rating system, which is controlled by three major organizations has. The various parties throughout all levels of the Chinese government and media came to the conclusion that China should have its own credit rating capabilities. With this background, the Chinese rating company Dagong Global Credit Rating released ratings of 50 typical countries. The article suggested that the three major rating organizations are biased and discriminate against developing countries. An example is that the ratings for China and India are even lower than Spain. The article also suggested that the Chinese government should stand behind Dagong and push the Chinese rating business in the U.S. market.
