What is Going on in China?

What is Going on in China
The news about China’s economic woes is wide spread and it seems that the equity markets in China are along for the ride. This has been felt even in the stock markets in the US since investors like Efraim Landa can become concerned about what impact China’s economy may have on the economy on a global level. Plenty of negative influences are heard because of the upheaval.

Is China okay?

It’s rather obvious even to the casual observer that everything is not running perfectly in China. However, there should be some thought given to the economic growth in China and perhaps there is a different perspective from which to view it. In 2015, the GDP of China has been estimated at more than $11 trillion. This is not actually too bad when you compare them to others like Germany and Japan who are both closing in on the United States at 7% growth factors. This is an enormous amount of growth considering it’s not been done before. China’s economy has lots of prospects and investors who are patient will likely be rewarded eventually.

The market hasn’t come close to being saturated with new, inventive ways to save time, save money or enhance social media usage as we know it.

Global Economy

In a time of needed recovery in many countries around the world from the recent economic downturn, many begin to wonder how this recovery can happen.  What is that actually drives an economy and pushes it towards growth and success? What factors need to be focused on to stimulate this recovery quickly?  Individual economies have experienced downturns in the recent years, but as an interconnected global economy, the financial crisis was not enough to stop growth.  To propel the global economy forward, factors such as physical capital, labor, productivity, and investment need to be prioritized.

What is the State of the Global Economy?

The economies of the world are constantly becoming more integrated through trade and investment into one global economy that has grown rapidly over time.  In 1970, the world produced about 12 trillion dollars worth of goods and services and 2010; world production reached 41 trillion dollars.  In four decades, global GDP has increased almost four times.  The pace of the global economy’s growth is gradual and consistent.  Individual nations may experience extreme economic boosts and downturns, but the overall global economy continues a slow uphill movement.  Even after a significant global financial crisis like 2009, there was a dip for that year but global GDP had fully recovered by the next year and even exceeded pre-crisis levels by the year after that Read the rest of this entry
