    Is China's Old Growth Model Sustainable: a Big Bull vs. a Big Bear

    China's growth model propelled its economy to an average growth of 9.9% over the last 32 years, and will continue to grow, although at a slower rate, said Justin Yifu Lin, former Chief Economist at the World Bank in Washington. Yes, China's growth record is admirable but it is not sustainable, according to Dr. QIN Xiao, Chairman of the Boyuan Foundation, former Chairman of China Merchants Group, and member of the 11th Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference who earned his Ph.

    A brief preview of December data to help you kick-start 2013. Well, you've already got the PMIs with the HSBC one surprising on the side and the NBS/CFLP on the downside.

  • China's First PMI in 2013: Disappointing or Intentionally Conservative for Rainy Days Coming?

    China's First PMI in 2013: Disappointing or Intentionally Conservative for Rainy Days Coming?

    China's govt-backed NBS PMI came in at 50.6 in Dec, unchanged from Nov. It's below market consensus at 51.0 and our slightly more conservative forecast at 50.9. Though the 50.6 NBS PMI reading is below consensus and thus could be a bit disappointing, we expect markets won't turn bearish (see below). Simply put, we believe the Chinese economy and its asset markets will remain in a sweet spot in 1H13. However, as the street's China GDP growth consensus has been increasingly ratcheted up by exuberant forecasters, investors should be wary of getting too optimistic in coming months. ...
