Should we be worried about China’s economic slowdown? | DW News


Once upon a time, Chinese economic performance
wasn’t global news. Those days are long gone. The country’s growth rate now acts as an indicator
for the health of the entire world’s economy. No wonder then that this announcement was
so hotly anticipated: According to preliminary estimates, the total
value of China’s GDP was 90.03 trillion yuan, a 6.6-percent year-on-year increase as calculated
by comparable price. That outstripped the anticipated goal of around
6.5 percent. 6.6 percent. It may not sound too shabby. But take a look at this:
A decade ago, Chinese economic growth was hovering around 10 percent. In the years since then, it’s slowed steadily
.. And what’s worrying investors is that no one knows when that decline is going to end. The reasons for China’s slowdown are manifold. Domestic issues, like a slowing property market
are putting pressure on growth. But even more worrying to the global markets
is the continuing trade dispute with the United States. The two countries are currently holding a
90-day trade truce which their leaders agreed to after dining together at the G20 summit
in Argentina back in November. Further trade talks are set to take place
at the end of January. But after months of volatility, the prospect
of a resolution is far from certain. A further escalation could have a dramatic
impact on the Chinese economy – and by extension the rest of the world too.

  1. I'm more worried about their autocratic values and the absence of respect for privacy.
    Add to that the lack or respect for patents…
    They may be good trading partners though.

  2. You should be much more worried about the EU economy, in particular Germany, which is projected to do much worse this year than China.

  3. China's economy is being purposely slowed down by the Chinese goverment to curb inflation. They did the same thing in the 1990s. They are doing this by cutting goverment lending to private corporations and businesses back in China and government spending. They are cutting the huge influx of money they started pouring into their economy in the aftermath of the 2008. They are are also combating debt which rise extremely high as a result of their stimulus for their economy after 2008. And the same time they are transitioning from a low tech manufacturing economy into a high tech manufacturing industry, services like e-commerce, AI, 5G, development and research. China's plan in the 2020s is to surpass the West technologically. That is their 2025 project and for that they are having to complete reform their economy, society, and education system. These are truly fascinating times for the rest of world but incredibly frightening times if you are a Western power. By 2030 China will be wealthier and on pair or more technologically advanced than the US.

  4. No I think you people should care your problems than we Chinese problems.We might mean to be just like? And Dont invented these banana people to explain any more, west econmic model dont fit in China.

    governmental agencies worldwide including local authorities.

     

    Julian Casablancas is the bloodline descendant of Rudolf MacLeod,
    Soulmate of Mata Hari. Julian
    Casablancas’ personal goal was not to damage himself and his Soulmate
    relationship. This underworld assigned den of sexual feigning service saboteurs
    was entrapment, a plot devised to make Julian Casablancas “over with”, that is,
    acting on burnt out, negative perspective; hellbound. The goal is to utilize
    Julian Casablancas to get to his Soulmate who lacks the punishment to be
    approached otherwise. Silencing information is the end that the Russian
    underworld seeks

     

    Irina Shiek with embodiment from the Higher Mother of Amy Knorr feigns
    the actual appearance of Mata Hari who had green eyes. Online photos and
    published go through a multi step distortion process.

    The Russian underworld would not let Julian Casablancas be the project
    manager of his own music career unless he used a particular group of sexual
    feigning services which includes the above list with Rose McGowan (the real
    Rocio Durcal straight up), Gwen Stefani (the real Joan rivers), Polita Barnes
    (The real 'over with' Joan Gardner straight up). The entire group of feigning
    services feigned both himself and his Soulmate until Julian Casablancas was
    "used up", that is,
    depleted, greyish in color, sickly and morose.

     

    Jennifer Lopez is the descendant of Elaine of Scotland, the real

    or another public figure in style or poise . She is his #3 roster spouse but
    she feigns his Soulmate which he gave her credit for 100%, except for the
    current descendant and Kuan Yin which went to #5 spouse Bjork, the real Rennee
    Zelleweger. Marilyn Monroe "doesn't cut it" because Julian
    Casablancas reperceived the sexual identity of Marilyn Monroe onto Jennifer Lopez,
    Bjork, Dormant Fixed Twin Soul Juliet Joslin who is the real Cynthia Nixon,
    Lisa Bullock the (over with) real Erin Moran, and Britney Spears an Amy Knorr
    impersonator who is the real (lost soul) Stevie Nicks. Note: Arsinoe is the

  6. The EU is stagnant, money goes to the few, people are protesting(Yellow Vest), the EU should be worried about their own mismanagment and corruption at the top.

  7. You know someone's native language is German as soon as you hear them say "since 30 years" instead of "for 30 years"… even otherwise perfect English speakers seem to still say this

  8. the world should be at ease with chinese GROWTH slowing down. it is way more healthier.

    if you put your fund with any fund manager, could you expect to see A 10% increase yoy for 30+yrs?

  9. Americans are the most terrible things ever exist in the world , massacre millions people in middle East and the West still gave them Nobel Peace Prize. The world need more strong countries to counter Americans brutal aggressive behaviors.

  10. No body listens to what China Leaders wanted to do to its economy just a couple of years back. A new normal growth of 6.5%, less pollution, more internal consumption instead of export, eradication of poverty by 2020, a moderately prosperous nation by the next decade. Last but not least a strong nation able to defend its sovereignty

  11. China Is a Dangerous Rival. Enough with the endless talks and handshakes. We need to untie the American economy from China!

  12. Maturing economies have a slower growth rate than emerging ones. Think of this way, compare the added value of a subsistence farm converted to a factory. Then consider the added value of a factory to a commercial building. The first step adds way, way more value than the second.

  13. Economic slowdown is likely during corrections. It needs to be tackled effectively by improving relations with like minded countries. Trade between countries with similar interests should be started and re organization is necessary. Each country should consider the impact on like minded countries and everyone should work together keeping in consideration the interest of all like minded countries. Some reduction in wasteful expenditure needs to be done by companies without affecting the genuine workers.

  14. How long can they continue building massive ghost cities, sinking all that capital into developments that don't produce any returns, without serious consequences? Growth of 6.6% is terrific for most, but the truth is a significant element of the GDP growth they've seen over the past decade has been in speculative real estate construction. With the current US tariffs imposed and the blacklisting of Huawei in the US, China will be fortunate if 2019 growth stays above 6.0%. Still a strong number but an inflated one and one that is in serious decline. My hope is they come back to the negotiating table and make an agreement with the US that is beneficial for both nations so they can both drop all the trade war nonsense. It's good for the US to trade with a prosperous China, and it's good for China to trade with a prosperous US.

  15. As an indian i must we have enemy on both side Pakistan and China and both is trying to destabilise india. China is silent enemy of india and Chinese policy with India is Sometimes aggressive and sometimes friendly which is confusing. we also are biggest costumer of Chinese products in whole world and if we stop using it chinese economy will stall u know these products are not good like US products like Apple H.P etc u can only use it for small time after some time it began to malfunctioning i had used it so i am telling it and Chinese cheap products are flooded into our markets, mobiles and electronics are nothing but china stuff and also slowly destroying Indian industries I want my government to ban Chinese products or at least impose high taxes.
