Yahoo! Finance Tech Ticker brought Marc Faber to be judge.

Faber acknowledges there is excessive credit in China, but the oversupply of money has been used to build the infrastructure, education, and R&D, rather than consumed. And that is the difference between China and US.

Faber too is worried about the bubble burst in China, but he does not see it imminent. “ It is very difficult to pinpoint a day when China will implode, I don’t think it will happen right way”, he said.
