Jim Chanos is among the most successful and certainly most well-known short-selling investors.

He recently spoke at the Wall Street Journal Conference. Some of his observations in the Q&A include:

- The last year reminds him of the late '90s: tough for short-sellers and stretched valuations.

- He thinks that the Chinese credit system is now being constrained by loan to deposit ratios and that shadow banking lending is now driving the bus.

- It doesn't appear to him that China learned anything from the U.S. collapse of that was created by the bubbles built in 2005 to 2006.
