While China joined to WTO, under the joint action of economic crisis and accelerating the pace of opening up, the evolution process of China’s financial repression level has been changing. This paper takes 30 provincial-level panel data (not including data of Tibet, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan) from 2001 to 2015 as the research sample, calculates the regional financial repression level by referring to the existing research results, analyzes its temporal and spatial evolution law by using nuclear density and dynamic degree, and displays its evolution process by using quartile classification method through GIS technology. The research shows that: 1) The economic crisis has a positive impact on the level of regional financial restraining, and the areas under impact are mainly economically less developed areas, and there is a certain "Matthew effect" in the level of regional financial restraining during the period of economic crisis. 2) After the economic crisis, the government policy has gradually restored the level of financial development and gradually relieved the level of financial restraint; however, the government’s policy support for financial development is limited, and the reduction of financial restraining level needs to gradually increase the degree of financial marketization and rely on the market to promote the level of financial development. 3) According to the contrast of the level of financial suppression before and after the economic crisis, it is tried to put forward that the rise of financial restraining level is likely to predict the trend of economic downtrend. On this basis, it puts forward pertinent suggestions for reasonably controlling the level of financial restraint. Firstly, local governments should weigh the advantages and disadvantages of financial restraint and economic development, and implement appropriate financial restraint policies while maintaining healthy and stable economic development. Secondly, after 2012, China’s regional financial restraint level is relatively stable, but the economy has maintained a sustained growth state, so we can appropriately liberalize the supervision of financial institutions and the financial system, gradually reduce the level of financial restraint, steadily promote financial liberalization reform, as an opportunity to reduce the financing of small and medium-sized enterprises. Cost of capital, to achieve the financial services for the real economy, the national economy as a whole to achieve a new round of development. Thirdly, the local financial development can not only rely on the supervision and support of government policies, but also need to play the role of the market; while correctly interpreting the central financial development policy, the local characteristics, government policies and market conditions should be fully combined to develop and play the role of local financial characteristics, to achieve the financial field and the real economy. The fields complement each other and develop at the same time. Fourthly, according to the changes of financial restraint level before and after the economic crisis, this article tentatively puts forward that the financial restraint level can be used as a wind vane to judge the trend of economic operation. The government should grasp the trend of financial restraint as appropriate. When the financial restraint level presents an upward trend, the government should timely understand the trend of macroeconomic operation, through macro view control, prevent and weaken the adverse consequences that may lead to the economic crisis.
