When the USA grows at 4 percent, that is an economic boom, but at 1 percent, that is a slump. For China, 10 percent is an economic boom, but at 7 percent , that is a slump. That is due to the reason I mentioned before, because those starting from a lower base are expected to have higher growth rates. The fact is, the latest China data shows the economy growing just above 7 percent, and that is considered as a slowdown for China. Your wide range of 7-10 is laughable at best. I sincerely hope that China can achieve a soft landing, but you know you are trolling by posting an article from 2008 which is totally irrelevant to the discussion topics at CMF.
It seems your attempt to bait other posters here in your British bashing has failed, IQ88. Also, please stop that habit of collapsing your threads when you get outed, please show some class. LOL!
