Some more thoughts…

For you from some of my recent magazine reading.

China

Like other middle-income countries China has a debt problem about one third of its GDP is tied up in an indebted property sector that appears to be in crisis. Like other middle-income countries China risks “getting old before it gets rich”; its working-age population is shrinking and its death rate may exceed its birth rate this year for the first time.

China has vast environmental degradation, but is advancing technologically at an extraordinary pace, particularly in areas that are pivotal in warfare – not just in hypersonic missiles but quantum computing.
