China fourth quarter GDP growth slows to 6.4 percent

China’s economy cooled in the fourth quarter under pressure from faltering domestic demand and bruising US tariffs. Fourth-quarter GDP grew at the slowest pace since the global financial crisis, easing to 6.4 per cent on-year. Asian markets were largely positive in spite of the data - after Chinese government officials indicated the slowdown was stabilizing and the impact from it was manageable.

I’m not sure but a part of this are the US sanctions right?

The nation is a demographic time bomb anyway. Twenty-year projections are going to get pretty interesting as an aging workforce and huge gender gap take their toll.

Not low enough. Papa Trump, newly liberated Europe, Oceania, great Russian Bear, Latin America must all stave off trading and stop feeding the cancer that is China. An out of control malignant growth ( their population only boomed when mao said he wanted cheap work force) is by definition cancer thus only factual and nothing else.

When you're constructing buildings no one wants, the economic bubble you've created will soon catch up to the nation.

6.4 percent GDP growth is exaggerated. From all accounts their economy is getting destroyed at the moment.

6.4 percent is highly exaggerated. It’s probably closer to 3 percent.

The cooling of their internal market may be something they are doing intentionally to deal with inflation.
