Not so fast: China still has some economic leeway ahead of it.
Has the Chinese bubble burst? Many investors believe that China’s days of astounding growth have drawn to a close. The evidence seems bountiful – declining exports, an aging population and soaring wages that are sapping the country of its competitive advantage. In this succinct overview, professor James Woudhuysen concludes that it’s too soon to write the obituary of China’s economic miracle. He notes that increases in Chinese labor productivity have outpaced those of other developed nations. He also asserts that, because of its underinvestment in technology, China is just in the early stages of economic growth. getAbstract recommends this eye-opening report to investors and policy makers seeking a fresh analysis of the world’s second-largest economy.
