Acquisitions is one of the best ways to swap depreciating Yuan assets (to use as collateral) and turn them into foreign assets. As the likelihood that CNY will devalue increases, you will see more and more of these desperate deals.

Liquidity is way overrated. This obsession with liquidity led to financial innovation like CDOs. Often a focus to increase liquidity mis-calculates risk and overlooks the trade-off.

For a local transportation services, I'd prefer price consistency over a step-improvement in efficiency by liquidity measures like surge pricing. Dual-rate peak pricing is only acceptable because it is consistently applied at a fixed schedule.
