Rising China

With President Obama in China, I got to thinking about all the recent the economic data that is emerging from the aftermath of the recession.  Yes, I really do think about these things in my free time 🙂  About three weeks ago I talked a bit about the signs the US economy is showing of actual growth.  You can read here and here about GDP growth and a few of the dangers associated with using just one simplistic tool to measure economic output.

The NY Times has a very interesting piece that breaks apart the details and finds some interesting facts about our trade partner.  One big fact:  they’re growing.  FAST. Have a look here.  Lots to think about in the graphic, but we Americans might need to get comfortable with a new standard of living…
