Benchmark inter-bank lending in China briefly topped 13.44 percent before settling down to 6.48 percent Monday. Investors reading between the lines understood the bank\'s message to mean that China\'s new leadership was guiding a slowdown in the country\'s economic growth as it deals with a recession in Europe and attempts to increase domestic demand.
