The Conference Board Economics Watch® China View

  • Excess money created by China’s stimulus and unfavorable global commodity prices are creating the most difficult conditions for inflation control in a decade.
  • Limited economic rebalancing following the global economic crisis raises questions about the long-term sustainability of China’s growth path.
  • Inflationary periods like the current one tend to be followed by 0.5 to 1.0 percent slower GDP growth, beginning three quarters after inflation becomes too high.
  • Tighter credit and weak consumer confidence will cause continued but more moderate growth in coming quarters.
