Well I can’t believe it. You mean the economic data from the world’s Ultimate Crony Capitalist State is intentionally incorrect? You mean China’s entire economy might be overstated by 10-12%? (Doesn’t that put Japan back into the number 2 slot?) You mean those ghost city stories are for real? That the red dragon, though not toothless is lacking much of the fire we thought it had? I am shocked.
China is overbuilt, over leveraged, and over managed.
This is a great example of why the government should never manage the economy. The more government manages, the more it will mess things up. Over time this is nearly always true. It is absolutely true in China.

How can America compete with China’s subsidized industries in the 21st Century? Surely we will be left behind and the Red Dragon will come back to swallow us into its state-capitalism fed belly.
