Mahoney’s article confirms my own optimistic view for China. My views were more intuitive and based on my observation when I spent a month in China last year. Mahoney’s central point is that the Chinese state can and will intervene much more strongly in China than in other large economies. By way of an example, look at the massive Keynesian intervention in 2008 when the Chinese state invested in large infrastructure projects; many would argue that this intervention precipitated inflation – on balance, I think that it was an excellent call.

Are you optimistic or pessimistic about the economic outlook for China?

Any thoughts?
