Now the Chinese government is embarking on a worldwide hunt to seize the properties with help from foreign governments, according to asset recovery and anti-corruption specialists.
Who's gonna pick up the Chinese hot money slack now?

Once the money has been safely laundered, there will be a lot of dumping; and I don't suppose the ''corrupt officials'' will be too bothered about a 10% or 15% loss on the original purchase price either.
