Chinese inflation slows to 4.2% in November from 5.5% previously and against expectations of 4.4%. The soft number will do nothing to stand in the way of Beijing continuing to loosen monetary policy. Hong Kong -1.7% and Shanghai flat following the sharp downturns in the West earlier today.

    Ha ha.

     

    Do they drop the 1 off of inflation numbers in China? Or only count a limited subset of products like in the USA which excludes food and energy in core (official) figures?

    I would be careful about investing in China. I dont trust their numbers except to believe they are slowing. Besides they have never let the rule of law govern their activity.

    China risk assets will decline if other world risk assets decline. Which is the most probable outcome in 2012. No much China will be able to do about it with a globalized world these days.

    Can we believe anything the Chinese government says? For that matter, can we believe anything our own government says?!
