Is China Investing Too Much?
Already back in the 90s, Krugman famously argued that Asia's "tiger economies" were using more and more capital to achieve their high growth, whereas total factor productivity remained pretty constant. Based on this finding, he argued that the Asian "growth miracle" wasn't particularly miraculous after all. However, high amounts of capital investment don't necessarily imply inefficient production or overinvestment. This is only the case if the return on the capital employed is not good. Countries can have a different economic structure: For instance, the US has comparatively little ... market research, surveys and trends

The rise of neo-imperialist China
It rightly made news when China suddenly emerged as Greece��s economic savior of sorts. It happened around the time when credit ratings agency Moody��s had downgraded the country��s rating to junk level, which means that investing in Greece or lending it money was a high-risk proposition. Even though the EU and IMF had thrown it a credit line to bolster its credit-worthiness, the markets were not convinced. In Germany, the EU��s biggest economy, the move to bail out Greece wasn��t popular at all. The country faced economic ruin leading to political and social instability. The austerity regime imposed on Greece by the EU and IMF ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
My 2c on population – Australia is not an island

Meanwhile, within the Greens Party membership, it’s no secret that there is a longstanding dispute over how to deal with and communicate on the issue. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Just a thought keep coming....the whole world is depending a lot on China for last 2 decades and China too is coming to the expectations of it almost in all respects. But what if Chinese economy itself slows down? It is a cycle and every bubble, be it a property, stock or commodity, all has to go through it at one point of time or the other.

I will pray against it but just a hypothetical question and It may bring out some useful insights.....Thanks posted 4 months ago in Internationalization and Localization | Closed Share ...
