The Growth Commission has released one of the most interesting documents I have read in a long time called Strategies For Sustained Growth And Inclusive Development

Not specific to China, this report looks at how countries develop from agrarian societies to modern ones….and it is fascinating.

If you are someone who is in need of a document to capture what you are seeing in China, or you are external to China what is going on here, take the time this weekend to read it.

Living in China, I can honestly see nearly everything mentioned in part 2 here right now. the issues related to inflation, labor, the movement from low end to high end, removal of subsidies, etc.. the vast majority of it matches… so much so, that I would have a difficult time picking anything out as a best case cause I would need to repeat that 20 times.

Some of the graphs (see my favorite is the one above) are really awesome, and I highly suggest focusing your efforts on Part 3: Growth Challenges in Specific Country Contexts  , Part 4. New Global Trends , and Statistical Appendix: The World Economy and Developing Countries Since WWII

This report is one of my top 3 favorite reports for this year… and I may even read it a second time

    Thanks for pointing to this report! Looking forward to reading it: a skim through it was enticing.
