    A few weeks ago, you went to great lengths to try and convince me that you were an expact Chinese in India by including a image of your WAB profile. I would not be surprised that you have removed it since.

    Oh, so you read this board without logging in. Anyway, my citizenship is a secret. I might even be a Taiwanese. You can ask people around here, no one really knows. Some think I'm from the CIA, while some consider me to be Harry Potter.

    U.S-China divisions take centre stage at APEC summit

    U.S. Vice President Mike Pence said there would be no end to American tariffs until China changed its ways, after its president, Xi Jinping, warned that the shadow of protectionism and unilateralism was hanging over global growth

    Despite Trump, US MNCs flock to India for engineering talent

    Trump cannot solve this problem. If it is indeed a problem. Businesses will always flock to cheaper destinations.

    What the hell is a “marketization index,” and who compiles it? If, as the next paragraphs hints (without saying so), it is a measure of state ownership in the economy, then the key issue is poor data. Small companies always, in any developing economy, slip right through the cracks. As they are the most dynamic and fastest growing (and closing) companies in the economy, there is a major hole in any argument that purports to explain economic success by way of state sector shrinkage.

    The second mover example is closer to the mark, but the main sources of the China Miracle are (1) agricultural reform drawing workers to the countryside and creating surplus capital for investment in urban infrastructure; (2) deregulation permitting private employment; (3) gradual evolution of broadly predictable and reasonable regulatory structure; (4) Hong Kong (highly) risk capital injections early on; and (5) access to foreign markets at world tariff rates.

    Numbers 1, 4 and 5 have largely run their courses. Future growth is most likely to come from continued deregulation (more accurately: de-licensing) and the extremely long term – many decades – emergence of a strong civil society backed up by an independent and respected judiciary.

    Consumer goods sales were up 5.6% in real terms (if you believe the numbers) in October, and 9.2% in the first ten months of the year, both vis-a-vis 12 months ago.

    The “weakest in over 2 years” story is a straight forward lie. The purchasing managers' index is a useful tool for understanding an economy, except when minimally informed journalists get ahold of it and think it is the same as output, investment or trade. Industrial production was up 5.9% in October and 6.4% in January-October (insert data caveat).
