Fear of the Dragon and the Economist

The economist always does a good job covering China. They are astute enough to know where all the action is.

China is now the world's biggest exporter and this will not change any time soon.

This article goes through all the old "overvalued" currency and "global balancing" stuff. Nothing new but a good summary.

Fear of the dragon [Economist]

MANY people start the new year by resolving to change their old ways. Not China. On December 27th Zhong Shan, the country’s vice-minister of trade, declared that China will continue to increase its share of world exports. Figures due out on January 11th are expected to show that China’s exports in December were higher than a year ago, after 13 months of year-on-year declines. China’s exports fell by around 17% in 2009 as a whole, but other countries’ slumped by even more. As a result China overtook Germany to become the world’s largest exporter and its share of world exports jumped to almost 10%, up from 3% in 1999 (see chart).
