Washington is wrong about China’s economy

The US economy is weaker, and China’s stronger, than analysts believe.
Every indicator we examine – gross domestic product, purchasing managers’ indices, retail sales, consumer credit, total hours worked, and capital investment – points to an economy growing at slightly over 1%, not the 3.2% that the US administration has bragged about.

I would no more dream of blaming Trump than I would of giving him all of the credit for America's (flash-in-the-pan) 4% growth rate of a year or two ago! :)

They would not be our masters as we are not noted for being a servile people.

But just think of all the money to be made if you just tow the CCP line
