7.5%, Again!

Chinese economists predict another year of 7.5% growth.

To put this in perspective:

1) 7.5% annual GDP growth is about 3 times the long-term, normal growth rate of a robust, advanced economy.

2) This would represent an additional production of goods and services valued (nominally) at over $600 billion. That’s the entire annual economic output of Thailand and Malaysia combined.

3) This is an expansion of the pie, so it benefits everyone. The fact that China is become ever-more productive is good news, not just for China but also for the rest of the world. There will be more for everyone in the world.
