China: Getting Richer Still
In the last quarter of 2009, China's GDP growth rate again approached 10%. While the global financial crisis had certainly hurt - causing layoffs of as many as 20 million factory workers - a huge stimulus package on top of continuing domestic demand had restored economic growth from its sharp, export-led stump. Now, Hu Jintao and Wen Jiabao could return their attention to job growth, income distribution, resource allocation, excessive reserve accumulation and the environment.
