As always, great links. I particularly enjoyed the top two. "China's Economic Growth" by Richard Fisher is one of few superb economny articles published recently.

I was relieved that Mr. Fisher mentioned purchasing-power-parity as you'd have gone to America and spanked him had he not.

Two "Little China" statistics jumped off the page for me: the U.S. has 19,497 airports; China, just 126 and on a straight U.S. dollar basis (not adjusted for purchasing power parity), their economy is roughly the size of California’s, 1/30 of US PER CAPITA GDP.

Amazing fugures.

A bit of perspective always helps. The difference is China's growth rate is more than double that of the US, but it is going off a much, much lower base.

I talked about this a while they are:
