Euphoria and Meltdown in China
by Jeremy at 4:27 pm EDT, May 1, 2004

The only issue on the table is whether the behavior of China's authorities reveals deep concern or outright panic. That is an interesting question -- and not a trivial one -- but it does not cut to the heart of the problem, which is that China, contrary to popular perception or even its extremely high economic growth rate, is in serious trouble and is desperately searching for a soft landing -- a landing that might not be available.

Underneath apparently astounding economic achievements, the Asian economy is actually hollowing itself out.

Saying "never mind" is an interesting strategy, but essentially Beijing has let the cat out of the bag. In reality, the enormity of the problem is dawning on everyone.

The sky is not falling for the global economy. It might be falling for China.

Origami paper tigers.

Can you hear them laughing in Bangalore?
